Special bird with special needs

Greta is a wild caught Blue front amazon, born in 1990. Greta has been a pet bird, but was never tame, so interaction with this bird will not be very hands on. Greta has some leg problems also, so he will need some special perches to sit on. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $250

Greta is sponsored by Henry Dorothy  3/22/18
Sweet Pepper...

Pepper is a 16 year old female Eclectus. She is tame and sweet, but came to us when her owners had to move unexpectedly and could not take her.

 Adoption fee for this bird is $350
Such Handsome lads..

Geordie and Gecko are a father and son pair of Gouldians. One is about 3 years old, the other about 2 years old. They have bounced around a bit and hope to find a safe perch where they can be loved and appreciated. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $40 per bird
Needs a friend

We couldn't get a picture of Pip, our male zebra finch because he moves too fast. But this is what he looks like. He came to us when his friend died and his owner no longer wanted him. Hopefully, someone out there will help write a happy ending to Pip's so far sad story. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $5
Dynamic Duo...

Riley and Mikala are a pair of Mexican Red Head Amazons, about 33 years old. They have been roomies their whole lives, and so they have to go together. They are tame when outside their cage, and are still very active and vocal. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $200 per bird
Handsome to the Max...

Max is a Congo African Grey, about 10 years old. He has bounced around a bit, he is looking for his third home that we know of. While Max has plucked for years, he appears to be happy and healthy. He does have a small vocabulary and can be handled, but is a little shy. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $400
Homeless Macaws

Max is one of three macaws recently taken in from a sanctuary that closed. We have virtually no information on Max, but he really acts like he wants a friend. Max has some special needs, but nothing extreme. We hope he can find a forever home with someone who will love him. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $400
So Wise....and sweet

Sage is a 5 year old female parrotlet that is very sweet. Her owner had to surrender her due to chronic health issues. Sage is a tame little girl that really likes to be with her people.

She's all sweet, not sour

Meet Lemon, a one year old female Indian ringneck. This is one sweet little birdie. She is very tame, talkative and active. Her owners just got way too busy and felt they could not give her the attention she needed. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $200
