Grumpy Old Man

Pepper the Yellow Nape Amazon on the right lost his home when their parents lost theirs.  Pepper is sweet and talkative when he is away from his cage, but can be grumpy in that amazon way.

Adoption Fee: $300

Shy but Sweet

Sheena is actually a male, so don't hold his name against him.  He is at least 31 years old and has a small vocabulary.  He is shy, but does love attention and will step on a perch.  We suspect he has not be handled in a while, but hope he will respond well if someone wants to work with him.  He has a couple medical issues, so will need some specialized attention.  He came to us due to illness in the family. 

Adoption Fee: $300

Coming Out (of the dark)!

Statler and Waldorf are Jenday Conures.  We know Statler was born in 1998 and Waldorf may be about the same age. They were sweet handfed babies at one point, but ended up in a dark basement, on a seed diet, not being handled for some time. They both have some feather issues due to this. We hope they can stay together.

Adoption fee for these birds is $120

Dove Love....

Piebald and Mari, an adult pair of doves, had found a home. The new owner developed allergies and had to return them, but not before he let them make some more babies! You can see their baby elsewhere on our page.

Adoption fee for these birds is $20 for the pair.

We've had a flood of finches! 

 25 male and female adult zebra finches were dumped on someone's front porch, rescued by Great Plains SPCA and brought in to us. They have had health checks and are ready to go to new homes.

It's finch time! We have 10 new zebras, male and female, all young. Another case of letting your birds make babies, then realizing you have no where for them to go! 

Adoption fee for these birds is $5 per bird

Fleeing from an abusive relationship...

We don't know for sure if Ariel is a boy or girl. Ariel was living with a conure, which resulted in some spats...and a beak injury that may need future veterinary attention. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $40
It's A Mystery....

Keiko's owner died unexpectedly and no one in the family even knew how to feed Keiko. We don't have any history, sex, or age on this orphan. We do know Keiko needs a home.

Adoption fee for this bird is $400
All  By Myself...

While we have 25 other finches, Zippy came in all by herself. Her owner went into care and could not take little Zippy along. A female Zebra Finch, about 5 years old, Zippy is going to be a great pet for someone. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $5
The Doves Just Keep Coming...

Dobber and Dandy came to us when their mom got very sick. We don't have an age for them, but doves are so sweet you don't need to know a lot about them. Seen in the picture is Dandy. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $10 per bird
Meet Keila and Aubrey

 Cinnamon Green Cheek conures, both about 2 years old. They may be females. Their previous owner did not even name them, so we had to. They were tame, but after being left in their cage without attention they have become a little shy. They should tame right back down for someone with a little time and love to give. 

Adoption fee for these birds is $150
Here's Ralpie! 

 He is a Severe Macaw who we rescued from a tree. We have no information on him and no owner came forward to claim him. He has a little bit of an attitude, so maybe someone just let him loose, we don't know. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $200
Fuzzy Wuzzy Parrot

Here's Harry, a 19 year old male eclectus with a long history of plucking. We had to make room for him when his owner called threatening euthanasia...nice. Harry sometimes has an attitude. He has had extensive testing for his plucking. Since he has plucked for so long, it may have just become a bad habit. If you can overlook his plucking and give him a warm and loving home he would be so grateful. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $ 300
Beautiful Voices, Beautiful Birds

Seen in the photo is Sebastian, a 2 year old Green Singing finch male. He came in with his brother, Tolliver, who is also a two year old male. They are singing quite nicely and should be able to stay together if you have a nice large cage for them. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $10 per bird
Have Mercy!

Mercy was found as a nestling who came down in a storm. She was nursed back to health by a wildlife volunteer. This type of dove is not normally found in the wild. Since she was found so young, she cannot and should not be released back into the wild. She will make a great companion for someone. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $20
Double Trouble

Trevor and Tierney are a pair of Quaker Parrots. Trevor was born in 1998 and Tierney was possibly born around the same time. We don't have much history as they were seized from a hoarding situation several miles away. They may be nice, and while we would like to keep them together, they can be separated if necessary.

Adoption fee for this bird is $40 per bird
