Grumpy Old Man

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.

Just Being Me...

Milo is a 20 year old male Double Yellow Head Amazon.  He got in trouble for being a normal, sometimes aggressive, sexy Amazon kind of guy.  He is a lot of fun otherwise and will make someone a great pet. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $300
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
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 now has a young friend, Madison, she would like to live with

Adoption fee for this bird is $20 per bird.
Tucu Who?

Andy is a 30 something male Tucuman Amazon who is looking for a new home due to unforeseen circumstances. He is nice and talks a little when he feels like it. He is a little small in size for an Amazon, but not in attitude!

Adoption fee for this bird is $300
She's a Swinger!

Meet Abby, a real swinger. She came to us because the family just didn't want to care for her anymore. She is a sweet, active bird, but has issues with her wings and is not able to fly. Her favorite swing must go with her! 

Adoption fee for this bird is $75
Mystery Man

Larry is a real mystery man. We know he is a cockatoo. That's it. He was dropped off at another local dog and cat shelter and the person walked out without giving any information. Larry is naked and some of his baldness is probably permanent. We have done testing on him and he appears to be healthy. He is sweet and a talker. Hopefully someone can see beyond his nudity and love him for the sweetheart he is. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $300
More Doves

Jules, and his friends Frederick and Frannie are ringneck doves of unknown age and sex. They can all go together, or Jules can go by himself. Doves are sweet and low maintenance. 

Adoption fee for this bird is $10 per bird
And even more...

Peace and her friend Harry are white ringneck doves, about 10 years old. Doves are so sweet, so easy to love. Can you make room in your home for some dove love?
