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

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.

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.

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.

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

Joaquim is a Harlequin Macaw, born around 1986. His dad died in a car accident and mom is currently battle cancer. Joaquim is tame, loves to play with his toys and quite a personality.

Left on the sidewalk!

Ruby is a 24 year old Goffin Cockatoo that came to us due to foreclosure. Her owner sat her in front of the house in a box for us to pick up, so we don't have a lot of information on her. She seems very shy, but not aggressive, so she may tame down and be very loveable. She certainly is hoping for a better home! 

Adoption fee for this bird is $250
Looking for a happy ending...

Kiwi is a sweet female Jenday Conure who is 11 years old. She is a child of divorce who would love to have a new home.

Big Brother got caught in the divorce too!

Birdie is another child of divorce. Birdie is a Hahn's Macaw, at least 10 years old, we don't know male or female. Birdie is sweet but shy and will need someone who is really patient. His sister is Kiwi, above, but they should be fine going to separate homes.
