Re: Birds Adopted From A Rescue

Thank you for creating this thread. I love birds but haven't had one consistently for years due to my job, meaning when my budgies and cockatiel passed I didn't bring in a bird till 2014. This is when Buddy, our Mexican Redhead joined our family. I've been looking at bringing another bird to our home but haven't done it yet. I REALLY would like to bring in a rescue, give a needy, loving bird a home. This is great info to gain, I would hate to feel like I have to or consider returning a bird.

Re: Birds Adopted From A Rescue

If anyone knows of birds (or any animals for that matter) that are in hoarding situations and filthy conditions, PLEASE REPORT THEM! Humane society, police, ASPCA, USDA (yep they have some involvement in these types of cases), even the media. They need to be reported and inspected. Our society has a long way to go before animals have the rights they deserve, but please report it if you know of a hoarder treating birds badly!

I don't have experience with rescues, but I want to applaud your interest and research, and the good answers/support you're receiving here!
Good luck!

Re: Birds Adopted From A Rescue

We adopted our BG from Wings of Love in Lexington. The - owner? - president? - started rescuing dogs, then someone asked her to take a parrot, and now they have maybe a dozen birds. Some are in cages (one evil macaw that will bite the nearest person if any man enters the room) but most were on top of their cages or on perches, talking to each other, begging for attention. The birds seemed to love her and her kids. The cages were clean and everyone had food and water. I think there are a couple of women who do most of the work, and they post photos and stories of all the birds on Facebook, including photos of the vet bills. They take the birds all the way to Louisville to an avian specialist vet. J did make some donations to them before we adopted, and we did pay an adoption fee, but that fee was less than one of that bird's vet bill. I thought it was a very transparent organization - I think they spend a lot of their own money on the birds, and do wonderful work with even the feather pluckers. They work to find good homes for their birds, because it means they have the resources to take in another. Our Gus had a decent start in life, though not a decent diet, and then spent 8 long years locked in a filthy cage in a dark room. Wouldn't you think a bird like that would be insane? And yet we were both scratching that sweetie's head 25 hours after bringing him home. Yea, he has had brief episodes of anxiety and he seems to miss his family, but tonight - this is Tuesday and we brought him home Saturday - he simply wallowed in scratching sessions and curled up in J's lap like a kitten. If that's not a good enough recommendation, I don't know what is. Anyone within driving distance of Lexington who is looking to adopt, you won't regret checking them out.

Re: Birds Adopted From A Rescue

I have 2 birds that where rescues through the Aviary I deal with and both where very short in rescue before I got them I think the U2 was only in the store 2 days before I took him home. was give up due to noise no abuse, so he had no problems,and Ricky my Sun Conure was only at the store a day. now he is an educated fella he came from one of the dorms at OSU no need to ask why,ok I will tell you some dumb human. who had no idea how noisy Conures can be.

Re: Birds Adopted From A Rescue

I don't have a contribution other than to thank everybody for the open and frank exchange of information. Sharing knowledge/opinions is power.
