My red fronted macaw, Honey, died last week after a 6 month battle with diagnosed heart disease. We are really heartbroken. Through the tears, and with almost twenty years' experience with macaws, I am thinking of getting an older macaw from a rescue. I started exploring listings online for adoptions to get a sense of what these rescues have. Filled out lots and lots of adoption application forms days ago with a number of rescues but have still not heard back. I realize that these are volunteer organizations and it might take time. What are your experiences in dealing with rescues? Any insight (and encouragement?!) would be helpful.
