When most people think about adopting a pet, it’s usually a dog or a cat, but as you will see on Petfinder, there are many more types of animals who also need homes. Everything from hamsters and chickens to horses and turtles need adopting! Several years ago I adopted two tortoises from a dog shelter on New York’s Long Island.
Since I’m itching to get another bird, I thought I would share some of the adorable feathered friends up for adoption at Wings of Hope in Jackson, N.J. Let’s hope these birdies get a good home!
A Blue Fronted Amazon parrot, Rebel immediately caught our eye not just for his name, but also his yellow face. According to this write up, he is 20 years old, but has not had much interaction with people, and needs some work.
Since we have a good doggie friend by the same name, we of course had to check out this little guy. A cockatiel, he can be a little aggressive at times, but is quite a singer, according to his profile. He gets along with other birds and only pecks at them occasionally. He tends to like men more than women.
This may be the best written pet ad I’ve ever read. And, before those of you who know me read it, yes, I would absolutely *love* to adopt this bird. According to his write up this male conure, with an adorable face, absolutely hates men and children, and it’s suggested he be adopted by a single woman. He loves to eat all table food and has mind of his own. The start of his profile calls him a “quirky little bird.” He likes to be out of his cage and if you leave the room, he will come looking for you! (Isn’t that the most adorable thing?!)
As always, we are not affiliated with any of these shelters, nor can I guarantee these pets are still available. But, I do know they look darn cute, and deserve a great home!
