Pet Bird Rescue

Guest Author - Mavis Metcalf

Pet birds, especially parrots, can live many years. When you choose to own a bird, you must consider the lifespan of the type of bird you are getting as well as the different stages in a bird’s life.

Unfortunately many people do not seem able to do this and many, many birds find themselves without a home through no fault of their own.

There are many reasons that people give when wanting to find a new home for their bird.
1 – The bird screams
2 – The bird is messy
3 – The bird bites
4 – The bird plucks
5 – The owners no longer have enough time to spend with the bird
6 – The owner died without finding someone who wanted to take the bird
7 – etc.

I am a member of a parrot club and I receive calls or emails at least twice every month from someone who is looking for a new home for their bird or birds. Many times, we have a club member who is willing to take on another bird, but it is getting harder and harder to find someone who still has room in their home or money in their bank account to take on another mouth to feed.

Many of the people who call, want to sell their bird instead of realizing that they should be giving the bird away as well as offering to pay something to cover the upkeep.

Pet bird rescue organizations are willing to accept a pet bird who no longer has a place he can call home. Many of these rescues however are becoming overcrowded. When you consider that parrots can live for over 60 years and since they may end up in the rescue when only a few years of age, you can understand the expense of keeping dozens of these birds.

Some of the pet bird rescue organizations will try to find another home for a bird and some of them will promise to look after every bird for the rest of his lifetime.

Under the related articles, you will find a link to pet bird rehabilitation organizations. I can not tell you which one would be the best to contact. If you know of other organizations that should be included, please contact me to advise.


After many years of pet bird ownership, I have decided to write e-books about the care of some of these wonderful birds.
