Ben's Info...

Ben's Story...
Ben is a blue crowned conure, approximately 13 years old. He has been well loved his whole life, but like many birds, his family decided they couldn’t give him enough time and attention. They check in with us regularly to see how he’s doing. He is such a sweetie, just don’t use your hands! Fingers are scary. He gladly steps onto a rope perch to go places.

Ben likes to say “whatcha doing?” "Pretty bird" and “I’m a good bird!” If you have a cat, he'll do a great job of calling "Here kitty kitty" We know you'll just fall head over heels for Ben when he turns on the charm!- all very endearing.

Ben has developed some very good eating habits, and runs to his fresh food bowl enthusiastically every morning. Nutriberries are also a big favorite! He has Harrison’s pellets on hand too, so he’s on a very good diet. Ben likes to spend a good deal of time outside the cage, and he enjoys the 36” dometop cage he lives in at The Landing so he can be up high too.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ben, a Asheville Conure was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Conure for sale in Asheville, or seeking a Conure from a breeder in Asheville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Asheville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Asheville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Conure breeders who help with Conure rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Asheville paves the way for another one to be saved.
