Shamrock's Story...
Shamrock is a Hahn's, or red-shouldered, mini macaw. Shamrock is reportedly 12-years-old and female, but we have no proof of age or sex. She is very vocal, non-destructive, and friendly when patiently allowed to warm up to you. She is protective of the person she chooses to be "her person" and can be territorial of her person when sitting with/on them, but with some gentle coaxing, she will go to anyone and enjoys head and under-wing scratches from everybody. Shamrock says a few words and phrases, and makes a few sound effects like "kisses" and dripping water sounds. She is rarely quiet in daytime hours, but usually isn't loud. She just loves her voice, I say! :)

Shamrock is gentle with older children, but will bite, as all parrots do. She is territorial of her cage and will bite even her most favorite person when they reach into her cage, but she's a sweetheart once she's out. Due to her territorial biting, we prefer a home with no small children who may put fingers inside her cage and get bitten.

Shamrock's adoption fee is $400, which includes her large, nice cage and all the toys and perches she has. An adoption application, adoption contract and home visit are required.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lexington 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 Lexington 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 Macaw breeders who help with Macaw rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lexington paves the way for another one to be saved.
