Chico's Story...
Chico has many years ahead, since Amazons can live as long, as or longer, than people. Chico was with the same person all his life until he came to us. Unfortunately, they fed almost solely seed, which is the absolute worst diet for a parrot, especially for less active Amazons. Chico also had pox in his early years, a virus that used to affect wild caught blue front Amazons in quarantine. It caused a problem with his eye that was not treated. We've had that eye removed, put him on a much better diet and given him a bigger cage. 36 is the new 16 for Chico! Checkout his videos on our YouTube sitel

Phoenix Landing's primary areas of operation include: Maryland (MD), Washington (DC), Virginia (VA), and North Carolina (NC). All potential adopters/fosters must attend one of our free educational seminars, have a brief in-home visit. For this reason, adoptions and fosters are limited to our locations in MD, DC, VA, NC, SC, TN, and close surrounding areas (including bordering locations in PA, DE, WV). If you live beyond our adoption areas, we encourage you to locate a non-profit adoption organization in your area. Many parrots need our help!

Thank you for considering adoption!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chico, a Asheville Amazon was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Amazon for sale in Asheville, or seeking a Amazon 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 Amazon breeders who help with Amazon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Asheville paves the way for another one to be saved.
