Echo is an adult Double Yellow Headed Amazon who came to the LCAL rescue from an owner who could no longer care for him. He is not hand tame and can be shy at first. He likes to interact from afar has a lot to say! Echo will gladly accept treats from your hand, his favorite is unsalted pistachios. He really is a great talker once he is comfortable in his environment. Amazons do have the potential to make a lot of noise, especially in the early morning and sunset. This is when they do their flock calls in the wild.
We are unsure of his exact age, but we can tell he is an adult bird, most likely near 25 years old. We also are not certain of his gender, but he strikes us as a male. Our rescue does not perform DNA gender tests, as we try to avoid any unnecessary procedures that may scare or stress our birds more than is necessary. Echo has had an exam and has been tested for common parasites and diseases and all tests came back healthy! If you or someone you know is interested in adopting or fostering Echo, please email firstname.lastname@example.org! Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!
About our bird adoptions:
Our birds all receive a medical exam with an avian veterinarian upon intake to our rescue. They receive blood and fecal testing for chlamydia and other parasites. **(Please note that while we do run typical well animal tests on all our adoptable pets, it is impossible to test for every possible ailment, so an initial quarantine period is recommended for any new pet brought into a home with existing pets).** Any rescued birds with existing medical conditions will also be treated as effectively and humanely as possible by an avian veterinarian.
Many of our birds are housed in foster homes, as this is the least stressful environment, and allows each bird to receive individual care and attention.
Upon adoption, each bird receives a free exit exam with an avian veterinarian, which the new owner will attend and have the chance to ask any questions they may have for the vet regarding their new bird.
We do have a minimum donation amount for our birds (though some folks wish to donate more than the minimum, for which we and our rescued pets are eternally grateful). Minimum donation amount varies by size as follows:
Small birds (parakeets, finches, etc) - $50
Medium birds (conures, senegals, etc) - $200
Large birds/parrots (african greys, amazons, macaws, etc) - $400
100% of each adoption donation goes toward the housing and medical care of the pets in our care. We specialize in taking in special needs cases, be it behavioral or medical. Our rescue travels to various shelters in San Diego County and beyond to pull animals from kill lists who are truly in need. We treat their medical conditions, house them and give them love and affection until they find their new homes. For many of the pets in our care, we truly are their Last Chance At Life. Thanks for reading and we look forward to hearing from you!
