Poco's Story...
Poco is a 21 year old hahns macaw. She is a big chatterbox, and loves to be in the heart of the conversation. People often think they want a talking bird. It's certainly an adorable trait and the words spoken are often very situation appropriate. At the same time, be prepared for repetition and lots of chatter, which doesn't help if you work from home. However, if you are looking for a bird to converse with regularly, Poco will keep you entertained!
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!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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