We rescued some birds from a store that was having a hard time placing them. We are now hoping to find a home for some of them. We would like to place them in groups of 3 or more since they are very bonded and love to snuggle together. If you do not know about the Balinese Finch or Society Finch, they are a very easy bird to keep. Their song is pleasant and not loud, it makes a great white noise. They are very small and do not eat much. They love fresh salad, clover, and grasses. They snuggle together in the nest and they actualy nest in layers like a tiny bird caserole. It is very cute. Most of ours are of the fancy "pied" variety which means they have a lot of white and most have a "crown of fancy feathers" on their head (looks more like bed head to me!). they seem very content to be in a cage. In fact when we transferred the small bird cage into the aviary and left the door open, they did not leave the smaller cage for a week. They only left the small cage when we forced them come out to eat. So, if you have any guilt about caging a bird, that won't apply. These birds will be fine indoors or out, as long as they are protected from rain or extreme heat and cold and have one another to cuddle with in "cold weather" (San Diego cold, not mountain or Northern cold). They must be provided a nest and have snuggle buddies if the temperature will be below 60F. Please tell us about your bird experience (none required, and what setup you have in mind for these birds so we can do our best to match the right birds to the right folks. Thank you!
Luckydog provides lifetime care to pets passed up by adopters due to behavior or health concerns. We are a holistic pet sanctuary so instead of covering up physical symptoms with drugs, we aim to restore balance with nutrition and integrative techniques. Wellness is often achieved via diet, exercise, and other gentle healing methods. Behavior concerns are often remedied by being pat of a well-directed pack. Boundaries, exercise, and good nutrition, can turn an unhappy hound into a placid pooch.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We don't have a public shelter or volunteers to answer the phones. Please email if you are interested in one of our pets. Please tell us about yourself, your living situation, and your current pets so we can determine if you are a good match before we begin the application process.
We do not take pets from the general public for fostering or adoption. Occasionally, we can provide boarding until your special needs pet can be placed.
Our Adoption Process...
We specialize in providing lifetime care to pets who need special attention to thrive. If we do have a pet listed it is available for adoption or sponsorship and will explain this in the pet's bio. Email us and we will send you an application. Once it is approved, we will do a home inspection. An adoption donation ($75-250 for most pets) is taken at the time of adoption. These donations help us pay for veterinary care, training, and supplies and we do not profit from these adoption fees. All pets will be neutered unless health does not permit, in which case we will take a neuter deposit which is fully refundable when the pet is neutered.
