Meet Finnigan! He was surrendered to Last Chance at Life Rescue with his brother Cinnamon the Pineapple Conure. Finnigan is an 8 year old Green Cheek Conure who has limited use of one wing due to an accident when he was still very young. This doesn't stop him at all, and he is full of personality and has a can do attitude! He is charismatic and well-adjusted and gets used to new things and places pretty quickly. Finnigan likes both men and women.
We were told he can get nippy with women, but can also tolerate them just fine, it depends on the individual. He is an adult bird who just knows what and who he likes, and isn't afraid to let you know! He loves being out of his cage and snuggling, and is a big chewer, so chew toys are a must for this handsome little guy. He has lived with other birds before and enjoys their company, so long as they don't share a cage.
If you or someone you know is interested in adopting Finnigan, please email email@example.com! 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, etc) - $200
Large birds/parrots (african greys, 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!
