Other Pets at Shelter...
Rescue Group: St. Louis Avian Rescue (STAR)
Hi. My name is Madison, and I am a 30-year-old Blue Crown Conure. I was very happy in my previous home. My special person loved me. But, something changed; my special person had to go live in a nursing home, and I had nowhere to go. Thankfully, STAR placed me in a foster home.
At first, I was frightened and wouldn’t come to anyone. At least I had my cage and familiar toys. If anyone put a hand in my cage, though, I retreated to the back. I certainly would not step up on an unfamiliar hand. It took the volunteers nearly a month to gain my trust. At first I would get onto a stick. Gradually, I stepped onto a hand. Now, I am learning to cuddle with volunteers. And I even enjoy a neck scritch.
But my sincerest wish is to have a home I can call my own. I need a new special friend. Someone who can cuddle and love me for the rest of my life. Can you be my friend?
Madison's approximate hatch date is 1982, and his adoption fee is $100.
