My story

Dash is a shy little budgie who is not hand tame but loves to explore her foster home. She loves to climb her cage and chat with the other birds in her foster home. Dash is one of the babies that was found outside in a birdhouse being cared for by the parents. She may not like hands, but she is trying pellets and lettuce and is less fearful of new experiences like her siblings. Dash made fast friends with another young budgie in her foster home and must be adopted with her friend Blu. *sex of all budgies under one year old cannot be guaranteed. Adoption Fee: $30 for both birds

Go meet their pets

We regularly hold “Meet the Birds” events, where the public can learn more about us, our birds, and our mission. We also attend community events to inform people about our mission and to show some of our available birds. Those interested in a particular bird must first be pre-approved to adopt by filling out an adoption application. Visit our website for info on upcoming events.

More about this rescue

While the public has become more familiar with puppy mills and the issue of dog and cat overpopulation, most people are not aware of the plight of homeless companion birds. These animals are victims of over-breeding just as other pet species are, and despite the illegality, many are still wild-caught. In addition to the problems faced by homeless pets of all kinds, birds have the added "burden" of longevity. Parrot species can live thirty, fifty, even eighty years. This increases the likelihood that a bird will have multiple homes in his or her lifetime. STAR is a 501(c)(3) charity formed to address the issue of homeless birds in the St. Louis metropolitan area. Our volunteers foster a variety of bird species, with the eventual goal of placement in forever homes. We also strive to educate and instruct the public in not only the care of companion birds, but in the appreciation of wild birds as well. We have volunteers who can speak to children and adults on a range of topics.
