My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Shirley is a sweet budgie with an interactive personality. She will hop onto an outstretched hand, especially if treats are involved! She also enjoys spending time outside of her cage once or twice a day, stretching her wings and exploring. Inside her cage, she likes gazing out the window and watching budgie videos, using a variety of perches with different textures. Her favorite toys are cupcake paper shredders. As a treat, she is also learning to enjoy vegetables. Shirley is a social bird and needs company! She would do best in a home that already has budgies, but because she has a history of egg-laying, she cannot be housed with males. If you have room in your flock for a friendly budgie, then apply to adopt Shirley today! Adoption fee: $15.

Additional adoption info

Whether interested in adopting a particular bird or not, you will need to fill out an Adoption Application, which can be found on our website. From there, our adoption team will process your application (including background check, veterinarian check for all current animals, and a home visit)
We will not ship any of our adoptable birds, and have a 100-mile adoption radius. We do not adopt to breeders. We are not able to adopt birds into homes that use Teflon product or smoke due to toxicity dangers.
