Birds are sensitive and intelligent companions that will surprise you with their beauty and song. Here at the Animal Rescue League of Boston we have several different species of birds available for adoption between our three branches. January is Adopt-A-Rescued-Birth Month and if you’ve been thinking of getting a pet bird, don’t wait any longer adopt your new companion today.
Curry is a beautiful yellow finch and is one of four finches that are available at our Dedham Adoption Center. These finches came to us when the owner became overwhelmed with the amount of birds in their care. If you are interested in adopting a pair of finches, please contact the shelter at 781-326-0729, or stop by during visiting hours. We do ask that you provide a picture of your caging already set up in advance of adoption. These finches require a flight cage that is at least 30 inches in length. They will need to go home in pairs and their adoption fee is $10 per bird.
Mercury is a stunning unaltered male gray and yellow Cockatiel. He was brought to the League because he was not the right fit for his previous home. He is estimated to be about 1 year and 3 months old. This super sweet and friendly guy is available for adoption at our Boston Adoption Center. For more information about Mercury please call 617-226-5602 or visit our Boston Adoption Center.
Salty is a 4 year old Cockatiel who’s been searching for his forever home since June! He’s available at our Brewster Adoption Center. He is looking for a home where he will be the only bird.
He wants to interact with people but is timid of hands of new people. He is therefore looking for an experienced home with knowledge about bird behavior. Salty loves to chatter with his family. He wants to be affectionate but sometimes gets scared. Once he trusts you, he bonds strongly. Salty loves to share your lunch – he hangs out in one of the offices and plops himself down on the desk at lunch time.
In his cage or out, with someone he is not yet fully used to, he will shy away from fingers and make “threatening gestures” with his beak if you reach for him. As long as you don’t continue to reach right at him he doesn’t bite. He is a really great, fun little guy as long as you understand him.
Salty has been living in the office of our Assistant Manager, Pamela. We would want anyone interested in him to spend some time with him to get to know him and let him get to know you, and also to speak with Pamela because she knows all his ins and outs.
If you’re interested in learning more about Salty please call at 508-255-1030 or stop by our Brewster Adoption Center to meet him.
