Many pet parents prefer to choose a young bird because they want to train their new pet themselves and bond with them over their lifetime. However, there are many rewards and advantages to adopting a mature adult bird. Mature birds can be well-trained and friendly; and there are many adoptable birds in need of lifelong, loving homes.

Many birds in pet bird adoption groups were lovingly cared for by devoted caretakers who subsequently developed health conditions that made it a challenge to maintain the standard of care their birds were accustomed to or the bird’s caretaker passed away. Unforeseeable life situations like job loss or a change in living situation can also cause a bird to lose his or her home. And there are also individuals who find themselves “in over there heads” in trying to care for birds they might have inherited, found, been gifted or purchased — they realize that the bird deserves much more than they are capable of providing.There are many legitimate agencies around, including (formerly 1-800-Save-A-Pet), which functions as a clearinghouse designed to match birds put out for adoption with prospective human adopters. Using Adopt-A-Pet is easy; just select your pet type, type in your zip code with a travel range, and search. When I searched Adopt-A-Pet today, there were many parrots looking for nice people to care for them.
