A video I made about Foster Parrots in MA. These guys really are amazing and I just visited there for the first time and I was blown away. If you are ever looking for a good cause to donate to, please consider them.
Please note that I strongly believe parrots do NOT make suitable pets. They are essentially wild animals that belong in the wild. I am against breeding and the sale of birds for the pet trade.
Unfortunately, just because they are born in captivity does not mean they are not wild animals- it just means they cannot survive in the wild. Breeders who say they are preserving species by breeding are not telling the truth. How many breeders release their birds into the wild? None.
They are only ensuring that more and more parrots will be showing up in more and more rescues/shelters and sanctuaries across the country. These animals were not meant to be in our homes- they were meant to be flying free in the wild.
If you would like a parrot as a pet, please do extensive research beforehand and ADOPT ONLY! There are WAY too many unwanted and perfectly wonderful parrots in need of good homes.
Jasper and Charlie were both adopted and they are amazing, lovable, extraordinary creatures. For more info, please visit:
