6 Reasons to Adopt a Rescued Bird

January is Adopt A Rescued Bird Month! Our feathered friends are very cute and lovable pets. However, birds aren’t necessarily the right pet for everyone. There are far too many sweet, lovable birds that desperately need forever homes. Read on as a Cameron Park, CA vet lists some reasons to consider adopting a rescued bird.

Birds Are Adorable

Our feathered friends are really fun to watch! Polly is quite playful, and is often very affectionate. Your little buddy may keep you smiling with her cute antics.

They Don’t Need Training

Although you will need to spend time with Polly, and pay attention to her, you don’t have to train her to do anything. She’ll be just fine doing what birds do naturally!

Everyone Needs A Second Chance

Many birds, especially parrots, are rehomed at least once. This is very sad for Polly, as she gets quite attached to her owners. Sometimes birds are rehomed due to their volume, bad language, or behavioral issues. Birds also sometimes outlive their owners. Or, they may end up at a rescue simply due to unfortunate circumstances. Whatever the reason, these little guys all deserve second chances.

They Brighten Any Home

Birds really do have a lot of wonderful qualities. Their cheery songs, bright colors, and playful antics can help turn any house into a home!

They Aren’t Expensive

Caring for a bird isn’t exactly free: you’ll need to provide Polly with food, toys, perches, and, of course, veterinary care. However, you may find that, overall, birds aren’t as expensive to care for as many other pets. Also, if you are getting a rescued bird, you may find the adoption fees quite reasonable.

Helping Animals Feels Great

If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that you’re an animal lover, like us. Unfortunately, no one person can help every homeless animal out there. However, you can definitely give a bird a second chance at happiness. Saving a bird’s life can be a very beautiful and rewarding experience!


Although adopting a rescued bird can be a wonderful—and life-changing—experience for both you and Polly, it’s a big commitment. Do plenty of research before proceeding, especially if you’ve never had a bird before.
