Those where the words that stopped me in my tracks. I was not expecting them and then had to rethink what would happen to my parrots when I could no longer take care of them.
So I have started checking looking around to find new homes for my birds when I could no longer take care of them.
Best solution would be if I could find actual people that would be willing to take my parrots. Move them from one home to a new home.
If you can’t find an actual home – how about a pet club in your area? A lot of clubs have a form of rescue in their bylaws. I believe a parrot club would have a better placement on my pets than people that do not know anything about them.
Checking with your veterinarian to see if they have any suggestions on who might be able to help you make these future plans?
If you have another pet owner you could make a deal with each other to accept each others pets in case of the event that you could no longer take care of them.
You need to do some homework ahead of time. This is not an easy thing to do BUT all pet owners need to think about it before it is needed.
