Northeast Avian Rescue is currently fostering approximately ten parakeets. They range from lightly socialized to almost feral, but they are gorgeous and would make a wonderful addition to a quiet home with a family that's interested in more or less letting them just be birds and hang out.
Our adoption guidelines for parakeets are a little bit different than some of the other birds we re-home. Because these are flock birds and also because they often come in and/or are housed with other birds while at the rescue, we believe it is important to ensure that our 'keets do not end up alone, without other bird company, after they leave NEAR. For that reason, our policy on parakeets is to either adopt them out as pairs (or more), or as singles to homes where there is at least one other parakeet or other small bird. While we do realize that our adopters will take wonderful care of their new family member, we also want to make sure that the bird is able to maximize its "quality of life" once it leaves our care. During the process, adoption representatives will be happy to discuss various ways your parakeets can be socialized with humans while still retaining their socialization (bond) with other birds... Before you know it, you'll be one big, happy family!
If you're interested in meeting our parakeets, please go to our website www.rescueparrots.org and fill out an adoption application today. Northeast Avian Rescue is located in East Greenbush New York and provides adoption services within a 200 mile radius of Albany, NY.
While our rescue survives because of your generous donations, we do not charge adoption fees and a donation is NOT required to adopt a bird -- we are looking for the best possible match between person and bird. That's something no amount of money can buy!
