The Seattle Animal Shelter is looking for homes for 110 parakeets its officers rescued this morning. They are giving them away free of charge if you meet the right requirements.
The owner of 110 parakeets were handed over to the Seattle Animal Shelter after a complaint was made against the owners. The birds were kept in cages in an apartment but the shelter said no charges will be laid against the owner.
The shelter is now offering the birds for adoption. They are giving them to people who want them. No charge. Whoever wants to adopt a bird will be allowed up to two birds. They must fill out an adoption application and they have to have their own bird cage.
The size of the cage if you want to have 2 birds has to be at least 20 inches by 12 inches by 18 inches for one bird or 40 inches by 20 inches by 32 inches.
The shelter said the birds normally live up to 20 years. Anyone that is thinking about adopting one or two of these birds needs to be able to provide a cage that allows the bird room to fly, water and food trays, cuttlebones and suitable enrichment toys
Budgies eat a variety of foods like fresh vegetables.
If anyone in the Seattle area wants one they can call (206)386-PETS (7387) from 12 to 6 pm.
I think it is nice of the shelter to give the birds away free. I hope they find homes.
