article imageUpdate: All 110 rescued parakeets have new homes

By Brandigal (Donna)     Mar 28, 2007 in Lifestyle
110 parakeets that were rescued from a one bedroom apartment all have found new homes.
Update to this story: Shelter_looking_for_homes
When the doors opened today at the Seattle Animal Shelter, there was 50 potential adopters standing in line outside the shelter with cages in hand all wanting to give the birds a loving home.
The Shelter advertised they would give up to 2 birds per family free of charge. All they had to do was bring a suitable cage that met standards and fill out the routine adoption papers.
The owner of the birds cooperated fully when animal control showed up at this apartment because of the noise complaints.
They could hear the birds from the street. They expected from the sounds to find about 50 birds, instead they found 110 birds. The man had been collecting them for about 5 years.
He did say he tried to give them to another shelter before but was told only 5 birds would be kept and the others would be put down.
The birds, because of having so many, were kept in unsanitary conditions with a lot of feces and debris in the cage and a lot of dust.
No charges will be laid because he did cooperate. So all the birds have new loving homes and a happy ending.
