Don't Buy a Parrot - Adopt A Parrot!

Don't Buy a Parrot - Adopt A Parrot!

Occasionally people call or e-mail me asking me whether I can help them find a Quaker or other parrot to serve as a human companion. Sometimes these requests seem to me a bit whimsical, and which case I discourage them because when you contemplate bringing a parrot into your home you must prepare to make a significant long-term commitment to an emotionally demanding, highly intelligent creature who might even outlive you. On the other hand, such requests are often serious, for example the attempt to find a parrot to cheer up an existing companion who's pining for his or her mate. In either case I try to guide these requestors toward a legitimate bird adoption agency. There are many legitimate agencies around, including Adopt-A-Pet (formerly 1-800-Save-A-Pet), which functions as a clearinghouse designed to match birds put out for adoption with prospective human adopters. Using Adopt-A-Pet is easy; just select your pet type, type in your zip code with a travel range, and search. When I searched Adopt-A-Pet today, there were many parrots looking for nice people to care for them. So please use a service of this kind if you're looking for a companion and are prepared to make the commitment.
