A couple of ways to find birds looking for a good home is to check the local animal shelter or a pet rescue site like Rescueme.org or Petfinder.com A list of rescue organizations is also available on the BeautyofBirds.com. Many birds are also listed for free on Craigslist.
Before adopting a bird, make sure that the home, cage and supplies are ready before the bird arrives. Be aware that some species of birds are very difficult to handle and need time to adjust to their new surroundings. Have the bird checked out by a veterinarian as soon as possible after adoption. Quarantine the bird for about six weeks before introducing it to other birds.
