Adopt a Shelter Pet
parakeets for sale

Image by caruba
Depending on who you ask, 3 to 4 million cats and dogs are euthanized in US shelters every year [1].

These animals at some point in their lives ended up homeless and unwanted, and many municipal shelters and "pounds" routinely euthanize their animals if they aren’t reclaimed or adopted within approximately a week.

On the other hand, an enormous industry produces puppies for sale in so called "puppy mills". Millions of dogs spend their short and miserable lives in tiny wire cages under horrific conditions, and their only purpose is to breed and make money for their owners. [2]

With practically no exceptions, the puppy you can buy from a pet store or online was born in such a facility. Puppy mills are typically USDA licensed. The USDA requirement for a dog cage? Six inches taller and wider than the dog. [3]

Adopting a shelter dog truly saves a life, and doesn’t support the puppy mill industry. Shelter dogs are evaluated and temperament tested before they become available for adoption. They are typically spayed/neutered, up-to-date with vaccinations, and often microchipped.

There are many breed rescues and pure breed dogs in shelters as well. Please spread the word and save a life.

Can’t adopt right now? Ask if your shelter offers a foster program. Can’t have a cat or dog? Adopt a guinea pig, parakeet, or rabbit from a local small animal rescue or humane society.

The dog in this picture is Desdemona, a Lab/Pit mix, and she is available for adoption. She’s sporting her "adopt me" vest during an event in Hoboken, NJ.

Buy Birds Stores that would buy/trade birds in Evans or Augusta GA?

Question by Eugene: Stores that would buy/trade birds in Evans or Augusta GA?
I plan to sell my Sun Conure to a store. I’m not allowed to sell them online so I’m looking for a store that would buy birds. If not then I’m willing to trade birds with the store.

PS. There’s this place called Wednesday’s Wings in the yellow pages. It says that they’re exotic bird dealers. Whenever I call them they won’t pick up. Do they buy birds?

Best answer:

Answer by picktownarianne
I don’t know of ANY store that buys birds from people. If you aren’t a licensed breeder, stores won’t generally PAY for a bird. They will, however, take the bird from you in some cases. But you won’t get any money from it. And they most certainly won’t TRADE birds. If you couldn’t take care of one bird, they aren’t going to give you another. But if you still want to make money from your bird, your only options are online. You could try

You could also try GOING to the store to ask them about their policies. Here’s the address: 3301 Peach Orchard Road, Augusta, GA 30906-4863. Type that into and find your way there.

Parrot Q&A: How do you train a parrot to be social?

Question by Amazin Caucasian: How do you train a parrot to be social?
Im planning on gettin an eclectus or an amazon parrot and was wondering if anyone had any tips on a good effective way on socializing the parrot with people. I know it takes a lot of time and patience but i am up for it, does anyone have suggestions or experiences on how to socialize one of these parrots?

Best answer:

Answer by tripleateam
Keep it Positive
The key to training your parrot is to keep the interaction positive. Three concepts provide the basis for parrot training:

1. Parrot does something good –> give a reward
2. Parrot does something undesirable –> ignore it
3. Never punish your parrot

Obviously, this is a bit simplistic, but your goal is to shape your bird’s behavior into what you want by a giving a reward for good things and ignoring (no reward, no reaction) for bad things.

The reward can be a favorite food treat, but simple praise or a play session with a treasured toy can be good motivation for some birds. If your bird is doing something undesirable, you must simply ignore the bird (your bird will not respond to punishment).

A negative reaction can turn into a reward if your bird is looking for attention (negative attention is better than no attention), so you must be careful not to unintentionally cause some undesirable behaviors to increase due to your reaction. Ignoring behavior might first cause it to intensify, but eventually the undesirable behavior will most likely stop.

How you approach training can help keep training positive:

* Train only when you are relaxed. Positive training does take patience!
* Pick a time when your bird is attentive and not distracted by eating, preening, or household activity.
* Frequent, but short, training sessions are generally more effective. A few minutes at a time, several times a day, works well.
* Pick a favorite reward (but don’t overdo it if it is food).
* Once your bird catches on to something, don’t give a treat every time (switch to praise part of the time) or your bird may only do the behavior if he/she knows you have a treat handy.
* End each session on a positive note. Wait for a successful attempt or at least a good try at whatever you are training, give a treat, and move on to something else.
* Keep training sessions upbeat and fun for your bird.

I love birds and parrots are wonderful pets. Good luck in your training! :)

Bird Identification Can someone help with backyard bird identification?

Question by zayneb: Can someone help with backyard bird identification?
We have noticed some unusual birds at our feeders. They look like cardinals, except they are all brown. A few have the orange beaks like a cardinal, but most have brown beaks. But as I said, they are shaped exactly like a cardinal, with top crest and all. We live in southern Ohio, and I cannot seem to find a bird that fits this description for this area, unless they are just mutant cardinals. Anyone have any ideas?
I know female cardinals are less red than males, but they generally still have some red to them. These are COMPLETELY brown, and are too old to be juveniles as well.

Best answer:

Answer by bonami28803
Sounds like the female cardinal, she is brown, looks just like the red one, which is the male. Buy a field guide to birds.

Caged Bird Feeders What type of natural deer repellent can I use to keep deer away from my bird feeders?

Question by : What type of natural deer repellent can I use to keep deer away from my bird feeders?
I have woods behind my house and my mom feeds the deer (which I do not condone; I really wish she wouldn’t, but I can’t stop her) so our back yard is always filled with them. I just installed a new bird feeding station in my back yard in a brick lined box that has trees in it. The box is built up about a foot and a half off the ground and has two large trees enclosed in it. Between the two trees, I put the new bird station that had three hooks for bird houses/ feeders, a suet box, and a plastic bowl for a bath. Yesterday I filled the bowl with thistle, put a suet in the suet cage and put up one bird house that was full of seed and had peanuts in cages on both sides for the squirrels. However, this morning when I checked it, everything was empty except for the suet. My mom managed to take two pictures of the deer at work on my bird feeder, so I know they are the culprits. Is there anything natural that I can spray or sprinkle in the box that will keep the deer away but will still keeps the birds and squirrels coming? Are there any spices that they are not particularly fond of? Any type of vinegar or oil, perhaps?

Thanks for any help!

Bird Suet Cakes Is there anyway to set up a bird feeder without feeding invasive species?

Question by Rain Dear: Is there anyway to set up a bird feeder without feeding invasive species?
I’d like to set up a bird feeder, and I live in a suburb about 10 mi south of Boston. What I do not want to do is feed any invasive birds, like house sparrows, european startlings, or rock pigeons. Are there any seeds or suet cakes on the market that are rejected by these species? Are there any other tricks to feeding only native species? Thanks.

Best answer:

Answer by R K
what you put out for food will determine what comes around. if you put out a hummingbird feeder
only hummingbirds can use it. if you hang up a sock full of thistle seed, only finches can use it. if you
put out a pan of wild bird seed anything around your area will eat it,including deer if any are around.
deer love bird seed. squirrels will eat it too if they are around.

Blue Jay Bird How do i care for a baby blye jay bird?

Question by mschoen2u: How do i care for a baby blye jay bird?
this morning I found a baby blue jay bird in my drive way, it is in a cage now with water and a few bread crumbs, what else can I do for this lil guy to keep him alive?

Best answer:

Answer by GOODD
Does he have feathers at all? If he does you need to put him back outside. Baby birds with feathers take several days to learn to fly after they leave the nest. The parents are probably around somewhere.

Birds don’t drink a lot of water so giving him water will most likely drown him. And I’m pretty sure he’s not going to eat bread crumbs.

Call your animal control officer to get the number for a wildlife rehab center and get him down there.

#1 rule for wildlife: If you see a baby animal outside LEAVE IT ALONE
