Interested in adopting an older lovebird

Hello,

My husband and I are both allergic to cats and dogs but would like to have a pet. Someone suggested that lovebirds are very loving, affectionate pets with alot of personality. We have no children and could put a great deal of time and energy into the bird. We were thinking that perhaps there is a rescue organization in Ontario (Southwestern) that may have lovebirds who couldn't be kept by their owners, etc.

If there is anyone out there who can recommend a place like that or knows of someone who can't keep their bird, just post here and I'll check back regularily.

Thank you for your advice and suggestions.

Kelly

Hi! To find a lovebird to adopt, you might try this place:
http://www.secondflight.org/

If you want a tame, friendly bird you can handle, make sure it was a handfed baby. They make excellent and charming, if demanding pets, but it sounds like you have the time for one.

If you don't have your heart set on a lovebird, budgies are wonderful pets, who can learn to talk quite easily. Some have extensive vocabularies and are cute and amusing.
