     I wasn't able to handle this parrot so I was forced to look for somebody with enough patience to keep her. With some research, I found Rescue Me, posted 'Peppa' and immediately received a bunch of emails of people very interested. It was very difficult to choose between several good souls, but God helped me select the most appropriate one. Very fast service and response.

     My two cockatiels found a new home with a woman. She is a pet lover and my birds responded to her immediately. I am so relieved to let them go to this kind person. She is emailing me of their progress, which I so appreciate. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Snow found a wonderful family that had experience with cockatoos. She found someone who is retired and able to spend time with her outside of the cage and who will give her all the love in the world. We are so happy to find the right person (family) for her to grow old with. Thank you, Rescue Me. Snow is full of love and life; her gentleness will do well with an older woman. They both can enjoy time and love growing and playing.

     Joey found a very loving home with a lady who lost a Sun Conure when it died eight years ago. He is taken out every day to be played with and talked to. There is always someone in the home, she home schools her child and her parents also live with her. I told her of the things that Joey likes to eat and she cooks oatmeal for him. He is a lucky bird. Although I miss him, I know he is well taken care of and she sends me pictures of him at least once or twice a month. Thank you for your help, Rescue Me.

     I got many calls and finally picked a nice family with grown children and a husband who had to be home in the day time due to health conditions. They lost their cockatiel and really missed it. The mom and daughter picked up my birds and surprised him with them. I am very happy for my birds that I loved so much, and for the family. She is going to donate to Rescue Me. Thanks for your site!

     My middle aged bird was quickly able to find the perfect forever home thanks to Rescue Me. At first, I had some doubts as I know placing older pets into good homes can take time. After only a day on the website, I received a call from an awesome mother and daughter looking for the right bird to join their family. Three months later I am still getting updates on how happy Whisper is in his new home. I am so very thankful for Rescue Me's help in finding my buddy a more permanent home!

     I am so thankful for Rescue Me! I had been very nervous about finding a good, loving home for our one year old pet Conure, Mango. Within two hours of posting, four people contacted me. It was very obvious all of these folks were bird lovers, and this helped put my mind at ease. The first family who contacted me had two birds and wanted another! They lived minutes away, and my husband and I invited them to meet Mango. It was heartwarming to watch the interaction they had with Mango; she took to them (and their two grandchildren) right away! I knew right then they were the perfect fit. I don't have to worry about Mango getting love and affection, and that means the world to me! Thank you so much!!!

     I posted the two Blue and Gold Macaws for adoption on a Friday at 4:00 PM. By 6:00 PM I had my first interested contact. Saturday, I received my second and third contacts. Monday morning, I had my fourth contact. I was forced to make a quick decision before the interest became too much. I had email and phone contacts with all the potential adopters, and by Monday at noon, I made my decision. All four candidates were highly qualified and very interested. It was truly a difficult decision to make, but in the end, I was very assured that my babies went to a great, forever home. I could not believe the ease of using Rescue Me to get my request out there. I was very impressed with the responses I received. Obviously, you attract a high caliber readership, and I will be sending a donation in the mail to support your great efforts. Thank you for all you do for the animals and those of us who have chosen to share our lives with them.

     I found Rya through Rescue Me while looking for a companion for my kids. I didn't expect the site to be so wonderful. I adopted Rya, a cockatoo, and she is simply wonderful. The owners were magnificent. They came to the house, introduced her to us and also gave us tips on how to handle her. They told us about her likes and dislikes and in all honesty, it was love at first sight. She's great with my kids and everybody in the family. She is definitely spoiled. I recommend adopting. It's the best thing you can do for these animals.

     Sweetie, a Scarlet Macaw, was successfully adopted by a family in a community nearby. He's settling in and he and the family of five are getting to know each other. We needed to place him as we are planning to breed our dog and the idea of a litter of pups and the bird, who very much appreciates personal attention, seemed a bit overwhelming at the moment. Fortunately, all seems to have worked out very well. Thank you for your interest.

     Thank you, Rescue Me! I listed my 15 year old male cockatoo, and within a week I had nearly ten homes from which to choose. To help me find the best fit, I came up with a list of questions that I sent to each one. This really helped narrow the field, and I've settled on a couple that I believe will give LaLa the love and structure he needs to ensure a long term happy home. Thank you!!

     It took approximately a seven hour round trip to adopt this cute, two year old male, white face cockatiel. The previous owners had to give him up for adoption due to the fact that they will have to move sometime in the near future. He was very well taken care of and looked after. They were very sad to see him go, but realized putting him up for adoption was the best thing to do for him. We have used Rescue Me for previous adoptions, and have never had any issues with any of the parakeets or cockatiels we have adopted using the site. We highly recommend using Rescue Me for adoptions or putting up any type of animal for adoption. We will be making a donation to Rescue Me to assist in their worthwhile cause. Thanks again to Rescue Me for making this adoption possible. -Steve and Maddy

     Soda was adopted by a retired vet who had previously adopted a self-plucked, crazy, scared Sun Conure who now is a free flight, basketball player! He also picks up trash, puts pennies in his piggy bank and shakes hands as well as many other adorable tricks. He obviously adores his 'mama'. Soda will enjoy an outside aviary on warm days with his new BFF, and will probably be learning new songs to sing and tricks to amaze and amuse his new friends. Thank you to all of you expressing interest in Soda. And a huge thank you to the wonderful folks at Rescue Me that make this process possible! May God bless you all!

     When I posted our Macaw on Rescue Me, I really did not expect much response. In reality, I could have adopted out several birds. I was quite pleasantly surprised, and most of the respondents were actually serious 'bird people'. He has gone to a good home, where I am sure he will adjust and be happy. Thanks to all those who inquired about him, and those who also offered advice. I will certainly continue to utilize this space when I am looking for any kind of a pet in the future.

     This was an AWESOME site to post my Dove! She had a new home in just a few days. Not only did she get a new home, but I made a new friend. The gentleman that adopted her had a un-assembled aviary. I helped him put it together and my Dove now lives in a 20' L x 10' W x 10' tall home, all to herself. I could not have asked for a better home for her. I even have visiting rights! Rescue Me really works. Rescue Me was the best resource and choice I could have ever made.

     I just want to say how thankful I am to have found Rescue Me! I had a white bellied Caique who I had been fostering for two years. I wanted to keep him forever, but my living situation is changing and I knew I wouldn't be able to take him with me. I knew this was going to happen so about a year ago I really started looking for the perfect home for him. I tried and tried and tried and couldn't find anyone I trusted with Mr. Jingles. I was told about this site and thought 'well, it's my last resort so why not'. Within a day of posting, I got so many wonderful responses from loving, experienced people who wanted to adopt him. After a lot of thinking I decided on a fantastic family who was missing their bird that recently moved out of state with a family member. I had many conversations explaining that it may take a while for him to transition to his new home, etc., told them if his cheeks are puffed be careful because he WILL bite. Well, after a bittersweet goodbye, I am getting regular updates on how well Mr Jingles has adapted! He loves the boys and his new mom. He sits on their shoulders, he has a mansion of a cage with lots of toys and gets a lot of out of cage play time! I couldn't have found him a better home! He is a funny bird who was rescued off the street, dehydrated and almost dead. He deserved to have the best life and now he has it!

     Re-homing our beautiful Sun Conure, Sunny, was a very hard choice to make. We wanted to be sure she went to someone who understood the time, commitment and love it takes to own a bird. We met Cassie through Rescue Me and after emailing back and forth, we knew she was the one for Sunny! Sunny was very nervous when Cassie arrived on Saturday and they didn't get off on the best foot, but I know that once they get to know each other they will be great friends. I'm happy I found this site and can be confident that Sunny is in the best home possible with her new Mom.

     I did find a home for our little Conure. I was so thrilled to find George! He said he's going to keep our Conure. He loves these birds so much. He is so knowledgeable about birds, and how lucky are we that he wanted to come get the little guy! Our bird came with a huge cage, and I was stressing about how to get him and this cage to a new home. But George said he has a big truck that he could use, and volunteered to come down. This was a win-win situation for everyone. I'm impressed by your follow up, too. I just can't tell you how relieved we all are. He's a great little conure, and now hopefully he has a forever home! Thank you, Rescue Me.

I have recently been pulled back into the bird world and foresee having others to be adopted. I want to make sure they have homes from people who realize what a commitment it is to own a bird.

     I had the Grey's home ready with fresh water, veggies, pellets and seed so that when we arrived, he would feel comfortable and explore his environment. I left the cage door open for several hours. He stood at the cage opening (I am always seated adjacent to the cage) I extended my arm and he stepped up and sat with me for the rest of the day. We are bonded now and he affectionately regurgitates his food in my hand. This happened after only one day. He is my companion. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Last night, my new BFF, Albert, came over to take me to my new home. Albert found me on Rescue Me and thought I'd enjoy an open cage home with four other bird friends. Today, he sent a picture to my mom of my new friends and me on top of his blinds. Mom tells me that she received eight phone calls, e-mails, and/or texts about me. I guess I was in demand! She wanted to be sure I went to a good home since she was feeling a little bit of angst about letting me go. I think I'm going to really like it here! My first night I stayed in my cage because I was a little nervous about venturing out. But today - yeah! I got to use my wings and fly around the room! I'm going to miss the Johnsons! But I sure do like Albert so far.

Information about Rescue Me was given to me by my vet, and I consider it a Godsend.

     I found the first bird I wanted, his name is Ike. I kept in touch to show the progress I've made with him. He had another bird named Waldo, and I drove almost eight hours the first time. He met me half way the second time. Thanks to Rescue Me and him for making our forever home complete.

     Nic and Sunny have found a forever home with a wonderful woman that we met today. I was very skeptical when I posted on Rescue Me, but I was desperate. The local rescues were not coming up with any foster homes and I needed to find a home within a month of heading to our winter home where our upstairs neighbors had made it clear from their complaints about minor noise from our ceiling fans (!) that screeching parrots each morning would not be welcome (and it's officially a 'no pet community'--something we hadn't figured into our plans when we bought a year ago). So, I very sadly had to put my birds that I have had for twelve and eight years up for adoption. Their new mom is great, she is a true bird woman, very experienced and they have already settled in well. I feel so good that they have gone to a good loving home where she will spoil them rotten. I have donated to your very wonderful organization, it is so needed. And I have already started looking for a smaller, quieter bird breed (parakeet or cockatiel) on the site near our winter home for the future. Thank you, Jeff Gold, for your wonderful Rescue Me site!

     It was a pleasure working with Cynthia to adopt this little girl. We couldn't get together until after I got off work, and I drove an hour. She was more than willing to meet and make this happen. Pearl was a little scared, as can be expected. My wife stayed home this morning to be with her a little longer. I didn't get home with her until 9:30 last night. My wife just called to tell me Pearl is singing and whistling and came down to eat and drink. We are so happy to have her. Our daughter was very excited to see her this morning. Big thanks to this organization, Rescue Me. I wish we could help with other birds as well, and who knows, maybe in the future we can adopt once again.

     I hated to have to re-home my beloved Sun Conure, but due to life circumstances, I could no longer give him th time and attention he deserved. Within 24 hours of posting him on the Rescue Me site, I had several interested parties in my home state. I was able to be selective, interview potential adoptive owners and choose the very best home possible with amazing, exprienced, new parents. I had been searching for a new home for months without success. Rescue Me was the best resource! Should I ever get a new pet, I will use Rescue Me to adopt. Thanks for the great service!

     Thank you to everyone who responded about Charlie. There are a ton of you who are interested in African Greys and have great experience in providing good homes for them.

Having visited with his new family, I am confident he is somewhere where he will be mentally challenged, well nourished, and happy. Thank you Jeff. What a great experience for me and Charlie. Rescue Me is an awesome service.

     After my female parakeet died last year, I decided not to get another bird. But the male (whom I'd rescued off Craigslist three years ago) seemed lonely, even though he chirped happily when I was near or on the phone. I'm gone a great deal, so someone suggested I try Rescue Me. I had a response within two hours. I was a little apprehensive, but took him to the person's house and was delighted with the set-up, two cockatiels and two parakeets. There was space between their two cages for Chirps to get used to all the new sights and sounds in his own digs for a couple of weeks. The new owner is clearly experienced and loves birds, so even though I miss him already, I know he'll be happier there. Thank you for connecting us!

     I sadly had to look for a new home for my JoJo. A delightful Sun Conure. Unfortunately, the company my husband worked for closed its doors and he took a different job with different hours. JoJo was left alone for several hours a day and did not get the attention that Sun's really need. This situation was not going to change anytime soon, leaving us feeling guilty for not spending more time with him. With the help of Rescue Me, we found a new home for JoJo within a week. The family he went too had two children, one of whom I understand loves to watch JoJo dance and bob his head. The process was easy and quick as were the results! Thank you!!

     Took a five hour trip to adopt two, young,sweet parakeets. One is a male,the other is a female.The previous owners were having difficulty caring for these two parakeets due to medical issues within the family. They did the best they could and these two parakeets were well cared for considering their circumstances.The trip was well worth our time and effort.They are acclimating very well to their new surroundings and have other feathered friends to coexist with.We have adopted other parakeets and cockatiels using the Rescue Me site and have never had any issues with any of the birds we have adopted. We highly recommend the Rescue Me site for those who have to give up an animal or are looking to adopt a animal of any type. As usual, we will be making a donations to the Rescue Me organization to assist in their endevenors. Thanks again, to the Rescue Me group. -Steve and Maddy

     I am disabled and retired. My youngest daughter lives with me. She suffers with Progressive Multiple Sclerosis and is mostly home bound. Annie has had finches and parakeets for the past twenty years and they have been a wonderful source of companionship and peace. We went and purchased two baby parakeets and they have brought her the most joy, however, with the progression of her disease it has been more and more difficult. After a long talk, we decided to post them and all their supplies on Rescue Me. Through Rescue Me, God has sent us the nicest couple, and as much as this experience has brought sadness to Annie. It has also brought her a special peace knowing they are going to the nicest of homes. Thank you Jeff and all who make Rescue Me available. Sincerely, Tom and Annie

     Just wanted to say thank you to Rescue Me. My birds got adopted to a very good home! I had just about given up hope, and all of a sudden I got a call from a very nice man. He came over and looked at the birds, and we had a nice long discussion. I felt very comfortable that they were going to a very good home. Thank you again for this site, I am so happy and relieved that they could go to a good home, I am confident that they are being well cared for. This is a very secure site with a lot of security and safety protections in place. I would use it again if I ever need to place an animal. Thank you again. -Lisa

     Friday night, I found one of our parakeets, Cielo, lifeless at the bottom of the cage. After we mindfully removed and buried her, her friend Pana began calling out. This continued the following day and I was torn between continuing to support the bird mill industry and taking care of sweet Pana. My friend knows that all my canine friends are adopted and told me to search for a bird rescue/adoption. Twenty-four hours later, Ghost and Volare joined Pana in the large, spacious cage. Irene told me she had gotten the birds as a gift as was allergic. Pana and Ghost quickly became close often leaving Volare off to the side alone. Now I'm wondering if we need to adopt a friend for her! Thank you, Rescue Me.

     I adopted these three cockatiels today. The previous owners had to give them up for adoption due to allergy issues in the family. They are a very nice family who took very very good care of these 'tiels. It was approximately a 6 hour round trip, and was a very worthwhile trip for us. They will fit in perfectly here with other cockatiels I have adopted using Rescue Me. We have used this site in the past for other bird adoptions and have never had any issues with any of the birds we have adopted. We highly recommend this site to anyone who must give up an animal for adoption or is looking to adopt an animal. As usual,we will be making a donation to help support their cause.

     Thank you, thank you, Rescue Me. I had a cockatoo that I couldn't keep. I used Rescue Me and it was wonderful. My family was sad to see Zeus go, however we all knew it was the thing to do for him. The new mommy and I emailed back and forth, plus telephone conversations. I plan on using this organization again when it's time. I believe it is better to adopt than going to breeders or pet stores (that's my opinion).

     Adopted this very nice cockatiel today ( Sunday) The previous owners had to give him up due to family issues and did the right thing by putting him up for adoption. He was well taken care by them and I have no issues with the care they gave him.It was approx. an eight hour round trip to get him and was well worth the time in doing so. We have used Rescue Me for other adoptions (cockatiels and parakeets) and have never had any issues with any of the birds we have adopted.

     I met the most beautiful parakeets, gently trained and used to humans. It is easy to look after them, and I am very grateful to the previous owner who spent time to teach me how to be a good bird parent. I'm so glad my mom didn't buy them in the shop, not only to offer these birds another house, but also because they are such wonderful animals who are so sweet and funny. They have made me so happy with their good manners. Thank you Rescue Me, and thank you Mr. Mark (their owner). All the best, Allegra (Age 10)

     I received an email last week from a woman that lives hours away from me that showed interest in my seven year old, fancy parakeet. We emailed back and forth and finally she said that she would take Jack and a companion bird I had not posted without seeing a photo of them. She came to my home over the weekend and was thrilled to see the birds. She talked about her past experiences with birds as did her husband and how she had trained her cockatiel to sing/whistle a song. They just had such a positive response to the birds and were already planning how to care for them (clipping wings, etc.), asking about their diet, vitamins, etc., that I knew they were right for my Jack (and Jill). I have already emailed her and she loves Jack as much as I did. He sings to her and sits on her fingers already and is becoming quite acclimated to his new environment. I am so happy that I posted the bird with Rescue Me and that someone who truly loves birds took mine to her home.

     I posted my bird on Rescue Me, and, within a day, I had several people contact me. One lady came out to my home to spend several hours with our bird. They really connected and it was a perfect fit. I have since contacted the new owner to find everyone adjusting well and our bird enjoying his new home. I can't thank you enough for your help to locate a great home for our pet that we were unable to take with us. She didn't have an email but did take the information down to make a donation so this website can continue to make connections such as the one we made.

     We rescued/rehomed this cute 'Tiel. It was about a nine hour round trip to get him, but it was well worth it. The previous owner could not properly care for him due to personal reasons and did the right thing by putting him up on Rescue Me. He was very well taken care of by the previous owner, who was doing the best she could. We have used Rescue Me for previous adoptions and rescues and have never had an issue with the rescues and this site. We highly recommend this site for anyone who is looking to put up an animal for adoption/rescues or looking to adopt or rescue any animal in need..
