IOWA PARROT RESCUE
We are in need of homes for a large number of parrots who aren't people-pets. Some are wild-caught imports that were never tame, some are victims of abuse or neglect. Some came from drug busts, hoarders, parrot-mills, and smugglers. Many of then are in pairs. They don't need or want the daily socialization that most parrots require; they just need to be cared for. This means they aren't great companions, but it also means they're much less time-consuming: give them a large clean cage with lots of toys and perches, keep it clean, and watch them be parrots.
This group includes mostly amazons and macaws so some available space and a tolerance for noise is necessary.
