Meet Sugar Cane
Meet Sugar Cane!
Sugar Cane recently came into our care with her friend Malak. They are looking for forever homes with families that are able to provide them with plenty of enrichment and room to roam. Birds of all kinds are a big commitment as they require specific care and budgies are no different. These lovely birds can make great pets for bird loving people and that is exactly what we are looking for. These budgies are a bit shy and hand their new families will need to be patient and bird experienced to help them gain confidence and become comfortable with being handled. Our budgies love to sing and enjoy listening to the radio. Adopters with bird experience are preferred. If you’re interested in these intelligent birds, please call the shelter or submit your application by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
