San Diego Animal Rescue Adopts Over 50 Birds from an Overburdened Family and Places Them in New Homes
San Diego Humane Society police assisted in the safe removal of 53 pet birds from a California house, including lovebirds, finches, pigeons, and doves.
With the help of the San Diego Humane Society, lovebirds are receiving a second chance at happiness (SDHS).
Humane law enforcement officials from SDHS assisted a family overwhelmed by the amount of pet birds in their care on Wednesday, according to the California-based shelter. After recognizing they wouldn't be able to provide sufficient care for all of the birds, the family turned to SDHS for aid.
Lovebirds, finches, pigeons, and doves were among the 53 birds carefully taken from the property. The majority of the birds were discovered flying freely around their old home's living room. SDHS officers brought the critters to the shelter on the SDHS's San Diego campus after securely containing the birds.
Following their arrival at the shelter, all of the birds were given a brief medical examination and time to decompress. The birds were discovered to be in good health, and many of the animals were medically and behaviorally vetted for adoption within days of arriving at the shelter.
Almost all of the birds were adopted by Valentine's Day, with 50 of the 53 birds finding new homes by the 14th.
