Denver has a damaged wing and will never fly but he loves life and has a really sweet personality. He has settled well with us here, whistling and chattering happily when we are with him.
Ideally we would prefer Denver to be rehomed with other birds in an aviary allowing a larger living space. Though we do need to be aware potential bullying could occur from other birds, so we would be happy for him to be on his own. If Denver is kept as a solo bird, he will need some bonding time daily as they are social birds and regular rotated toys to keep occupied. Daily interaction can form a very strong bond between you and your bird.
Denver will make a wonderful pet who loves company.

All our animals are under a full rehabilitation programme involving behavioural assessments and monitoring. This helps us achieve the best possible match.
We have experienced and knowledgeable staff on hand that spend time with each animal and are therefore able to give you an insight into their temperament and suitability to your lifestyle.
We have a purpose-built area that simulates a home garden environment and provides adoptees with the opportunity meet and greet their potential pet on a one-to-one basis. Similarly over in the cattery we have an adoption room where you can play and give your potential new cat or kitten lots of fuss!
We recommend that you come back and visit your new pet as much as you can to ensure it is the right one for you.
When Fred came to the shelter he was in a very sorry state, but thankfully through care and rehabilitation he made a full recovery and went on to find his forever home where he is living the best life.
