Are you thinking about fostering a parrot? Read on to find out about the benefits of becoming a foster home:
- Fostering a parrot is a great way to get your feet wet if you are considering adopting. If you have never owned a parrot before then you would need to learn about parrot behaviors and how to care for parrots. Some types of parrots are not suitable for every home, but all parrots need a caretaker willing to commit to a lifetime of caring for them. Fostering is a great way to learn what type of parrot fits into your household and whether or not you’d be able to take on the responsibilities of caring for a parrot for many years.
- Fostering a parrot can make a big difference in the life of a parrot waiting for a forever home. Many times, a parrot comes from a home where it was neglected and it no longer knows how to socialize. Foster homes provide a parrot with proper care while getting them reacquainted with human interaction.
- Fostering helps parrot rescues. Foster homes become acquainted with a bird’s unique personality and behaviors, and they can share their knowledge with prospective adopters. This knowledge allows adopters to make an informed decision on which bird best fits their lifestyle and expectations.
