Parrots and other exotic birds are charming creatures with strong emotions and superior intelligence. However, they are also considered the most demanding and misunderstood companion animals, according to A Helping Wing Parrot Rescue. Many times owners find themselves giving up birds once the commitment to bird ownership has become a challenge. This is where bird rescue groups step in and why they take advantage of exhibiting at the Super Pet Expo.
The Super Pet Expo offered great exposure to two New Jersey rescue groups to showcase adoptable birds and educate the public about the proper care and daily activity requirements of birds.
The exhibit booths were overflowing with visitors admiring the adoptable birds and asking questions. Visitors were given a chance to see these beautiful creatures up close and interact with them.
The sad fact is that many times people don’t understand fully the commitment it takes to own a bird. Their life spans can be long, and if not provided with the proper housing and interaction, they can bite and become destructive. This is when the rescue groups step in to recover the bird. They work with these birds to show them that people can be trusted with their care.
