Gauteng

Hi, Gauteng residents!

Here are some of the parrots in our system that are currently in foster care and seeking their new forever families. 

You can start by completing an adoption application (see buttons below). We try to avoid inter-provincial travel unless we really struggle to find a home in the original region, so this page is dedicated to applicants in Gauteng only.

Please kindly note that we are a volunteer-run organisation so it might take some time for us to get to your application, especially because we are currently trying to work through a backlog that has occurred as well.

Spotlight on: Abe

Indian Ringneck Parakeet
📍Donkerhoek, Gauteng
 
Abe was surrendered to us with the help of another NPO, Laat Waai Papagaai.
He unfortunately was not in a great state when he came to us and was presenting signs of self-mutilation. Abe had his second checkup with Dr Peck at Glenwood Bird and Animal Clinic recently and we are happy to report that the lesions on his wings have healed well and there are promising indications that his flight feathers are growing back. This is good news as it was originally thought at his first checkup that he had been clipped so badly that he might not be able to fly again. Abe does have calcium and Vit A deficiency due to a high seed diet and has been treated with boosters and supplements. Due to the calcium deficiency, his beak is very brittle and care needs to be taken that he does not injury himself with a fall or as such. His anxiety has lessened to a degree thanks to him being on medication. Abe doesn’t have panic attacks anymore when we work inside his cage or just stand near him. Also he has started to come out of his cage and hang around on the outside.
If you have previously submitted an application, please send an email to his adoption adviser, Danielle, at danielle@cheekybeaks.org.za and let her know that you’re interested in this special boy. Alternatively, follow the link provided at the top of this page to submit your application. 
All usual processes and procedures apply.
