Special NeedsSenegal Parrot
Hi, my name is Jesse. I'm a 20 year old Senegal Parrot of unknown gender. I'm a timid bird at first, but with time, consistency and lots of good things, I have the potential to be a lovely family member. Despite my initial shyness, I have a lovely disposition. I love to vocalize and shred toys, and if you think you heard a tiny kitten meow, you're not crazy-it was me! At 20 years old, I am almost middle-aged. In the wild, Senegal Parrots live 30 years plus, but it's not unheard of for us to live to 50 years in captivity! That means I have many years of love and entertainment left to give. I'd love an experienced medium to large bird owner that has the time to spend with me every day, encouraging me to come out of my cage (and out of my shell) to show off my true personality. My previous owner loved me dearly, but could not spend enough time with me and as a result we were both rather unhappy. As much as it broke their heart, I was given up in the hopes that I would find a home that can shower me with all the love and attention I deserve.
If you think you're ready to spoil a bird like me, call (650) 340-7022 x354 to speak with the Exotics Department and set up an appointment to meet with me. Just ask for Jesse, ID# A843564.
Unless otherwise indicated, adoptable animals are located at our Lantos Center for Compassion at 1450 Rollins Road, Burlingame, CA 94010. Our hours are weekdays from 11am-7pm and weekends from 11am-6pm (closed major holidays). Interested adopters must arrive at least 1 hour before close.
We do our best to update our listings regularly, but we can’t guarantee every animal you see is still available. It’s also typical for us to have animals who haven’t had their photos taken yet, so you are welcome to visit our adoption center and have a look around!
To check on an animal's adoption status, please call 650-340-7022 during normal business hours to speak with an adoption counselor or 650-340-7022 ext. 823 anytime to hear a recording of our available animals (updated each morning). Emails will be returned as soon as possible, but please allow up to 48 hours during busy adoption periods like weekends.
