Qualified Sanctuaries/Homes Sought for Birds



Legal Proceedings Still Underway
Associated Humane Societies Looks for Bird Sanctuaries

The owner of the 425 birds rescued in March from horrid conditions at a Belleville home has officially signed over all the birds to Associated Humane Societies, now clearing the way for their adoptions by highly qualified sanctuaries and individuals.

Court proceedings against former owner Ewa Matczak, who must answer to formal complaints lodge by the New Jersey SPCA, are still underway. Read the complete story.

According to Associated Humane Societies Executive Director Roseann Trezza, the hybrid birds, including canaries, parakeets, finches, parrots, cockatiels and conures, will only be adopted to sanctuaries and some individuals who can prove they are properly licensed to own and care for them with compassion and expertise. AHS staffers will extensively interview each potential adopter.

“We are looking only for those who can offer these birds the respect, care and space they didn't have before,” she said.

Sanctuary proprietors and experienced New Jersey-licensed bird owners interested in adopting any of the birds should contact Associated Humane Societies Tinton Falls General Manager Bruce Sanchez at 732-922-0100 to begin the process.

But, until the birds have all found the best homes, WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP! The Society still needs the invaluable assistance that the public has been giving since the birds were first rescued.

Dedicated volunteers are still needed to help clean cages, feed and water the birds. Volunteers can schedule their own times during operating hours, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a week.

Supporters are also asked to donate:
* Fresh fruits and vegetables
* Dried fruits
* All types of bird seed, parrot chow, etc.
* Monetary donations to pay for laboratory and other medical expenses

Donations can be dropped off at the Tinton Falls Shelter, 2960 Shafto Road during operating hours. To volunteer to help care for the birds while at the shelter, call 732-922-0100.

“Hopefully the long and sad saga of these beautiful birds can now have a happy ending. We hope that the support we have received from animal lovers in the past still continues until each of these birds has a new home,” Ms. Trezza said.
