ARRR you ready for Talk Like a Pirate Day? (PAGE 3)

Adopt a parrot

Undead monkeys like the one kept by Captain Barbossa in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl are rather hard to come by. So how about a more traditional pirate pet?

The Oasis Sanctuary in southeastern Arizona is a safe harbor for feathered friends without a home. Oasis takes in birds whose owners are no longer able to give them the care they need, or who think that taking care of Polly is as easy as giving him a cracker.

The sanctuary does not offer birds for adoption, but it will help to put committed parrot pals in touch with those who do. Otherwise, you can sponsor a bird at the sanctuary or support them through other means, such as buying souvenirs from their gift shop or CafePress store.
