The Detroit Animal Welfare Group in Michigan took in hundreds of budgies dropped off by the son of an animal hoarder. The birds had been kept in one room and several are in rough shape.
The first day, 497 budgies were dropped off. An additional 339 budgies were dropped off the following day.
The budgies are currently being quarantined and will be looked at by veterinarians. A few bird rescue groups have come forward to assist in caring for the budgies. You can read more here.
If you are in the area and looking to adopt a budgie, please keep these little ones in mind.
