The New Hampshire Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has more than cats and dogs looking for families. It has many small animals that are hoping to find homes in time for the holidays. Like Kiwi and Cloud, a pair of parakeets that are hoping to remain together. Parakeets have charming personalities, they sing and whistle and are delightful entertainment for bird lovers. They are very social animals and feel most comfortable in groups of two or more. Parakeets have an average lifespan of more than 10 years and require a roomy cage with a variety of toys to keep them entertained. For information, visit the small animal page at
