The San Diego Humane Society helped the overwhelmed owner of more than four dozen pet birds Wednesday, stepping in to remove the animals from the owner’s home in Bay Ho.

The owner called for help with the 53 birds — lovebirds, finches, pigeons and doves — that had been living in a room, Humane Society officials said. The owner will not be charged for the assist.

“The nice thing with this is that the owners reached out, and we were able to help,” Humane Society spokeswoman Nina Thompson said.

Staffers took the birds to the Humane Society’s San Diego campus, where they are receiving medical attention.

They all appear to be in good health, the agency said. They will be made available for adoption once they are cleared medically and behaviorally.

A few eggs found in the home were paired to their family to the best of the caregiver’s ability in hopes they will hatch and be healthy, Thompson said.

The large number of birds rescued Wednesday was not the local agency’s biggest bird case. In 2019, the Humane Society rescued more than 80 birds from a Rancho Bernardo apartment.

The organization can help pet owners who need assistance in caring for their animals. Anyone who needs help can contact the San Diego Humane Society at (619) 299-7012 (and then press 1). Go to sdhumane.org/supportservices to learn more.
