OHS Pet of the Week: Brocco (and friends!)

Meet Brocco (A129611), a two year old male budgie. He and his other budgie friends are at the OHS, looking for new homes.

Friendly and affectionate, budgies can provide endless hours of pleasure and companionship. Most budgies require training to learn to talk, but even without words, they can charm you. Budgies will generally live between six and twelve years.

Before adopting a budgie, consider the following:

  • Budgies need daily attention and interaction.
  • Budgies need nutritious food, fresh water and a clean habitat.
  • All household members should understand how to handle and care for a budgie, and they should all be as eager as you to welcome a budgie into the family.
To learn more about budgies as pets, or to adopt Brocco, contact the Ottawa Humane Society at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or at
