Birds at Preuss Pets

To offer the best opportunity for a successful and rewarding pet relationship - adoptions of birds, small animals, and reptiles are being done on an appointment basis. The live bird, small animal, and reptile areas are currently otherwise roped off to the public. From the time they hatch, until they join your family - and beyond - our commitment to birds is like no other!

Our Commitment to You and Your Bird

Birds are highly intelligent, social animals. Starting from the time they hatch, when we hand-feed them, we teach them bonding with positive direction and inspiration.
