SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

They are longtime residents of a Mid-Michigan home, but now their owner is being told she has to move.

The question is, what will she do with all of the birds?

The birds aren’t just any kind of pets. Most of them aren’t even from this country.

“Most of my parrots I’ve had for 30 years or more,” said Sherry Moon, exotic pet owner.

She has housed a wide range of animals from snakes to iguanas and even macaws. Now she is in need of a home herself after the city placed a notice on her door saying it couldn’t be occupied any longer.

She is struggling to find a new home for 20 exotic birds.

“I made a few phone calls. I asked a few people for help, but when they say 48 hours, it’s 48 hours,” she said.

The birds may be finding a new home very soon.

“We had a citizen come up to us and she had stated, ‘I assume you’re here for me,’” said Joaquin Guerrero, with the Saginaw Animal Control.

Guerrero was passing by looking for stray pit bulls when Moon approached him saying she needed a place to house her birds.

Although Guerrero couldn’t take them to animal control or the Saginaw Zoo, he was able to track down a local pet store willing to help.

“I then approached them at Ocean Odyssey and they said, ‘you know, I think we can figure out a place where we can place the birds temporarily,’” Guerrero said.

Now Moon is able to work out an agreement with Odyssey that allows her to keep the animals there until she gets back on her feet.

“I have a temporary place for my birds and I am so grateful for that. I can’t even tell you how grateful,” she said.
