Process & Requirements

Application

Bird experience is preferred but not necessary; however it is mandatory for adopting our larger birds. You will be expected to fill out our application, participate in a home visit assessment, agree to educational sessions, and visit the sanctuary to bond with the bird. Once approved as an adopter, and we agree that you and the bird are right for each other, you will be expected to sign an adoption contract. We provide you with a handy checklist to follow when making a parrot a member of your household. Ideas range from cage, food, health, and safety to playtime, sleepytime, and cuddletime. details>> Ready to apply?
