Candidates should be aware the following Pre- Qualifications

Qualifications for Adoption:

• We recommend that all adopters be the minimum age of 27 years.
• You must allow us to conduct home visits prior to being introduced to an available parrot for adoption. (No exceptions)
• Reside in your residence for at least four months.
• We will Never place any bird with any home that houses any breed or mix breed of Terrier dog or dachshund dogs. These two breeds have an instinctive gene that will make them eventually kill parrots. There’s over a decade of documented proof of bird tragedies. Because of this proven fact we will not place any bird with any home that houses theses breeds. (Sorry)
• We will not adopt a bird to a 3rd party. (No gifting of parrots)
• The Primary adopter must work under forty two hours a week.
• We won’t be able to place a bird in any household that currently has over six indoor pets. Our Parrots need a nourishing environment with a regular routine.
• We will conduct one interview at a time, deciding on each person and or family or situation will be the ideal home for all adoptable birds. Please be advised that some birds have a background were they have special needs or fears of certain animals or humans. In this situation, we will only place a bird within the needs of the bird first.
• We also recommend you select a God Parent prior to committing to adopt our available parrot. If you do not have a God Parent for your newly adoptive bird we require you sign an agreement that we are grandfathered in as the God parent for your new bird incase of any emergency.

• We also recommend that you introduce your new bird to you bird sitter 30 days before any vacation. In addition, the sitter should handle and inter act with your new parrot for a total of at least 30 mins and two visits.
• We will expect you to be honest about your budget. If you decide that you want to adopt a Parrot in need of a new stable home. Please be truthful with us. if you can afford the care and vetting required for any animal. *We are happy to work with some low income situations, for some of our smaller orphaned parrots.
• Again; It is highly unlikely that we will place any bird with anyone who currently owns any breed of Terrier dog or Dachshund dog.( We will make exceptions of these two breeds of dogs upon the home visit)  (These breeds have a poor history of being friendly to parrots)
• In addition; It is unlikely that we will place a second chance parrot in a home that currently house’s more than four parrots, and or more than three children under the age of sixteen.

They will need a routine household, with a calm environment. This will help them acclimate to their new home with minimal future behavioral problems.

Considering being a Foster Home?

We are always in need of experienced foster homes for orphaned parrots.

Please be aware that we require stricter regulations for our foster homes than our standard adoption application.

If you strongly feel that you can offer one of our parrots a good home under these restrictions, then please fill out our adoption application and send it to us as soon as you can.

Please be patience, try to restrain from advertising to adopt a bird until we have had a chance to meet you in person.
