Rescue Bird/Adoption Centres

There are many birds wanting and indeed deserving a new and loving forever home. Have you ever thought of Adopting.

PLEASE THINK VERY CAREFULLY BEFORE ADOPTING
Not everyone has the time or could in fact do this. It is very hard work, takes a lot of time, patience and love. Each Bird comes with its own very different baggage and you need to be absolutely sure that you are able to handle this.

It can be very hard work
It can be very heartbreaking
Chances are you will be bitten
The bird will NOT trust you

BUT

The hard work is very rewarding
The heartbreak will soon turn to admiration
You will recover from a bite, (and even a handtame bird with no baggage can bite)
The bird will learn to trust you and LOVE you.

If you are thinking of adopting then please think very carefully, talk to your local rescue centre and make sure you are the right person to take this on. Theres no shame is saying "I can't do this". You can always join our family here who are not experts but we are bird lovers, and some of us have rescue birds, so why not join up and talk to us BEFORE adopting.

They do some marvellous work and are always looking for foster homes.

Re: Rescue Bird/Adoption Centres

For anyone in Alberta Canada here is the website for a bird rescue.

http://www.parrotrescue.ca/

They are also looking for volunteers even if you have little or no experience with birds.

Re: Rescue Bird/Adoption Centres

For everyone in Michigan, here's a shelter to check out:

http://www.knapp-time.com

It's a big time commitment to adopt from there, but so is owning a bird in general so I think it works out nicely.

Also the website is a little hard to navigate, but you'll get the idea anyway.

Re: Rescue Bird/Adoption Centres

Meghan originally posted this site in another thread, but after having a quick look through thought it should be here.

It has a lot of rules and regulations, but if you want a bird badly you will gladly meet all of the rules without question.

Thanks Meghan.

Re: Rescue Bird/Adoption Centres

Feathered Friends Forever is the largest Parrot/Companion Bird rescue in the US, and is located in Harlem, GA (about 20 miles from Augusta, where they play the Masters). They have over 600 resident birds, and are a military deployment facility to keep birds while their owners are serving overseas, as well as a Hurricane Evacuation Route parrot shelter. If you have time, take a look at the page for more information:

www.featheredfriendsforever.org/

Thanks, in advance, for your time.

Re: Rescue Bird/Adoption Centres

I'm all for adopting a bird needing a home, but by the time you meet the requirements of some of the agencies your past the cost of a new bird. Class attendance, several trips to meet the bird, home inspections, etc. It gets too cumbersome and turns off those who would otherwise help...

Re: Rescue Bird/Adoption Centres

All these are in Canada! I live on the MS Gulf Coast. I can give experienced care to birds and want to help some with a loving home. Does anyone know of a rescue organization here?
