Considering rehoming 2 Amazon yellow naps

it starts with the threads title, due to health, life and personal reasons im considering rehoming, i thought it might be better for the birds, so i looked on google for parrot rescue and its one extreme to another, one end they dont even have a place just various fosters, who care for the birds until a good home/buyer is found, i could do that,

the other end is parrot club med, but their entry fee is 1000s out of my budget

is there a safe, down to earth way to try to rehome parrots where its about getting them into a loving hopfully forever home, i will not just dump them, i would need a lot of screening to trust and have faith before giving them away,
thanks for info and opinions.

Re: Considering rehoming 2 Amazon yellow naps

Great point above as it helps regarding what resources are in your area.

One of the most commonly missed resources is one's Avian Professional. Your Avian Vet has a known history of your Parrot(s) and commonly receives or is aware of individuals they know (other clients) in search of a well cared for Parrot(s).

I’m sorry you’re facing this decision. Please research and consider your available options. Unfortunately some rescues are only profiteers in disguise. I hope you find a fantastic forever home for your friends.

As mentioned above, your location would be helpful. There are good people out there too, just a matter of finding them.

Re: Considering rehoming 2 Amazon yellow naps

Iíve come to believe that species specific Facebook groups are often the best place to find a home for parents, especially high demand birds like Amazonís that need specific things from their owners. I would look for Amazon specific Parrot groups, and come up with a list of requirements for your new home and questions for them, and a list of references you want them to provide.

yRe: Considering rehoming 2 Amazon yellow naps

thanks all, im basically in central florida, im not going to give them to any rehoming group, the ones i did look into are charling adotpers high fees while doing halfassed what i can do myself better safer, im going to give them away free to the right home.



im not going to pay a parrot club med some ridiculous high fee, its like a horder who found a way for others to support their habit.


im not going to go with a first time parrot owner, while not wild these guys do need a person who is parrot savvy,


i dont do facebook, nothing wrong with it or me just its not an option,


again thanks

We can make it right for these two little ones!
