FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the questions we are frequently asked:

  • What is the adoption process?
    • First, you come in and visit the birds.  We always say that the bird chooses its person.  In order to adopt a bird, you must form a bond with that bird (be able to handle the bird, get it in and out of the cage, have it step up for you).
    • Once the bond is forming, we ask you to fill out our application, which is available at our facility if you ask any of the volunteers
    • Once the application has been filled out and you have been coming in to visit the bird, we will set up a home visit.  One of the volunteers will be in touch to set that up and come out and see where you intend to keep the bird as well as go over safety and answer any questions you may have.  Our goal is to assist you in providing the best environment for the bird and to be able to answer any and all questions you may have.
    • Upon an approved home visit, we will then set up the time for you to come pay the adoption fee and take home your new feathered friend!
  • Do you ship?
    • We absolutely do NOT ship birds.  We work locally and adopt out to the surrounding areas.  We have volunteers from as far away as 2-3 hours from our facility who are more than happy to drive a ways to do home visits.  If you show the effort coming in to make the bond, we will make the effort to do the home visits!\
  • What is the adoption fee?
    • Our adoption fees range from $15 for the budgies to $600 for the Macaws.  All of our birds (with the exception of some budgies and cockatiels) will come with their cage and toys.  All birds will come with a bag of our mix of food.
  • Do you accept relinquishments?
    • We will never turn a bird away.  Unfortunately, sometimes we will need to have a short waiting list for some species of birds.  This usually is not more than a few weeks.  The best thing to do is to give us a call during our open hours.
  • When are you open?
    • We are open Thursday and Friday 12-7 and Saturday and Sunday 12-5
  • Do you accept donations?
    • We absolutely do!  Without donations, we would not be able to sustain our operations.  We appreciate any and all donations!
