To rehome birds, A-Parrot Rescue has an investigative process in effect in order to find
good homes for birds. Our function is to "adopt" birds out to qualified adults.

BIRD / PARROT ADOPTION BASICS
A-Parrot to A-Flamingo's policies are in effect totally for the benefit of the birds released into
our care. If you are looking for a new bird by the end of the week, our adoption process will
take a little longer than that to interview you and get your application mailed to you.
You will be "applying to adopt a bird". We reserve the right to turn down inappropriate
(in our opinion) applications. Pls. read over this website. If you have a problem with any
of our info, then it is best to find another rescue to deal with. We are looking for experienced
parrot owners. If you truly are, I am sure you will undersand the reason why we have certain
meet the actual adopter prior to the final approval of one's application with A-Parrot Rescue.
BPP is closed as of June 2007. Our same rescue team has been (and is continuing to find) new
homes for unwanted birds.
A-Parrot to A-Flamingo is also privileged to have a page listed on Petfinder.com
Our current adoptable birds, pictures and bird personalities, are advertised there. Feel free
to keep checking our page there for bird updates...
Our parrot rescue is run out of our private home. We are not set up like a pet shop.
See our Webpage: "OUR HOME RESCUE" before you make an appointment to visit us.
A-Parrot to A-Flamingo Rescue volunteers to help the Brecksville Animal Control
Department when issues arise regarding unwanted parrots or other pet birds in our area.
OUR ADOPTION PROCESS SUMMARY:
(2) A-Parrot to A-Flamingo Rescue does detailed screening of qualified Adopters.
Our Board has the right to approve or refuse any application submitted to us.
(3) A-Parrot Rescue is not set up like a pet shop. We are not open for public "bird tours".
Visiting appointments can be made AFTER an application has been approved by our Board
of Directors, usually a fast process.
(4) Drop-off and pick up of birds is in Brecksville, Ohio ONLY.
(5) A-Parrot to A-Flamingo will accept most older and problem birds, so we are looking
for experienced parrot owners to adopt our parrots to, someone who has lived with a similar
species of parrot and who honestly understands parrot "issues or quirks".
(This Email Chat is not our actual application). We explain our adoption policies further in
these emails too. Applications can be mailed out to potential adopters after we
"meet you" via email first.
Our email interview will explain further.
parrot neglect and suffering, offering advice to bird owners to assist them in creating
a good environment for their pet bird. A-Parrot's goal is to promote safe and humane
care of companion parrots and smaller pet birds and to rehome unwanted older healthy
parrots that would possibly be euthanized because of their age.
To provide a safe haven with top quality care for the birds/parrots released into
our care prior to our locating good homes for them. We are a "No Kill"
organization. This pertains to our acceptance of older healthy birds in need of
a new home.
DO YOU WANT TO ADOPT A PARROT????
*IMPORTANT: A-Parrot Rescue does require a paper copy of a proof receipt showing
that you have owned a similar species of parrot in the recent past. Why??? This is the
Internet, and we really do not know the people who are contacting us to adopt a bird. This is
proof our parrots are going to an experienced parrot owner. Several types of proof
See the tab: "ADOPT BIRD" for more info.
INFO FOR FIRST-TIME PARROT OWNERS
if you are undecided about what species to of bird to obtain. We may have some website
referrals for you also. A-Parrot to A-Flamingo encourages every person to do their
research on bird care and parrot species info BEFORE choosing a parrot as a pet. Petfinder.com
also has quite a bit of info on their site.
Please do not obtain a parrot (or any pet) without first finding out more about their
quirks and care. It is also important that everyone makes sure the species of parrot
they are considering would in all reality be suitable for their home, apartment space, family, and lifestyle.
(these are older birds we get in...), obtaining a macaw, amazon, or cockatoo as your first bird
is not a good idea. Also, these species are NOT apartment pets, as the potential noise level will
cause neighbor complaints, and large parrot species may not be good around small children (Any
parrot can bite…hard.)
If you have never owned a parrot before, most probably you would not be able to adopt one
from A-Parrot to A-Flamingo, Inc. There are other bird rescue orgnizations that may be able
to assist you, though. Every bird rescue oganization has its own adoption requirements.
NEW POTENTIAL BIRD OWNERS SHOULD DO THEIR RESEARCH FIRST!
Bird care classes are very helpful and informative for new bird owners. Some rescue organizations
hold these classes, A-Parrot does not. Bird care is very different from caring for a dog or a cat.
New bird owners should do their research on parrot species and parrot care before deciding to
contact a rescue organization. Visit pet shops and bird shows to check out species. Listen to
how loud the parrot may be. Talk to bird owners, visit bird care forums on the Internet.
Unfortunately A-Parrot can only adopt out Parrots to experienced parrot owners. If you are
new to birds, you may want to check out other parrot rescue organizations than ours.
See our page ADOPT A BIRD which explains A-Parrot's adoption qualifications.

REFERRALS AND OUR CLIENTS
vets, other bird owners who can attest to our sincerity in finding just the right home for any
bird released to our care. Our clients have chosen and trusted A-Parrot to find a home for birds
they can no longer care for.
FREE PARROTS, CHEAP BIRDS ?
anyone who runs an animal rescue organization. A-Parrot to A-Flamingo Rescue has live animals that
must be fed on a daily basis.
All pet owners must be able to afford the animals in their care. Also, a rescue organization
MUST be able to afford the cost of caring for animals left in their care for re-homing.
Macaws eat a lot of expensive seed and pellets, plus fresh fruit, nuts and veggies! Multiple that by the
number of birds left in a rescue organization's care! Owning and rescuing parrots is a very expensive
This is the reason why A-Parrot to A-Flamingo Rescue needs to request rehoming donations for
drop off and pick up of birds.
A-PARROT TO A-FLAMINGO'S NON-PROFIT FUNDING -- NONE
A-Parrot to A-Flamingo Rescue is not a 501C3 organization. To explain further, A-Parrot
to A-Flamingo Rescue is on a "subfixed income", meaning we get NO subsidies or grants
to run our agency. Our non profit agency survives on the kindness of private donations, with the
money going to feed and care for birds left in our care.
Our help is all volunteer, no one makes a salary here, we do not do fundraisers, nor do we hold raffles.
Every animal rescue organization will have some general expenses, but the feeding of birds left in our care
takes priority at A-Parrot to A-Flamingo Rescue.
Your consideration of a donation is much appreciated. Seed and pellet donations, any brands,
and plain newspaper are gratefully accepted also!
Thank you in advance! End of commercial......
