Right now we are looking for great adopters for birds left in our care. Are you an experienced parrot owner interested in obtaining another bird? We adopt out to multi-pet and multi-bird owners too. We would like to meet you via email !
Adoption consideration depends on your completing our adoption process, with final approval by our Board of Directors. Experienced parrot owners are always given first adoption consideration.
DO YOU HAVE A PARROT YOU CANNOT KEEP?
We are not soliciting for parrots for our personal ownership, we cannot purchase your parrot, and we cannot start the "rehoming process" until birds are signed over to us. Our agency does not "sell birds for profit".
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. There are rehoming fees in order to be able to feed and care for the birds left in our temporary care until they find their permanent home.
Please go to our page "DONATE BIRD" or "ADOPT BIRD" for more info.
PARROT/BIRD SPECIES WE DO TAKE IN:
MEDIUM AND SMALL SIZED PARROTS. (Space here is limited for holding cockatoos or large macaws.) We can take in the smaller of these species, though.
ALL MEDIUM SIZE PARROTS-- African greys, timnehs, caiques, amazons, eclectus, etc.
ALL SMALL PARROTS--Conures, ringneck parrots, other parakeets species, parrotlets, red rumps, bourkes (all grass parakeets), cockatiels, budgies, finches, canaries.
FLAMINGOS? We will gladly accept "unwanted" pink plastic garden flamingos -- to add to the flock "decor" in our yard.
WE DO NOT TAKE IN:
No wild or outside birds, baby birds fallen out of nests, farm birds, game birds, swans, peacocks, toucans, mynahs, lories, doves, pigeons. But we may be able to assist you with a referral.
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 adoption requirements.
A-Parrot to A-Flamingo, Inc. 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 as a consultant to the Brecksville Animal Control Department for bird and parrot issues in the city.
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".
We 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 registered as a "No Kill" organization.
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 no 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 receipts apply. See: "ADOPT BIRD"
INFO FOR FIRST-TIME PARROT OWNERS
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.
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.
INFO AND PICTURES OF BIRDS AVAILABLE
Visit our birds at our page on Petfinder.com:
All birds are subject to prior adoption at any time. This list is revised as fast as we can.
SOME OF OUR ADOPTION CONTRACT CONDITIONS…..
If one is not able to keep the parrot you have obtained from A-Parrot Rescue for any reason, you must return it to A-Parrot to re-home. However, we are unable to refund your donation.
FREE PARROTS, CHEAP BIRDS ?
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.
This is why A-Parrot to A-Flamingo Rescue needs to request donations for drop off and pick up of birds.
REFERRALS AND OUR CLIENTS
A-PARROT TO A-FLAMINGO'S FUNDING -- NONE
A-Parrot to A-Flamingo Rescue is not a 501C3 organization. Therefore donations are not deductible. 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. Your donation goes for us buying seed, pellets, treats to feed parrots left in our care, and necessary vet care. Every rescue organization will have some expenses, but feeding birds left in our care takes priority here.
Thank you in advance! End of commercial......
OUR CLIENT'S PRIVACY
If you agree to our adoption policies as explained here so far, feel free to email us in order to start your EMAIL interview! (we prefer email contact first, rather than phoning...) Let us know something about you and your birds in your email.
