Surrendering A Bird

To Place A Bird With Us

If you need to surrender a bird, you will need to fill out an Intake Form and email it or bring it with you when you surrender.

Unfortunately we are no longer accepting birds without cages at this time. We have taken numerous birds this season with no cages and we no longer have extra cages for surrenders. If you cannot provide a cage for your bird we are going to have to charge a fee upon surrendering so that we can provide one. We currently have room for more birds however we are limited to taking the on an emergency basis at this time.You must answer the following questions in order to place your bird into our rescue. This way we can better asses each bird.

For emergencies, we will travel up to 50 miles to pick up a bird, but we will have to charge a fee to cover our gas. We will charge a standard fee of $25.00 if we must travel over 10 miles. If we have to travel over 1 hour away we will be charging fees $50.00+ depending on distance.

**We are located at our facility in: Canton, Ohio 44707

Surrender Form

Due to the cost of medical care, caging, toys, foods, and other supplies needed to providing for our birds, we need your financial support . We ask that you consider a making a donation to offset the care of your bird. Many of the parrots that come here are from true rescue situations and have not been as fortunate as your bird. Your financial contribution enables us to offset some of the costs incurred with rescue so we can continue with those efforts. You are not required to make a donation upon surrender, however, if you surrender a bird with out a cage, or other supplies a donation is required.

We are not here to criticize or judge you. We are here to help! We just want to help the birds, what ever your situation may be. We understand that things happen. We also get a lot of birds who have severe behavioral problems because the owner let it get that way.

For Example: If your bird screams, do not put him in another room by himself. For the most part they scream for attention They are flock animals, so when they scream they expect you to answer them back, they are just trying to keep in contact. When putting them someplace, where they are getting no interaction they may do things like pull out their feathers, self mutilate, and also become aggressive. These are ways that birds deal with stress and depression. Please do not let this happen to your bird!
