All of our birds come with recent veterinary records and have groomed beaks, nails and wings. We strive to provide you with as much information about each bird as possible, however we do not always receive a complete history when a bird is surrendered or found.

If a parrot is still on our website and Facebook page, then they are still adoptable and looking for their new home

    ADOPTION PROCEDURES

    Before you adopt a parrot from Connecticut Parrot Rescue, make sure you know what you're getting into...

    Parrots have a VERY long lifespan. While reports vary, some parrots have lived to approximately 100 years old!! Conures live approximately 25+ years; while African Grey, Amazons, Macaws and Cockatoos generally live 60+ years.

    NEVER feed your parrot a seed-only diet!! This is the same as eating junk food everyday and leads to fatty liver disease and other health (such as malnutrition) and developmental problems. Please visit our Links and Resources to learn more about proper parrot diet and care.

    Parrots can die from Avocado, Rhubarb, Apple Seeds, Oven and Teflon Fumes and much more - visit our Links and Resources Page for more information.

    Parrots are very intelligent! They need a variety of toys which need to be rotated often, and offer them enrichment opportunities.

    Parrot love attention but can be very picky about, protective over , and aggressive to others as a result of who they choose to like and dislike.

    ALL ANIMALS BITE. But this is usually because they are scared or people haven't heeded their previous warnings - they may have learned that this is the only way humans 'listen' to them.

    Consider an Adult/Elderly Parrot. While babies are cute and generally more willing to go to anyone, they will go through puberty and their temperament often changes. If you are prepared for this and have trained your parrot well, you should 'weather the storm' just fine. However, this is usually when most parrots are surrendered and/or bad habits are reinforced. Please educate yourself and understand what your parrot is trying to communicate to you. Adult/elderly parrots have a more consistent temperament and are more settled in their needs, likes and dislikes.

    Many parrots go through hormonal and molting cycles in Spring and Fall/Autumn. This is normal, but generally makes them more grumpy.

    Why are there so many steps and visits involved in CTPR's Adoption Process? 
    Our adoption process is standard for/comparable to other parrot rescues who are truly committed to the well-being and long-term placement of the parrots in their care. Many of the parrots that are surrendered to us have already been in 3+ homes by the time they are 8 years old - usually due to no fault of their own! This much movement has the potential to result in numerous behavioral 'problems'. Given their long lifespan, we aim to find our parrots' true (or as close to as possible) forever homes.  Multiple visits have ensured the consistency and commitment of both the parrot and the adopter. On many occasions a parrot that is now truly a member of our adopter's family, did not 'come-out-of-its-shell' until a 2nd or 3rd visit and would have been overlooked by the adopter. In other instances parrots first thought to be a good match have proven otherwise. We are happy to work with you should you choose to make the commitment.

    CTPR DOES NOT Facilitate International Adoptions. Out of state adoptions may incur an additional travel fee - please inquire before submitting your application.

    We are completely volunteer-run. All of our volunteers have 'real jobs' and multiple other life commitments. Please be patient, we will reply to you.

    Thank you for choosing to adopt first!!

    CTPR's Adoption Process:

    • Please read everything on this page first to familiarize yourself with our Adoption Procedure.

    • The adoption fee is generally between $100 -$500. Cages are usually included. A portion of your adoption fees may be tax deductible.

    • The adoption form (below) must be completed by someone over the age of 18 years old, and only by the person who will be the bird's primary caretaker.

    • We will contact your landlord first if you rent your home - tell them to expect our call -, and then a representative from Connecticut Parrot Rescue will contact your references. We THEN contact you to answer all your questions. Once these steps are completed, you will receive an email to set up your first visit to CTPR. All future correspondence will be completed by email.

    • We do not allow same day adoptions - a minimum of 2 visits are required to ensure an optimal match as well as one visit with the parrot and a CTPR representative in your home.

    • Questions about specific birds will only be answered once we have received a completed application form.

    • We require an initial home visit as well as a follow-up visit in your home with the parrot within 90 days of the adoption from CTPR.

    • We will NOT adopt birds to homes that already have a bird of the same breed but a different gender. We do not support breeding; mistakes happen, and increased hormone levels in the birds can result in negative behaviors as well as can impact their health.

    • By submitting an application you agree to CTPR's procedures and practices.

    • CTPR is a completely volunteer-run organization. It may take up to two weeks to receive a reply. If you do not receive a reply within that time frame, please re-submit your application to CTPR. Please do not continue to email CTPR for a reply - you are adding to the delay.

    • We do allow adoptions to applicants with no experience, cats, dogs, young children, etc. However; each situation is assessed on a case-by-case basis based on the particular parrot's needs, previous experiences and personality.

    • We do allow out of state adoptions, but generally not more than 2 hours away from Connecticut Parrot Rescue - please check with us first.

    • CTPR works with a network of other organizations. If we do not have the optimal parrot for you, we will keep your information on hand until another suitable parrot is available at CTPR and we will provide you with other rescues' contact information.

    • Events are a great way to meet some of our available parrots. If you are interested in meeting a particular parrot, complete the application and waiver, and let us know which event you are planning to attend and which parrot(s) you are interested in meeting. We will try our best to facilitate the introduction - although this cannot be guaranteed.

    • Submitting an application does not guarantee you will be able to adopt one of our parrots. Adoptions are approved at the sole discretion of Connecticut Parrot Rescue and its appointed representatives.
