Adoption Policies, Procedures, and Applications

The Connecticut Parrot Society (CPS) helps residents of Connecticut with the placement of companion birds. If you need to place your bird, we request that your bird remain with you while we list the bird for adoption on this Web site and in our newsletter.

If you need to relinquish your bird, or wish to adopt a bird, please review our Adoption Policies and Procedures, and contact the CPS adoption chairperson by phone to discuss the process.

We are not a parrot rescue or sanctuary; therefore, we cannot accept emergency placement on a regular basis. Our foster care housing is limited, and if we do not have available foster homes, we may need to refer emergency placement to other clubs or rescues in the surrounding area. We are in great need of foster homes for some of the birds we are receiving into the adoption program. If you are a CPS member and can help provide foster care, please review the Foster Care Policies and Procedures, and contact the adoption chairperson to discuss the process.

Foster Care Application

CPS’ Adoption Application requires a non-refundable application fee of $35.00 for CPS members and $50.00 for non-members to CPS. Approved adoption applications will remain on file with CPS for up to six months, or until a bird is adopted, whichever comes first. There is a non-refundable $20.00 processing fee to relinquish a bird.

Relinquishment Form

Please note: Non-members may adopt only after a bird has been in the program for 30 days. You must be at least 21 years old to be eligible to adopt through CPS.

Questions about the CPS adoption program or any form listed above should be directed to the following:

  • Sharon Presner CPS adoption chairperson at 203-640-8641 or email
Thank you for your interest!

Birds Available for Adoption


Photo coming soon

Brady a 13-year-old Blue and Gold Macaw! He is on a pelleted diet. Brady is in a foster home and we are just getting to know him. Brady has been feather-picking and will need an understanding family with large bird experience.


MacKenzie is a beautiful 22-year-old male Green Wing Macaw! He is a good-natured parrot with a sense of humor. During the home visit, it was clear how much he enjoys interacting, singing, and playing peek-a-boo!


Missy is a lovely female Senegal parrot! She is about 14-16 years old. She enjoys playing with appropriately sized toys. She is nervous with strangers and needs time to warm up. She “steps up” onto a perch, but not a hand. Missy is on a pelleted diet, along with a variety of other foods.


He’s chatty, handsome, and smart! He’s Mosby a 15-year-old male African Grey! Mosby has been with one family since he was a baby. He has a sweet disposition and enjoys head scratches. He’s hesitant about “stepping up ,” but we are just getting to know him in his foster home. Mosby enjoys his baths and a variety of foods, and he even moves his foot to the rhythm of music!


Muneco is a 16-year-old male Moluccan Cockatoo, who has been in the same family for most of those years. He enjoys bathing in the shower or being misted. He stepped up for the owner, but was a little hesitant with the person doing the home visit. He seems very friendly but shy with strangers. The bird would be a great companion parrot for someone with large-parrot experience. Muneco would not be placed with anyone living in an apartment or attached condominium due to the occasional noise that these birds make. Muneco enjoys listening to music, and his diet consisted of seeds, nuts, and fresh fruit and vegetables. Currently, he is being converted over to a pelleted diet. He comes with a large cage, toys, and other items.


Rainbow is a sexed male Blue and Gold Macaw.  He is between 8-12 years old and is very beautiful. His present owner will be traveling and is unable to keep him.Rainbow is very animated and curious. He loves to be bathed and is a very good eater. His diet consists of pellets, fruits, vegetables, and some nuts. Rainbow strongly prefers men.During the home visit, he was able to be handled right away by his male visitor. Presently, Rainbow is in foster care with the persons who did the home visit. The male foster person is able to cuddle Rainbow, scritch his head and have fun time with him. Rainbow has been vet-checked, and all tests are good. It would be best if Rainbow were adopted by a man who has large-bird experience. His new family will need to provide him with a large, Macaw-sized cage and lots to do. We feel he will be a great companion in the right home. Rainbow is to be placed with Sunny (see other listing).


Sunny is a beautiful Camelot Macaw! He is about 33 years old. Sunny likes to dance and show off his wings and anticipates applause when he does! He also enjoys listening to music and being sung to. He has a good diet consisting of pellets and assorted foods. Sunny is to be placed with Rainbow (see other listing) because they have become buddies.


Sunny is an adorable Sun Conure! He is 18 years old and enjoys hanging out with his family. Sunny has a varied diet, and he likes to play with toys made from soft wood. ***Adoption pending***
