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:
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.
