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; thus, 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 $25.00 for CPS members and $35.00 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:

Blue is a very handsome, thought-to-be-male, Blue-fronted Amazon, who is approximately six years old. Blue loves music, the outdoors, and the company of his family, and he is a very healthy and alert guy. However, Blue has become somewhat unpredictable and nippy. His owner has decided that she is unable to care for him properly, and that he would be better off in a home with a more experienced parrot owner. Blue is a beautiful bird and is likely to thrive with some efforts to address what appears to be hormonal behavior. He needs plenty of stimulating toys in a home with an understanding, confident bird owner. Blue will come with his cage, a nice play stand and his carrier. He is on a diet of pellets and additional healthy foods.
