Adoption Policies, Procedures, and Applications

***DUE TO C-19, ADOPTION PROGRAM ACTIVITIES ARE TEMPORARILY MODIFIED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.***

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:

  • For questions about the CPS adoption program or forms, contact the adoption chairperson by emailing adoption@connecticutparrotsociety.org or calling 203-640-8641.
  • No texts, please.
Thank you for your interest!
