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:
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.
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.
