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:

Angel - 10/4/2014

Angel is an unsexed, approximately 10-year-old Peach-faced Lovebird. Her owner has severe health problems and was heartbroken to relinquish her. Angel is a very sweet little bird with a lot of curiosity, but has not been handled in her previous homes. Currently, she is in foster care and loves the company of both humans and other birds. She will often chirp back and forth with the flock, though she can be a little timid and will hide in her little fur cozy, if you come too close to the cage too quickly. Her little chirp and sweet demeanor will be a nice addition to a home with or without other birds, but she will need time and attention to train her to step up and to enjoy human company outside her cage. Currently, Angel is on a seed-mix diet and is unaccustomed to other foods. She will come with her cage and several toys.
