Surrender a Bird

Please understand that due to limited funding at Parrot Garden we are have a waiting list for incoming birds. If you need to relinquish your bird or companion parrot, please complete the SURRENDER REQUEST.

We will contact you within 45 hours of receipt of this form if we have any additional questions. Please complete the form in full.

If you need guidance while searching for another rescue or for a sanctuary, you can e-mail us.

Regardless of the reason, situation, or circumstance, we are here to help you and your bird. We do not judge you and we realize the decision is a difficult one. However, please understand that our space is extremely limited, so emergency situations are always taken care of first.

There is a minimum surrender donation of:

  • $30.00 for extra small birds.
  • $50.00 for small birds.
  • $75.00 for medium birds.
  • 85.00 for large birds.
  • $100.00 for extra large birds.

We also request that if the cage your bird currently has is not appropriate due to size or condition, that an additional relinquishment donation be made to cover the cost of the rescue purchasing a new cage for your bird.

If re-homing due to financial circumstances, please let us know, and we can work with you!

Due to the fact that all of our volunteers donate their time to the rescue, if your relinquished bird and his/her cage (we do require the birds cage be relinquished with the bird) has to be picked up by a volunteer, we request $0.35 per km driven to cover that volunteer’s fuel expenses.

*WE HAVE A WAITING LIST FOR BIRDS NEEDING TO COME INTO RESCUE AT THIS TIME – PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY AND WELL IN ADVANCE OF NEEDING TO SURRENDER*

If you need guidance while searching for another rescue or for a sanctuary, you can e-mail us.

IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE BIRD TO RELINQUISH AND THEY ARE BONDED, PLEASE FILL OUT ONE FORM FOR EACH BONDED PAIR. IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE BIRD AND THEY ARE NOT BONDED, PLEASE FILL OUT A SEPARATE FORM FOR EACH BIRD.
