At Nevada Bird Rescue we understand that human lives change. From having to move into a smaller home to being deployed overseas, there are many reasons for needing to give up a companion bird. Without judgment, we are here to help owners find solutions to their dilemma. Each new bird that comes in gets a medical exam and a behavioral analysis. The parrots that would be best served with a family, with the owner’s release, are adopted out to qualified homes. The birds that are more challenging stay with Nevada Bird Rescue as their forever home. If at some later time we cannot keep a bird, we attempt to contact the previous owner first to see if their circumstances have changed, or if they have someone in mind whom they desire to have their former companion bird. This ability to be involved with the bird’s future is a large reason why Nevada Bird Rescue is the preferred choice for re-homing companion parrots. We never charge a fee for taking in any birds.
If you can no longer keep your bird, be it a parrot or an ostrich, and would like to have a judgment-free evaluation and consider your options, please do not hesitate to send us an email with a photo of your bird. We are here to help, and will serve your bird well, whether it is loved living with us or in a new screened and caring home. No bird is ever “unimportant” to us.
