Relinquish or Surrender of Birds


Whenever problems occur in the home with a companion parrot, CPR will try to work with the owner to help resolve those issues. We offer many free classes that could help. However, at CPR we also understand and recognize that circumstances do arise that make it very difficult or impossible to adequately care for a bird. Therefore, in these circumstances, an assessment of the bird will be conducted and a determination made whether it would be an adoptable bird, eligible to be added to our wait list. Waiting times can vary according to the number of birds already on the wait list and the number of birds adopted.

Due to the extreme difficulty in finding qualified homes for large Cockatoos, CPR is no longer accepting them into the program. This was a very difficult decision but one we feel necessary. Because CPR is not a sanctuary, we must be able to allocate time and resources to those birds we deem adoptable.

Whenever a bird is found to be in a life-threatening situation, CPR will attempt to make room in the program for that bird immediately. CPR will also try to make room in the program to accept birds that are found outdoors or abandoned. Efforts to locate the owner will be made before placing the bird into the CPR adoption program.

All birds entering the CPR program are seen and treated by an avian veterinarian. At the time of surrender, owners are asked to make a tax-deductible donation to offset this expense, as well as the upkeep of the bird until adoption. Inability to cover this expense will not disqualify any bird from entering the program. Owners are asked to donate the bird's current cage and supplies to provide some security and continuity during transition. CPR reserves the right to upgrade the cage if deemed inappropriate and dispose of or re-use the old cage.

If you are in a situation where you feel you must surrender your bird, please contact Companion Parrots Re-homed or Parrot University. You must submit a questionnaire about your bird to assist in transition and placement. Click here to access the form.
