Relinquishing your parrot to All Star Parrots
Handing Over A Parrot Policy
We know that sometimes people’s circumstance change. There are many reasons why you may no longer be able to keep your parrot. We are non-judgemental and will accept any parrot which we have room for and do all we can to help. We will require as much history about your parrot as possible, which will make it much easier for us to find them a new home. Due to the nature of our services we require evidence that the parrot is free of potential deadly diseases, we currently ask that you provide a negative test for PBFD prior to us accepting into the rescue.
- When you contact us we will ask for the following information: Species, age, health history, temperament, food requirements and anything else you can tell us about the background of the parrot so we can find the best home to look after them as well as possible whilst under assessment (this is also known as foster home or safe house)
- We can usually help to receive the parrot into our foster safe houses as soon as is needed by yourself, depending on the individual needs of the parrot and geographical locations this may take a little longer to organise. In this situation we will keep in regular contact with you
- When we have a space available we can arrange for the bird to be collected or, if you are able ask you to take the bird to the foster safe house, please provide as much familiar items for the parrot to aid the emotions of a new home, we ask you to provide any paperwork also. We then ask you to complete a relinquish agreement.
- Whilst in foster safe house care your parrot will be assessed by the safe house volunteer, any changes to behaviour difficulties will be addressed as well as any dietary modifications, this will prepare the parrot to move to the final forever home. If your parrot becomes ill or injured during the safehouse period, we will ensure specialist avian veterinary care is provided and paid for by the charity. When they are ready for adoption, we will make their details available on our website and start our search to find them a loving new home. We will only rehome your parrot to a home that can meet all the individual needs.
- We will ask you to sign a disclaimer form which transfers responsibility for your parrot to All Star Parrots Rescue and Rehoming. After signing this disclaimer, you, your relatives or friends will no longer be able to claim ownership of the parrot. Should any relatives or friends wish to offer your pet a home they will need to follow our usual adoption policy procedures.
- Your details will remain confidential at all times and only essential information about the parrot concerned will be disclosed to future adopters.
Once your parrot moves to a forever home, again this home would of passed a home check, the adoptee would sign the adoption paperwork, the charity will still remain the owner of the bird and in the case of the bird no longer being able to stay in the adoption home ( parrots live a long life and circumstances may change in the future ), the parrot has to be returned to the charity and a new home will be found. This protects your parrot for the rest of its natural life.
