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 $35.00 for CPS members and $50.00 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:

Thank you for your interest!

Peaches and Azure
Peaches and Azure

Peaches is a four-year-old Pineapple Green-cheeked Conure. Azure, his son, is two years old and is a cross between a Pineapple Green-cheeked Conure and a Gold-capped Conure. They are a playful little pair. These conures share one cage and must be adopted together. They enjoy a varied diet, with Peaches being more adventurous than Azure when it comes to trying new foods.

Chico


Chico
Chico

Chico is a majestic 29-year-old Blue-fronted Amazon with vibrant plumage. He is thought to be male and has been with one family since he was a baby. It was a joy to be with Chico during the home visit. He demonstrated a mellow personality and a playful side, too! The photo shows Chico exploring a new toy that had just been presented to him. Chico relishes attention, conversation, and hanging out with family and friends. He likes to bathe by being misted. He has been on a mostly seed-mix diet with some fresh foods; further improvements are being made to his diet.

Bopper


Bopper
Bopper

Bopper is a delightful male Hispaniolan Amazon and is 26 years old. He vocalized softly when meeting his new visitor. Bopper preferred not to venture out of his cage during the home visit, but was soon comfortable and enjoying a snack. He says a few words and enjoys a good head scratch. Bopper is seen regularly by his veterinarian and requires his beak to be trimmed every six months. Bopper resides in the same home with Bogey (see other listing). Although they have separate cages, it is hoped that Bopper can be adopted together with Bogey; however, separate adoptions may be considered.

Bogey


Bogey
Bogey

Bogey is a handsome, 26-year-old male White-fronted Amazon. During the home visit, Bogey appeared relaxed and seemed to enjoy basking in the sunshine that was streaming in from the window. He preferred to hang out in his cage. Bogey enjoys having his head scratched and likes to imitate noises. He resides in the same home with Bopper (see other listing). Although they have separate cages, it is hoped that Bogey can be adopted along with Bopper; however, separate adoptions may be considered.
