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:
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.
Peanut is a delightful little Green-cheeked Conure! His
age and gender are unknown. Peanut is playful and
enjoys snuggling! He also enjoys bathing in his
water dish; his feathers are in great condition.
Peanut can be territorial regarding his cage, but
once away from it, he is very interactive. Peanut is
on a diet of parrot seed mix, but is in the process
of being converted to a pelleted diet, along with
fruits and vegetables.
