We serve the entire United States. We have homecheckers and transporters all over and currently have two branch offices. One in New York and one in New Jersey.
The Healthipet Network was founded to assist avian and exotic animal shelters and rescues in placing avian companions and exotic animals in forever loving homes outside of their area or home state. It utilizes volunteers to perform home inspections prior to placement. We operate as a non-profit organization and funding comes from donations, grants, adoption fees, and membership dues. Five separate individuals performing different duties form our board and govern us. This board makes all final decisions. We hope to broaden the reach of the network to include the entire United States. We intend to utilize state representatives in close contact with the Network to effectively and efficiently handle all issues and ensure the best outcome for the avian and animal placements. In addition, we hope to obtain funding to purchase a building to be used as our home office and rescue, with primary concern being disaster relief situations and overflow from other rescues.
Our Adoption Process:
You must fill out an adoption application. Provide two references. Provide certified avian vet. Submit to phone interview and home visit. Pay adoption fee which is based on each bird individually to offset vet fees, etc.
Why should you adopt?
birds can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a bird for sale or finding a bird breeder, adopting a bird from
an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a bird to your family.
Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for
a bird. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or
attention your bird needs, and many other important things about how to
house and care for a bird. There are different types of birds
including African Grey, Amazon, Brotogeris, Budgie, Button Quail, Caique, Canary, Chicken, Cockatiel, Cockatoo, Conure, Dove, Duck, Eclectus, Emu, Finch, Goose, Guinea Fowl, Kakariki, Lorikeet, Lovebird, Macaw, Mynah, Ostrich, Parakeet - Other, Parakeet - Quaker, Parrot - Other, Parrotlet, Peacock, Pheasant, Pigeon, Pionus, Poicephalus (including Senegal and Meyer's), Quail, Rhea, Ringneck, Rosella, Softbill - Other, Swan, Toucan, and Turkey.
Pet adoption saves lives. Adopt a pet and you'll have a friend for life! Please consider a rescue pet before you buy a pet from a breeder or pet store. Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
