We serve the Greater Capital Region of eastern Upstate New York.
The Capital Region Parrot Society is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit run entirely by volunteers. We find homes for homeless parrots and provide foster care until such homes can be found.
Our Adoption Process:
Adopters are required to fill out an application; schedule a home visit; meet the bird to establish compatibility; purchase and furnish an appropriate size cage; and sign an adoption contract stating that the bird will not be used for breeding or given away and that he/she will be properly cared for.
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.
