Chicago Land area, State of Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and surrounding areas. We do NOT ship birds. All adoptions must be handled at the shelter.
We are a bird club that has been in existence since 1931 and adopting birds to our members and public for the last 20+ yrs. Our club meets once a month on the third Friday of each month except for Nov (which we hold a Bird Show) and Dec (which we have a Holiday Party). We also hold two fairs a year in which vendors set up booths and sell birds, toys, cages and food. At the fairs we also adopt birds, provide non profit educational material on our club and other local non profits.

Our Adoption Process:
Must complete and application and be approved by adoption committee. Must have a Vet reference. Must be able to show that you can handle the bird. Fees vary on size and age of birds
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.
