About Free Flight

About Our Shelter...

We are a unique non profit parrot sanctuary allowing the public to interact with the parrots under our guidance - this helps us to socialize the birds which in turn helps them to transition toward being adopted. Free Flight focuses on the overall well-being of the parrots living within the sanctuary as well as becoming an educational resource center for our community-at-large, especially children. Not all of our parrots will be adoptable so they are able to live out their lives at Free Flight.

Come Meet Our Pets...

You are able to visit the birds at Free Flight 7 days a week, 11:00a to 4:00p (Wednesdays, 2:00p) - weather permitting. We have a binder with all of our adoptable birds so be sure to ask about it when you come in.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is:
1. Visit Free Flight and meet the birds
2. If you find one that is adoptable, start a conversation with a staff member
3. Plan to visit the bird a few more times to be sure it is a good match for both of you; you will want to bring other family members to meet the bird as well; continue the conversation with a staff member (ex., your lifestyle, experience with parrots, housing)
4. Once you are ready to adopt you will work with a staff member to gain executive director approval, discuss adoption fee ($200 to $800, depending on the bird) and timing
5. When adoption is approved we will provide you with a written contract, collect adoption fee, provide you with written parrot care information and you will be able to take your adopted bird home
