*The above fees do NOT include cages. Please understand we try to keep our fees down. If you need help finding a cage we can offer resources.
Why do we charge a fee?
• When a bird is relinquished to CRPS sometimes we find it imperative to purchase a new cage when we deem the present one unfit for the bird.
• Not all birds come to CRPS healthy. For this reason an immediate veterinarian assessment is needed and any medical treatment deemed necessary will be provided to ensure the bird gets on a healthy journey.
• Some birds come to us on a very poor diet and lack cage accessories which are vital to their healthy well-being. This requires CRPS to purchase perches, toys and proper pellet diet for the bird.
• If someone is not able to afford an adoption fee how are they going to be able to pay for an avian veterinarian, proper food and toys?
