We are the Center for Avian Adoption, Rescue, and Education! We are an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation located in West Fargo, North Dakota. Our mission is to reach out and educate the public on the appropriate health care and general well-being of companion parrots. To find homes for displaced companion parrots through our adoption program. To provide a friendly and caring environment for our members and guests to socialize and learn from one another.
Although North Dakota is our home, we welcome the opportunity to extend our services to any area we are able and would be happy to hear from anyone sharing our interest in the care of companion parrots, wherever located.

Our Adoption Process...
Procedurally, if you wish to adopt a parrot from our organization, you must first become a member. That requires return of the membership application (attached) along with a $25.00 single or $30.00 family membership fee. The membership fees go towards the membership, the discount on food and toys in our store and the home visits. Members may adopt a parrot at such time as their Adoption Application (attached) for the parrot in question has been approved. Adoption fees vary and are due and payable in full prior to the parrot being placed into the home, but are fully refundable for a period of 30 days upon return of the parrot to C.A.A.R.E. in the same condition as received within said 30 days. This is to ensure that the parrot fits into the family well. Home visits are generally required as part of the adoption process to ensure that a proper environment is being provided for the parrot. We have contracts signed and in place for the well being of the parrot or parrots with guidelines and stipulations.
