STAR - St. Louis Avian Rescue's Adoption Process

1. Submit Application

We will review your application, and perform a background check, vet check and when applicable, a landlord check.

2. Home Check

3. Meet the Pet

For most species, a meeting is required. For some species, multiple meetings may be needed or required.

4. Sign Adoption Contract

Once approved, sign the adoption contract and pay the adoption fee.

5. Take the Pet Home

Whether interested in adopting a particular bird or not, you will need to fill out an Adoption Application, which can be found on our website. From there, our adoption team will process your application (including background check, veterinarian check for all current animals, and a home visit)
We will not ship any of our adoptable birds, and have a 100-mile adoption radius. We do not adopt to breeders. We are not able to adopt birds into homes that use Teflon product or smoke due to toxicity dangers.

About STAR - St. Louis Avian Rescue

While the public has become more familiar with puppy mills and the issue of dog and cat overpopulation, most people are not aware of the plight of homeless companion birds. These animals are victims of over-breeding just as other pet species are, and despite the illegality, many are still wild-caught. In addition to the problems faced by homeless pets of all kinds, birds have the added "burden" of longevity. Parrot species can live thirty, fifty, even eighty years. This increases the likelihood that a bird will have multiple homes in his or her lifetime.

STAR is a 501(c)(3) charity formed to address the issue of homeless birds in the St. Louis metropolitan area. Our volunteers foster a variety of bird species, with the eventual goal of placement in forever homes. We also strive to educate and instruct the public in not only the care of companion birds, but in the appreciation of wild birds as well. We have volunteers who can speak to children and adults on a range of topics.

Come Meet STAR - St. Louis Avian Rescue's Pets

We regularly hold “Meet the Birds” events, where the public can learn more about us, our birds, and our mission. We also attend community events to inform people about our mission and to show some of our available birds. Those interested in a particular bird must first be pre-approved to adopt by filling out an adoption application. Visit our website for info on upcoming events.
