Examples of shelters for parrots include RoseBerry Bird Rescue, A Refuge for Saving the Wildlife and Foster Parrots. These non-profit organizations work to rescue abandoned or unwanted parrots and find nurturing homes for them. If a bird is not desirable for adoption, these shelters also provide lifelong homes.
RoseBerry Bird Rescue works to identify the personality traits of each bird to find a more suitable adoptive home. Individuals interested in adoption must fill out applications and answer basic questions about their family dynamics and living situations to find matching birds. Upon choosing a bird, completing necessary paperwork and paying the adoption fee, adopters can take their new birds home. In the weeks following adoption, RoseBerry Bird Rescue may schedule visits with a 24-hour notice to check on the animal's welfare.
