At times throughout the year, the Parrot Club of Manitoba is asked to take unwanted birds for various reasons. Sometimes an owner passes away and their bird must find a new loving home. At other times, it is because a bird has developed behavioural issues and is given up. Regardless of the case, birds taken into the club are fostered by volunteers until a long-term placement can be found. Birds surrendered to the club are available for adoption to club members. If you are currently not a member, please join the club to be notified when birds become available.
If you are thinking of re-homing a bird due to behavioural issues, please join the club and request advice before giving up on your bird. In many cases, diet, environmental conditions, cage setup, or handling can contribute to aggressive behaviour and be corrected.
If you intend to surrender a bird which is suspected of being sick you MUST disclose this information. Surrendered birds are often fostered by members who have birds of their own, which may put them at unnecessary risk of illness or even death.
The club is always in need of foster volunteers who will keep birds in their home and care for them until a long-term placement is found. Please notify the club if you would like to be considered for foster opportunities.
Please consider donating to the Parrot Club of Manitoba to help us cover the costs associated with veterinary bills and general care for birds.
