FAQ

What to do with a bird you can’t keep?

You can ask avian vets and wildlife rehabbers in your area for referrals, do Internet searches for ‘bird rescue’, ‘bird sanctuary’, ‘animal sanctuary’, ‘farm sanctuary’, ‘pigeon rescue’, etc.

What is the best charity for birds?

American Bird Conservancy is a nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving wild birds and their habitats throughout the Americas.

Can I let my bird free?

Pet birds will probably not survive if released unless the habitat where you live is very similar to the one they came from. If the birds are captive-bred or were taken from the wild as nestlings, they have little chance of survival—they don’t know how to find food, what to eat, where to roost.

Should I give my birds away?

Never give your bird away. Always ask for an adoption fee. A person that gets a bird for free is a lot less likely to ever spend any money on the bird as far as vet care etc. Never adopt your pet to someone without getting to know them and how they will care for your pet beforehand.
