"Parrots are amazing animals. However, they can never be domesticated, and require different care and responsibility from other household companions. While we would love for every parrot that comes through our doors to find their own family, we know that it is not a reality. It may not be the right time in your life to bring a parrot in, you may not have the time available to give to a parrot, or the financial responsibility to have a parrot in your home. There are other ways in which you can help. By committing to "virtually adopt" by sponsoring one of our birds, you are committing to help on a monthly or yearly basis with the care in a manner that you can afford. All of the birds whether available for adoption or a permanent resident can be virtually adopted. When you agree to virtually adopt you will be recognized as their virtual adopter, will receive a certificate and a picture of your adopted bird. While you are committing to a monthly or yearly monetary contributions you can also send "care packages" to your virtual adopted bird with toys or treats."
