We have several options for placement assistance. Please call us, we are happy to help!
We are happy to post a flyer with your information so that our clients can contact you directly using our Parrot Placement Project binder.
We also have information on bird rescues and humane societies in the area and across the nation.
While the Parrot Placement Project will assist you in 'getting the word out', we cannot make any guarantees that you will be contacted by a suitable home. Many people receive a noteworthy response by posting to sites on the Internet. We have not heard about any good experiences from using Craigslist. Screen interested adopters carefully. We can help you screen adopters by sharing what to look for and what questions to ask, please give us a call!
In special circumstances, we will pledge to find a home for your bird utilizing our Avian Medical Center Placement Services. If you are interested in Placement, please give us a call to find out more or to set up an appointment (503) 635-5672. There is a flat fee for these services, which is primarily used to cover costs of boarding while we find a home for your feathered family member.
In any case, please visit:
The Oregon Humane Society
Their award winning shelter is easy to find and located off of I-5 at 1067 N. Columbia Blvd.
Check them out online at www.OregonHumane.org.
This link will take you to OHS's "find a home" page. It provides links to rescue groups, and information about how to work with OHS to find a home for your bird.
HOW TO CHOOSE A RESCUE or SANCTUARY
There are a lot of places that say they help birds, but we are finding that some of them are not able to provide the care standards that they wish they could.
Many of these places are simply not able to meet the need for help, and they may just have too much on their plate. Some of them just get in over their heads. They may not know how to say no, believing that only they can help the birds. It's important that you are able to visit where your bird will be staying, and to know what the criteria are for a new adoptive family. Please visit this site to learn more about how to choose a rescue or sanctuary, or what other options might be best.
