Adoption Process

Are you interested in adopting a PEAC bird? Here is our process:
Step 1: Read the PEAC Adoption Policies. Click here to go to Adoption Policies.
Step 2: In a 12-month period, attend all three REQUIRED SEMINARS: “Basic Bird Care”, “Parrot Behavior” and “Enrichment for Parrots”.  After completing “Parrot Behavior” and “Enrichment for Parrots” you will be provided with details needed to access our on-line Avian Basic Care seminar.  Click here to go to Seminar information.
Step 3: After completion of all three seminars, an adoption application will be mailed to you. Fill it out and return it to PEAC.
Step 4: If the application is accepted, a home visit by a PEAC Volunteer will be arranged.  The purpose of this visit is to assist with identifying any safety hazards in the home (so you may take steps to correct them), suggest cage and/or play gym placement to make a bird most comfortable, etc.  This home visit is designed to assure the smoothest transition possible for your family and a new feathered friend.
Step 5: If one of our program birds is a good fit for you and your family, you will receive an adoption contract and a list of associated veterinary and adoption fees for that particular bird. Complete the contract and return it along with payment for the vet and adoption fees. When this is received by PEAC, you will be contacted to schedule a time to pick up your bird.
