Adoption Fees

Birdline is 100% a volunteer organization, there are no paid staff or administrative staff.  Being a non profit, we rely on donations and adoption fees to keep the organization operational as well as various fundraising events throughout the year.

All adoption fees go directly back into the rescue, these fees help to cover the costs of veterinary care that ALL incoming/existing parrots receive once they come to Birdline, the cost of new cages/enrichment/dietary needs and special medical care that some birds require in order to sustain the best quality of life.

    Hi there, I am Rubylynn. I would like to say I admire you for what you do. It would be a dream for me to do the same.
    I recently lost my amazon and am heart broken and totally lost without my shoulder companion. I have been searching for and amazon, blue and gold or cockatoo to care for and love for weeks now and other than scammers haven’t had any luck.
    I am a single woman with lots of time to give. I live in rural B.C. and I rarely leave my house so it is quite a challenge to find something online. If you have a feather kid to adopt, or can point me in the right direction
    I would so appreciate it.

    Hello, I have recently seen your rescue on the news and would like to join you in your efforts of rehoming and rehabilitating birds. My girlfriend and I have about 3 years experience with our own Amazon parrot and are interested in volunteering our time and possibly fostering. Please let us know how we can get involved with your organization.

  • Bonnie Kroetsch

    Hello my name is Bonnie I have always wanted a bird. I have a little experience with birds. How ever I am home all day most days. There are times when I need to run to the City so I have lots of time to spend with a bird if given the chance. My husband works away. So this would be a companion for me. Our dog is 12 years old and not in good health because of age. So I am looking for new companion. Our children have all left the nest and started there own families. I am willing to learn anything I need to as it would help fill my days. Willing to adopt or foster.

    • Hi Bonnie,
      Can you please fill out the foster application and the volunteer application located on our website.
      Thank you!

    I may be interested in a parrot I just had my Quaker of 19 years pass away. Very sad about it. Iam considering maybe helping you out.

    • Hi Patrick,
      I am so sorry to hear of your parrots passing. It is never easy losing a feathered companion.
      On our website you will find a new foster application as well as a Volunteer application. Please fill these out if you are looking to do either at this time.
      Sincere condolences on your loss.

    • Hi Saheti
      Unfortunately we do not adopt out of Province. Please email me directly with your contact information and I will ensure that you are added to our file of families looking to adopt. We do get people requesting to surrender out of Province and we keep names of those interested so we can potentially assist in making a match.
