THESE FORMS ARE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE ALREADY BEEN APPROVED FOR PLACEMENT. PLEASE DO NOT FILL OUT THESE FORMS UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED.
There are TWO forms on this page. Please complete both of them. The first form is to legally transfer ownership. The second form, however, provides us with extra information that may be important to the care of your bird and to help them successfully transition to their new home.
Please keep in mind, our current costs for disease tests PER BIRD or PER CAGE if birds have lived together for an appropriate length of time, is a MINIMUM of $45 for the test (lab fee). If we need a blood sample for labs, that will cost us $22.40 for a lab blood draw if we are not having other bloodwork done at the time, and we also have to pay Priority Mail fees to send the samples to the lab. We get no subsidies or funding from any government agency, nor are we reimbursed for care of any of the birds who are placed here by any agency. We rely solely on donations and fundraising to help us in caring for the birds placed in our care.
If you cannot donate at this time, please consider doing one of the following:
- Volunteering – we can ALWAYS use help with the work of caring for the birds
- Fundraising – there are many creative ways to raise funds including asking friends and family to donate in lieu of holiday gifts, approaching your employer to ask about holding a “fun”raiser where employees can buy special privileges like wearing jeans to work on a Friday in return for a small donation to our organization.
- Social media promotion – the more people who see our posts and events, the more chances of connecting with donors. We do two scheduled auctions during the year – in April and in November, as well as various “flash” auctions that occur when urgent needs arise. Just by liking our page, liking our posts and sharing our events, you can help us reach more people and raise more funds. Consider doing a “birthday fundraiser” on Facebook. Every penny raised goes solely to benefit the birds as no one gets paid to work here.
