REGULAR Placement Program:
With our regular placement program the bird stays in your home for as long as possible.
EMERGENCY Foster Program:
We do not generally offer Foster Services as our fostering resources are limited. *Please do not expect to be able to move your parrot immediately.
Adoption candidates are made eligible by the Parrot Placement Committee of the Long Island Parrot Society. Many applicants are longstanding LIPS members. All applicants will have have passed a home inspection prior to approval as eligible candidates. Members who are interested in adopting your bird will contact you directly at the telephone number/s you supply us with. We do not give out your address - if you speak to a candidate that you think is a good match you can give them your address and directions to your home after you have arranged a meeting.
If you are uncomfortable with any of the candidates - Do not transfer ownership of the bird. Let us know that you want to see additional people and we will refer other candidates to you.
NO MONEY CHANGES HANDS BETWEEN THE CANDIDATE AND THE OWNER
We do not help people sell their parrots OR accessories. If you choose to use this service all items belonging to the bird (cage, food, toys etc) as well as the parrot go to the new home free of charge. In some cases people have asked for money for the cage or accessories - even for the bird! Adoption candidates have been instructed to leave and not adopt the bird if they are asked for money.
If you choose to use our service you will not be paid for the bird, cage or accessories.
