Re-Homing

We are currently making some changes to our adoption/re-homing program, please inquire if you have any questions.

 

Our objectives are to help re-home birds in need of new placements for whatever reason. In the case of a found bird, efforts will be made to locate the owner and return the bird. If you can no longer keep your bird, or know someone in this position, please contact us at rehoming@bcexoticbirdsociety.org and we will endeavor to find your feathered friend a wonderful new home.

  • We require a surrender form to be filled out, you can find the paperwork below:

formiconSurrender Form

  • Please provide as much information about the bird as possible such as: daily routine, health concerns, wake/sleep times, special toys, diet, temperament, and any other known information.
  • Please provide us with a photo(or more) of the bird(s)
  • To reduce stress on your bird(s) it is in their best interest that their cage, food, toys, and any other bird related items accompany them to their new home.

We only deal with legal exotic avian species such as parrots, canaries, and finches; however, we are a small society working out of our member’s homes. At the moment we are not currently able to take in ex-breeders and large aviaries of birds.

If you have other species of pet birds, you can also try some of the other rescues and associations:

The Vancouver Poultry and Fancy Pigeon Association – Pigeons and poultry

Vancouver Canary Club – Canaries

Greyhaven – Exotic birds, Vancouver

FEATHERS – Exotic birds, Vancouver Island

If you have found orphaned or injured wildlife, please contact one of the following rescues:

OWL (Orphaned Wildlife) Rehabilitation Society – birds of prey (hawks, falcons, eagles, owls), Delta

Wildlife Rescue – birds and other wildlife, Burnaby

Elizabeth’s Wildlife Center – small birds and mammals, Abbotsford

Wild Arc – birds and other wildlife, Vancouver Island

If you see an animal in distress, please contact the BC SPCA

 

 

 

 

If you are interested in taking lease take a look through our available birds to see if there’s one that may be suitable for your family and lifestyle and take a look and the information below for more information.

  • We require an adoption form to be filled out to state your interest and to let us know a little more about you. The paperwork can be found below:

formiconAdoption Application

  • Part of our screening process, particularly with the larger birds, may involve an interview, one or more visits with the bird(s), as well as a visit to your home. Just submitting an application does not guarantee you will get the bird.
  • Adoption fees range from $50-250, and include a year’s membership to the society. This is to ensure you have help and support for your new family member.
  • New homes are responsible for providing the bird(s) with proper care and loving attention, and are required to notify us if this is no longer possible and the bird(s) must be re-homed.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Keep in mind that we are a Canadian society located in British Columbia.
  • We do not intend for birds to be adopted out for breeding purposes.
