Here are a few of the birds that have successfully found new homes through our adoption program. If you have adopted a bird through our society and would like us to post their story here, please send photo(s) and a story to email@example.com
Grinch is a 17 year old male Severe Macaw. He loves playing with his wiffle ball and eating carrots. Despite having only one wing, he has an amazing personality and loves cuddles.
Grinch was adopted in November 2016. His new family had the following to say "Honestly I took grinch on as a foster. Dead set that I was not adopting. I wanted to foster and help him find the right family to love him so he never had to go through this kind of loss again. As soon as I met him. I knew he came to me for a reason. No foster has ever made me feel the way he has. Grinch needed a home. And I needed Grinch to help me focus on the good things in life. I didn't realize this until after a couple days when I was sitting on my couch and he was laying on his side on my lap holding my finger and playing. He was purring and cooing and he looked at me and fluffed up his head so big. I knew. Right then. My partner looked over at Grinch and I and said " that birds not going anywhere. " lol. And he was right. I knew it right then.
He was brought to me by fate. I needed him just as much as he needed me. Everything happens for a reason. And this guy came into my life exactly when I needed him to. It was fate. How can you fight that?
Give a rescue a chance. They are so worth it. So very worth it. It is rewarding to give a new life to a parrot that has lost everything."
Azure is a 25 year old Umbrella Cockatoo. She loves all her toys and eating spaghetti.
Azure was adopted in August 2016. Her new family had the following to say "she is the most loving, cuddly pet I have ever had. She keeps me entertained. We love giving animals a second chance and wanted to add a cockatoo to our family. Thank you so much for bringing this blessing into my life"
Gilley is a 40 year old female Meyer's Parrot. She's quite old and doesn't play much, but she does like to climb around a lot in search of seed. She is quite friendly and anyone can handle her.
Gilley was adopted in June 2016. Her new family had the following to say "Opening our home to a geriatric bird was a great decision. She amuses us with her food pirating ways and we really like that she is laid back and a good fit with our home."
Peep is a 7 year old female Parrotlet. She loves playing with hair when it's up, and eating her pellets. She isn't afraid of anything.
Peep was adopted in February 2016. Her new family had the following to say "I didn't originally want to adopt a bird, I was fostering and offered to foster her big brother a conure, no one stepped up to foster her so she came along. I fell in love with her feisty personality and her belligerent antics."
Kiwi is a male Peachface Lovebird. He loves his bell and eating millet.
Kiwi was adopted in 2014. His new family had the following to say "My daughter wanted to adopt a bird that needed a family. She decided on kiwi. He is a blessing and I'm glad we gave him a chance."
Charlie (a double yellow headed amazon) born in 1994 originally named “Green Chicken” came to us in the summer of 2012 after spending 18 years with her first family. They couldn’t look after her any more due to health reasons, where she became neglected and started to pluck and that’s when they decided it was time for a new home. We have been able to bring her back to full feather and is a pleasant addition to our family. She has become the BCEBS mascot for what she has been through and shows how our members are committed to looking after the birds in their care.
Sidney (Blue and Gold Macaw) born in 1988 came to us in December of 2013. He has an interesting past. His first owner passed away when he was around five years old, then spent the next twenty years with his second family, but with changes in the family dynamics, he came to us.
We are working on his diet with hopes he will grow his feathers back. He is very talented and entertaining.
Casper is a male Lesser Sulphur Crested Cockatoo. He has been through the BCEBS adoption program twice. His first adoption family loved him so much that after a death in the family, they thought it was best for Casper to be re-homed. He enjoys playing with anything he knows he's not supposed to have, and eating Doritos, pasta, and computer keyboards.
Casper was adopted to his current home in February 2012. His new family had the following to say "We fell in love with Casper the first time we met him at a meeting. We knew with his personality he would fit right in. We just love Casper although he can be a real challenge. He is one of the most intelligent birds I have ever met and he knows how to get your attention, he has a remarkable vocabulary and knows how and when to use certain sounds and words to get what he wants. PS he has a potty mouth and isn't afraid to show it off!"
