Surrender

Our objectives are to take in birds in need of new placements for whatever reason and to find them a new caring home. 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 adoption@bcexoticbirdsociety.org and we will endeavour to find your feathered friend a wonderful new home.

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

  • 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.
  • 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 into our foster program.
  • Any donations to help support your bird during the foster period is greatly appreciated.

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.
