PARROT HAVEN RESIDENTS
SOME HAVE BEEN ADOPTED, SOME STILL RESIDE HERE.
SCROLL DOWN TO VIEW BIRDS FOR ADOPTION.
There are always birds in need of loving homes. If you have the time, patience, care and concern and think you'd make a good adoptive parent, please submit a completed adoption application. Come down to a meeting so members of the adoption committee can get to know you and what type of bird might be best for you.
A donation is expected when you adopt your bird. Donations vary according to species, accessories, personality, medical bills. Parrot Haven incurs a lot of costs to maintain the sanctuary, having provided a safe haven for homeless and disabled birds since birds 1999. There's electric and gas. the birds need to be cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Property taxes have increased tremendously since the extentions were built. . What a water bill with all the cleaning going on. One of the reasons I started Parrot Haven was that I noticed that there was no rescue facility for birds on the Island. Local animal shelters will house dogs and cats, but few take in birds. Maybe a few places run out of homes, but none incorporated or non-profit. When I started the Parrot Fanciers' Club, in 1998, it soon became apparent that there was a need for the services that Parrot Haven provides. So many birds needed homes and there was no place for them to go. So Dennis and I not only opened our home, but personally built several extensions to accommodate the growing need for more and more birds. We had to apply for several variances with the Town of Babylon to build the additions to our house. So when you pick up your bird, please be prepared to make a reasonable donation, which is fully tax deductible. Remember, you're not only acquiring what will be a life long pet, but your donation helps cover the cost of keeping the sanctuary operating.
Parrot Haven receives many requests for adoptions. All potential parents must be members of the Parrot Fanciers Club. This helps insure that our birds will be going to a home where the new owner will be receiving emails with educational material and will also encourage phone calls to the Parrot Hotline, at 631-956-0015 or by seeking information by emailing ParrotAdoptions@aol.com. Most people giving up a bird want to be sure that their beloved pet is going to a member that someone from the club can vouch for. This can only happen if a member attends a meeting or event periodically. In all fairness to our current members who wish to adopt, all future parents must become members. You may print out a membership application by going to Parrot Fanciers Club. An Adoption Application is located on Parrot Haven. Be sure to print out the form that includes your name, address, email address and phone number.
Birds will only be adopted within the tri-state area or if the adopter is willing to arrange transportation to NY to pick up their adopted bird. Parrot Haven representatives feel uneasy about sending a bird to their new home by airplane. Only in special circumstances will this method be considered.
