Are you unable to provide the care and environment that your pet bird requires? The GCCBC understands that sometimes life changes occur and you find you can no longer care for your birds the way they need to be cared for. Sometimes a particular bird has special needs that are more than you can handle. If you have tried to find a good home but are unable to, and you feel that there is absolutely no way you can continue to care for your pet and that it is in the best interest of your pet to find another home, we can help.
The GCCBC offers an adoption program for all types of cage birds in need of a home.
For placement of birds into our adoption program,
please call (630) 640-4924 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
To see a list of current birds available for adoption please visit Adopt-a-pet.
GCCBC now offers birds for adoption to non-members who meet special adoption criteria.
Non-members are eligible* to adopt birds that have been made available to members at our monthly meeting at least 2 times. There are many wonderful birds available! If you are not currently a member, you will have to meet certain criteria, such as providing a Vet reference, and submitting to a home visit depending on the type of bird you are applying for. More rules and regulations will be posted very soon.
Members interested in adopting a bird must meet the knowledge and facility requirements deemed appropriate by the Adoption Committee. They will be made aware of any special needs of the bird prior to the adoption. Members become eligible to adopt at the member price after 3 months* for smaller birds and after 12 months for larger birds*.
*The Adoption Chair and Adoption Decision Committee reserves the right to refuse adoption to any member or non-member based on adoption application responses.
