- SURRENDERING | RELINQUISHING YOUR BIRD -
Many animal shelters are not prepared or equipped to care for exotic birds. Ruffled Feathers Parrot Rescue and Sanctuary (RFS) is one of very few sanctuaries/rescues where a bird in need can be surrendered or picked-up locally by RFS volunteers and placed in quarantine to be evaluated and Avian Vet checked. Our Rapid Response Team has saved many a bird from euthanasia or a rapidly deteriorating existence.
There is never a cost to surrender a bird, however many owners also choose to sponsor their surrendered bird and/or make financial donations to the sanctuary.
Surrendering your bird by filling out the following form states that you are the legal owner or caretaker and have the legal right to surrender the bird and thus transfers full legal ownership of the bird to the sanctuary.
