Feathers Galore

Kentucky based 501c3 non-profit parrot and exotic bird rescue


SURRENDERING YOUR BIRD

At Feathers Galore, we recognize surrendering your bird is not an easy decision.  Upon determination to surrender your bird to Feathers Galore, we offer the opportunity to remain active in their journey to adoption.  Progress of the bird will be posted on the rescue's Facebook page.  We also offer periodic updates on the bird if desired.  We are happy to keep you as an active part of their life during their time with Feathers Galore.  We want you to feel comfortable that your bird is in excellent care and that we will ensure your bird goes to the perfect home based on their needs and personality.  We do not require a surrender fee, but donations are always greatly appreciated!  

Surrendering your bird is not always the best option for you.  We also offer assistance with problem behaviors that may cause you to consider surrendering your bird.  Our assistance is free of charge!  We are always available to discuss your options.

What to Expect for Your Surrendered Bird

Each bird that has been brought into Feathers Galore will be treated as family.  Our goals for each bird are to:
  • Obtain specialized veterinary care by an avian veterinarian skilled in working with exotic birds.
  • Help provide and/or begin transition of each bird to a healthy diet of pellets, vegetables, and fruits.
  • Provide a caring and loving environment for the bird during their transition to their forever home.
  • Update the previous owner (if desired) on the bird's progress every step of the way.
  • Ensure the proper forever home is selected for each bird based on their personality and needs.
