|Captive Bird Rescue, Adoption, Sanctuary & Care Education||Forms|
Living with a bird in your home requires a serious commitment and responsibility! MAARS' policy is to insure that each person adopting a bird can provide suitable housing, is morally and financially capable of providing for the bird, and is educated in proper care and nutrition for the bird.
If you live more than 60 miles outside the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, it may be difficult to fulfill all the steps required in our adoption process.
It is the policy of MAARS to adopt only to adults over 18 years of age — minors may not apply to adopt a bird. However, applications submitted by a parent or guardian of a minor will be considered, providing that the parent or guardian agrees to all terms in the Adoption Contract.
We DO NOT ship birds. You MUST live within driving distance of the Minneapolis/St. Paul area to adopt from MAARS at this time. If you do not live in our area, please visit our Bird Adoption Rescue & Sanctuary Links page to locate a bird adoption organization near you.
Our adoption application is designed to provide MAARS with the information necessary to begin an adoption placement. Please select one of the Adoption Application Options below to start your bird adoption process. Following review of your application, a MAARS representative will contact you and a home visit may be scheduled.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding MAARS, our birds, our policies, or our captive bird adoption services.
Note: Due to favorable publicity, media coverage, and enthusiastic friends and other bird lovers, MAARS now receives more applications than ever before! At this time, there is a growing list of applicants and it may be 2–4 weeks before our volunteers are able to schedule interviews and home visits. Please be patient…parrots are worth the wait!
