Sponsor A Bird

Your dollars CAN make a difference!

An excellent way to support Parrots First is by becoming a sponsor. Many of our birds will not be going to homes anytime soon. This is sometimes due to medical or behavioral issues. We also have a few bonded pairs of birds, which are harder to home because they have to be adopted as a pair.

Birds in Need of Sponsorship

As a sponsor, you would contribute to the care of the bird that you sponsor, and, in return, Parrots First will send you pictures and updates about the bird.

Sponsorships can also be given as gifts if you wish to dedicate your sponsorship to a special recipient.

How to Become a Sponsor

  1. Select a bird to sponsor for one year from the pictures and links listed above, or request that a Parrots First volunteer assign you a bird for sponsorship.
  2. On each bird’s sponsorship page, there is a link to Network for Good, which is the online payment portal for Parrots First (Network for Good accepts PayPal as well). Click on the Network for Good icon to start your sponsorship, and be sure to indicate which bird you are sponsoring in the “Designation” field. If your sponsorship is a gift, please indicate the name of the recipient in the “Dedication or Gift” field.

Payment

Payment can be made either through monthly installments or one-time donations. Once your sponsorship is processed, Parrots First will mail you a Certificate of Sponsorship with a picture and short biography of the sponsored bird. You will also be provided with periodic updates on your sponsored bird.

Other Parrots First Sponsorship Program Policies

Sponsorship of a bird does not affect the adoption process in any way, either for that bird or for any other bird. Parrots First and its Board of Directors shall have sole discretion to disperse Sponsorship funds for the care of the specified bird or any other bird in the Parrots First System (care includes, but is not limited to, veterinary expenses, food, supplies, or other expenses). Sponsors will be notified in the event that their sponsored bird is adopted or passes away and will be provided with an option to continue the term of their sponsorship with a new bird of their choosing. Sponsors may terminate their sponsorship at any time with notice given to Parrots First.

Contributions are tax deductible as allowed by State and Federal Law
