KwaZulu-Natal

Hi, KZN residents!

Here are some of the parrots in our system that are currently in foster care and seeking their new forever families. 

You can start by completing an adoption application (see buttons below). We try to avoid inter-provincial travel unless we really struggle to find a home in the original region, so this page is dedicated to applicants in KZN only.

Please kindly note that we are a volunteer-run organisation so it might take some time for us to get to your application, especially because we are currently trying to work through a backlog that has occurred as well. 

Want to know more about the permit requirements for Indian Ringneck Parakeets? Read our Blog post on the subject.

Spotlight on: Luci

Cockatiel
📍Howick, KwaZulu-Natal
 
Luci is a sweet-tempered male cockatiel that was surrendered to us from a pet store. He was very ill and suffered from severe feather destructive behaviour – possibly also as a result of being bullied by the other cockatiels in the enclosure where he was kept in the store. He has been treated by our amazing local avian vet and has made a full recovery in rehabilitation with our KZN director, Kimberlee. He is still quite timid and will need a home where his owners understand and accept his past trauma. A recent vet visit has also determined that he is almost entirely blind, but he manages to maintain an excellent quality of life.
 
If you would like to adopt this little darling, please complete an application form by clicking on the links at the top of this page.
If you have applied in the past (there is no need to apply again) or would like more information, contact his adoption adviser, Kim, on +27 74 999 4641 to review your application in light of this specific bird.
