Pardon our dust! We are working on
revamping the site.
The Southern Nevada Parrot Education, Rescue & Rehoming Society (SNPERRS), a
nonprofit organization tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal
Revenue Service Code, is managed and operated by volunteers. Our members realize that there
are many reasons why someone may need to give up a pet bird for
adoption; circumstances change for everyone, and simply selling a
beloved pet is not an option for many owners.

The Society initially places birds in foster homes with pre-approved members of
SNPERRS. All birds are immediately vet checked. They are then allowed to acclimate to their new surroundings and to resocialize with the foster family. Details concerning adoptable, health-screened birds are made available via this web site.
The adoption process is relatively uncomplicated; however, only approved members of
SNPERRS may adopt birds through the program. After completing an application, a potential adopter must allow a home visit by the rehoming committee to ensure that the adoption is compatible with the home environment and that the individualís level of experience is appropriate for the specific bird.
Please Note: the SNPERRS rehoming program
includes exotic pet birds (parrots) only. We do not conduct rescue/rehoming
for protected native species or introduced birds, including pigeons,
starlings, or house sparrows. If you have a concern relative to a wild
or introduced species, please contact "Wild Wings," the US Fish &
Wildlife Service or the State Division of Wildlife.
For help with a lost or injured pigeon, please contact Rich at email@example.com
Your cooperation will help ensure that SNPERRS can continue to focus
on what it does best. Thank you!
There is a message board where birds ineligible for our program may be offered for private adoption.
See our LOST &
FOUND section for details of local birds in trouble.
You can email details of any birds that have been lost or found and
they will be added to the page.
As we rehome birds
we will ask the new owners to send us reports of their experiences
and how the bird has settled into their new home.
