Adopt a bird

​Whether you're looking for a cockatiel, a cockatoo, or some bird in between, EBR has a great selection of available birds ready to join your family!

Give a bird the gift of a forever home

Adopting a pet can be an exciting and important decision for individuals and families alike. Exotic birds provide homes with so much fun and long-term companionship. Their intelligence, beautiful colors, quirky dispositions, and occasional feistiness make them rewarding pets for many.

Adopting a bird through EBR is simple! If you're interested in adopting, just follow the steps outlined below and ​you will breeze right through. 

Adoptive homes must be within a reasonable distance of Portland or Eugene, OR. We rarely conduct adoptions more than two hours away or across state lines. Keep this in mind if you choose to continue. 

How to Adopt


  1. Bird Care Class: Start by taking our free online class for the latest in bird care and veterinary recommendations. Take class here. 

  2. Questionnaire: Once you pass the Bird Care Class, you will be emailed an adoption questionnaire within 72 hours to fill out. This is our way of getting to know you and helping you find your next feathered family member.

  3. Home Inspection: From the info indicated on your questionnaire, we will contact you to schedule a virtual home inspection. 

  4. Connect: Our Adoption Coordinator will email you to discuss preferences and help you find the right birds. They will connect you with foster families and you can schedule meetings. See our available birds here.

  5. Visit Birds: Meet birds in their homes to find the perfect match. 

  6. Adopt: Once you find the bird of your dreams, our Adoption Coordinator will email you an Adoption Agreement to sign, and a PayPal invoice for the adoption donation.
