BAILEY FOUNDATION Overview
* We do not breed or place companion birds with people who breed.
* We do not sell, trade, or use birds in our care for commerce or profit.
* We promote responsible guardianship of all captive birds.
* We promote education on all issues of avian welfare.
* We oppose the sale of un-weaned baby birds to the general public.
* We support and encourage responsible legislation protecting the rights, health, and safety of birds living in captivity.
* We strongly oppose legal/illegal exportation/importation and encourage all countries to adopt legislation, enforcement, and conservation policies to prevent wild birds from entering captivity.
Since July of 2004, we have taken in dozens of birds, from finches to macaws. Many of these birds will probably require extensive rehabilitation due to medical or behavioral problems. Many others have been placed in homes that we continue to monitor. The remaining birds are awaiting for a "Forever Home", a process that involves an application, working with the bird, and the signing of a contract of care by the adopting party.
We anticipate with the effect of the internet, there will be more adoptions as well as more desperate people wanting to give up their birds to our care. Many of these birds will need care for up to 80 years or more, our task is formidable. Space is running out for the care of large birds like macaws and cockatoos. We will need to expand our available space soon. Our long-term goals are to purchase land on which large aviaries can be built to house the various species of birds as well as serve as an educational center. In our current location this is not possible. We do invite people to contact us. We are very happy to share whatever knowledge we have gained with any prospective or current parrot parents.
It is our goal to always have a place for one more bird in need.
