Our Foster Families are people who are experienced with birds and live in a non-smoking environment.
Fostering means that the bird still belongs to the original owner so sometimes it is temporary and sometimes permanent.
Our foster families sign the following statement:
"I am aware I am fostering a bird that may belong to someone else. If this person comes forward, I will allow them to see the bird to see
if it is theirs and possibly to give it up. I will look after the bird until that time as if it was my own, making sure it has food and filtered water every day,
exercise, showers, and vet visits if required, all of which I will pay for. I will let Lost and Found Birds know if I change my address, phone number or email address."
If you are interested in fostering, please fill out the Fostering Questionnaire and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
The priority sequence we decide on foster families is: 1) The person who found the bird.
2) Someone who lost a similar bird or found one and understands the experience.
3) One of our volunteers who has experience with birds of that type.
4) General Public that has experience with birds of that type.
Foster Birds are paired to appropriate Foster Families based on the needs of the bird. Then a house visit is required so
we know the bird will be taken care of in a good home. Our birds will be allowed to come out and fly every day.
