Adopting An Avian Roommate

The birds available for adoption through Empty Cages Collective (ECC) have been rescued from abandonment, injury, neglect and other forms of cruelty. ECC recognizes that in a just world where animals are treated with compassion and respect, wild birds would not be kept imprisoned as "pets." Until this day arrives, ECC wants to ensure that the birds we rescue and place will receive quality, life-long care, as well as humane treatment. We do our best to make certain that the highest quality home is found for the animals that have been entrusted into our care. You can get a copy of our adoption application here ECC_Avian_Adoption.pdf or by contacting us at:

Once we receive your completed application, processing will generally take 1 to 5 days. If your application is approved, we will contact you to schedule drop off at your home. This also serves as our informal "home visit." Please be aware that placement of animals is not based on order of receipt of completed application. We are first and foremost trying to best meet the needs of our rescued animals when making decisions regarding their placement.
