From Intake to Adoption
The most important part of bringing home a new feathered friend is the avian exam. This exam is essential to ensure the health of the new bird. It also protects any current avian members from possible diseases being carried by the new addition. Never assume that a bird who appears healthy IS healthy.

Here at Wings of Hope, we follow a strict procedure for ALL birds brought into our program.

The new bird exam may include, but is not limited to the following:
A complete Physical exam (including weight)
Fecal (parasites) and cloacal cultures
DNA Testing (to determine gender)
Disease testing (by an outside lab) to include the following: Beak and Feather, Psittacosis (aka Chlamydia), and Pacheco's (aka Herpes)
Wing Feather and Nail Trimming
While Wings of Hope does not provide a specific health guarantee, we do not allow any bird to be adopted unless he/she is healthy. If any bird that comes into our program requires medical treatment, we provide that treatment prior to adoption. All adopters get the original copy of the negative disease test results when they adopt their bird. All treatment is included in the adoption fee. A fee is not raised if the bird required additional vet treatment. We follow a set adoption donation scale and adjust it down according to the temperament, supplies, etc. All birds are adopted with a cage and all supplies unless otherwise specified. We follow up all adoptions for a period of 1 year. We do adoption updates at 1-2 weeks, 2 months, 6 months, and 1 year. Wings of Hope stands behind each and every bird that we adopt out. If a problem arises, WOH will ALWAYS take a bird back. We will also work with an avian behaviorist, if necessary, for our problem birds prior to adoption. We currently band all incoming birds and are looking into microchipping as well.

Though we don't claim to be experts, we do have a lot of collective knowledge in our volunteer database, with over 150+ years of combined bird ownership between us. We are constantly striving to improve and update our knowledge. We have never refused a bird, and we don't plan to start anytime soon. We take in all birds from finches and canaries to macaws and cockatoos, and everything in between.
