    Good evening, we have just become new members, I have been on this site for 6 months beforehand doing my research, and as a family we have come to the conclusion that we would like to safehouse and maybe foster in the future when the right bird finds us, however being all the way down in Cornwall where there seems to be far and between parrots needing re-homing i think we are a long shot of helping.

    My main question is help i cant find a ACO for Cornwall on the contact on a manager who covers a lot of areas, please advise who to contact at current time so we can get the ball moving.

     

    Regards

    Geraint

    The best person to ask would be David Vickery. He is on here very regularly and has a wealth of knowledge.
    Welcome and well done to you for doing research hopefully a bird will come your way soon😆😊😀😁

    Hi im looking to rehome a parrot pref a female african grey but would be open to other species. Was going to buy a bird but would like to try and offer a bird in need a home if possible. How does the rehoming process work and how long does it take if you find a suitable parrot. Cheers

    Hi everyone, I have recently joined Birdline and have submitted an application, could someone please let me know how long the process normally takes and when I am likely to hear about my application, just in case I have not submitted it correctly. THanks Allison

    Hi Allison, I assume you're a Member? Rehoming takes some time I'm afraid. If you feel your not sure your application has arrived, email the enquiries, and they will take it from there.
    Good luck,
    Doddie

    Hi likewise. We joined at the end of August after seeing the stand at the Rudgwick Country show and talking to the volunteers. We joined and paid the membership fee, and contacted the helpline but haven't had any kind of feedback at all.

    Help!

    Robbie2129, first you need to join as a Member. This will cost you £25 per year. Once joined, this entitles you to apply for any bird on the Rehoming List. Joining and applying can both be done on-line. Yes, it can take a good while. We are very careful where we place our birds. The pickier we are, the more successful the Fostering. Please see the website for lots of information.

    7nhp Garrett, please remember that we are all volunteers. As such, we all have other committments, too, so things take time. You will be contacted soon. I will contact your ACO and things will move on from there. If you have questions, pm me and I'll do my best to answer them.

    Many thanks for letting us know. Hope you didn't think I was being pushy as it wasn't meant like that. We met Mel at Rudgewick and she was lovely. We have thought about acquiring an African Grey for a long time and the family are seriously badgering me!

    Mel is lovely. I believe she'll be in touch soon. Getting a bird takes time, so please don't get disheartened. The more care we take placing a bird, the more successful it is. They're all individuals, so we are very careful where they go.

    Not disheartened - just getting deafened in one ear! My daughter is working hard to become a vet and is completely mad on animals. She is a young farmer and goes to the Kent show with her sheep (Jasper). Next year she is going with her cow. Ever tried to by a grooming kit for a cow? Pets at home don't quite go there!
