All forms must be completed prior to us accepting any bird in our care. This will assure the ability to access the birds' needs. All birds need to come with their current cage to foster a smooth transition.
An intake fee is required with all new intakes. The intake fee may be waived ONLY if the parrot has been vetted within six months and then only as determined by GTL staff.
GTL is a non-profit private exotic bird rescue, dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, health and placement of exotic birds.
You are asking GTL to take ownership and care of your bird.
Caring for these birds, assessing their potential to be rehabilitated, working with problems in behavior, special needs, vet care and of course food and shelter required on a daily basis is expensive.
We ask that you consider a contribution to offset the cost of care for your bird until the time that we are able to place it into an approved home.
Many of the birds that come to us are from true rescue situations, and have not been as fortunate as your bird. Your financial contribution helps us to offset some of the costs incurred with rescue work so we can continue these efforts.
By signing this Parrot Relinquishment Agreement you transfer ownership of the bird described above to GTL Parrot Rescue. In addition you agree to all terms of this agreement. If for any reason you wish your bird to be returned to you (within 10 days), you agree to reimburse GTL for all expenses incurred in caring for your bird, such as veterinary care, food, toys, boarding and overhead expenses. After 10 days the bird will not be returned unless the full adoption process is followed including the fees and requirements set forth in the adoption contract.
You warrant to GTL that you are the sole owner of the bird, have the right to transfer ownership to GTL and that there are no encumbrances on or other ownership of the bird. You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless GTL from and against all actions, claims, damages, losses, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) if the above warranties are incorrect or incomplete, or if you breach this agreement. Ontario law will govern this agreement, and you agree that any litigation arising under this agreement will be brought in a court having jurisdiction in the province of Ontario. You agree, without additional consideration, to sign, acknowledge, and deliver any other documents, and take any action necessary or appropriate and reasonably requested by GTL Parrot Rescue in order to carry out the intent and purposes of this agreement.
