STAR is an all volunteer, foster-based 501(c)(3) companion bird rescue based in St Louis, MO. Our mission is to improve and enrich the lives of parrots through rescue, rehabilitative fostering, adoption and education.
Please note, due to the quantity of emails that we receive, simply "starting an inquiry" will not receive a reply. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a specific question.
The first step is to fill out an Adoption Application, which can be found on our website. All birds are in volunteer foster homes, and a meeting may not be set up until you are approved to adopt. Our adoption team will process your application and set up a home visit.
All current pets (including any birds cockatiel and larger) must be up to date on yearly wellness exams and any state mandated vaccines.
We do not ship birds, and have a 100-mile adoption radius. We do not adopt to breeders. We are not able to adopt birds into homes that use Teflon product or smoke due to toxicity dangers.
