Adoption

Welcome to our Adoption Page! Animals for Awareness will occasionally have domestic and less exotic critters available for adoption to the right home. Feel free to peruse this page and contact us if any of these wonderful pets interest you. We have made it easy for you by putting our Adoption Application  right here on our website for you. Feel free to download it, fill it out and send it back to us when you’re ready to adopt one of our precious critters! Please note that although we may have them up for adoption on occasion, we do not take in the following animals from the general public: dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, pot belly pigs and iguanas (and a few other animals). Thank you!

Has your Adoption Application already been approved? If so, you’re one step closer to bringing your new family member home! Please download the Adoption_Contract and read it carefully. Fill out as much as you can and bring it with you when you go to meet your new pet. Together with Kim or Vicki you will finish the adoption contract and go over your pet’s history and care requirements. After all questions have been asked and answered by everyone involved and applicable adoption fees paid, you and your pet will be free to go! We will always be available for aftercare support, so you will never feel alone in your adoption adventure!!

We have 2 unusually colored gerbils for adoption. Genders unknown at this time. They cannot be kept together as they fight! Both are very active and responsive to treats. Gerbils make nice pets for older children. Please keep in mind the plastic “tunnel” type small animal cages do not work for gerbils as they chew right through them. You will need to house them in a wire cage or glass tank.  

budgie1 budgie2Here we have 2 lovely females looking for their forever home! These birds are NOT breeders. They are around 2 years old. Not tame, but workable. (we have received pictures from people who adopted budgies from the same group with the bird on their shoulder!) The girls must be adopted together.

 parakeetsWe have a second pair of parakeets available for adoption. This gorgeous male and female are bonded and must go together. These are NOT breeders-they are around 2 years old. Not tame, but workable. (People who adopted others from this group have sent pictures of them sitting on their shoulders!) They are waiting for their forever home!

doubleyellowheadsammySam was brought over after his owner passed away and no one in the family could deal with him. As you can see in the picture, Sam has an import band on, which makes his at least 25-30 years old. We have had Sam for a month now, so he has begun to settle in and  has become more animated. He does talk—Good Morning! –What’s Up Doc? –all sorts of things! So far he does not appear to be hand tame, but we are still working with that. You must have previous big bird experience, as an older Amazon is NOT a good choice for your first big bird!
