Veterinary Pre-Screening
PLEASE NOTE! For the safety of your bird and all the birds in the rescue, it is important for NEAR to do everything possible to ensure the health of birds entering our facility. We strive to have every bird recently seen by a vet and tested for bacterial infection (Gram Stain), Psitticosis and Psitticine Beak and Feather Disease (PBFD).

If you have veterinary records for your bird, please provide them at the time of relinquishment. If you don't have a vet or can't get to one, we can obtain the screening services for $55.00.

We desperately need donations and other financial assistance to provide health services for the birds we take in, however if you cannot afford to have your bird vetted, we will still approve the surrender.

NOTE: YOU WILL NOT BE TURNED AWAY BASED ON ABILITY TO PAY FOR VETERINARY CARE!



Please consider providing a donation NEAR to help defray the cost of health screenings -- but understand that a donation IS NOT REQUIRED in order to complete the surrender.
