Please note that we are unable to process Sponsored Adoption Christmas Orders no later than three weeks before December 25th 2011.
You can adopt for yourself or a friend, perhaps as a gift, one or more of NLPR's dependent birds. Your sponsored adoption fee will go toward the care of your chosen bird. There are two types of 'Sponsored Adoptions' available:
- Standard Sponsored Adoption - £25:
- We will send you a Certificate of Sponsored Adoption a special pen and a framed 5 x 7 inch photograph of your chosen parrot and information sheet about him.
- Custom Sponsored Adoption - £45:
- As well as the items listed above we will send you a NLPR logo mug and address labels showing your sponsored parrot (5 sheets).
By sponsoring one of our birds you will be making a valuable contribution to that animals welfare at NLPR. Whilst NLPR will always provide for their food, equipment and veterinary care, your sponsorship will help ensure that we are able to continue maintaining the best possible conditions.
Sponsorships can be purchased from our Gift Shop.
We have the following beautiful parrots on our sponsored adoption scheme:
Fred arrived at the centre on March 30 1995. His previous owner had leg-chained him to a stand for 19 years! He spent the last nine of those years in a bathroom, on the same stand with a 12-inch perch and leg chain with nothing to do. Fred's health was very poor. He was suffering from a calcium and vitamin A deficiency and weakness of the muscles. He also has a developing cataract in his right eye due to being hit with a newspaper and had incurred psychological problems. Fred is now very healthy and active. He is our VIP.
It is with our deepest heartfelt sadness that Fred transcended to the glorious Rainbow Bridge on Tuesday, 6th August 2013. Fred was 42 + years of age, by his captive years. We had him in our loving care for 18 years. He is and always will be deeply missed. Fred leaves a huge void in all our hearts.
Fred's six month illness is documented on the NLPR fb where images and clips show him playing!
