PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.

The birds that we place in adoption have been surrendered, abandoned or in some way displaced. They may have been abused or neglected. We make no representations as to the health, behavioral or physical condition of the bird(s). There may only be limited information available regarding their previous environment. If so, we will share with you what information we have. However, you understand the bird(s) is being placed for adoption “AS IS.”
*
Avian medicine is a relatively new discipline. It is possible for a bird to be a carrier of, or infected with a disease that is undetectable with the current tests and tools available today. Therefore, you should quarantine any bird new to your flock. We recommend a period of at least 30 days - 90 would be even better.
*
You are responsible for providing the appropriate food, water, veterinary care, and loving attention. If at any time it becomes in the sole opinion of STAR that the above mentioned conditions are not being met, STAR has the right to reclaim the bird. STAR has the right to review the health & care of the bird, which may entail home visits from time to time.
*
I certify that I have never been charged with or convicted of animal abuse or neglect in Missouri or any other state. I certify that no one in the household where this bird would reside has been charged with or convicted of animal abuse or neglect in Missouri or any other state.
*
I certify that any bird adopted will not be placed into a breeding situation. I also certify that this bird will not be sold, traded or otherwise given away to any third party. I agree to notify STAR immediately if I move or change phone numbers. I certify that I should not be able to or not want to properly care for this bird, or in the event of my death that the bird will be immediately returned to STAR.
*
I agree to indemnify and hold STAR harmless for any damage or loss resulting in my adoption of the bird(s). I also understand that if any of the conditions in this contract are not met, then in addition to all other remedies at law or in equity, I agree to pay as liquidated damages, the sum of $1,000 (one thousand dollars).
*
I understand that this is a legal & binding contract.
