Boarding Overview

Welcome to LifeWithParrots! We are a home based business that offers a quality overnight boarding service providing our boarders with up to 12 hours of playtime daily (8am – 8pm) and 12 hours of undisturbed sleep each night. We’ll do everything we can to ensure your bird has the best experience possible and you can feel confident knowing your bird will be properly cared for during their stay.

The main bird room is always kept around 22 degrees Celsius and features a RabbitAir MinusA2 ultra quiet air purifier with customized Pet Allergy Filter to keep the air clean and odor free plus a radio playing music throughout the day for entertainment when they’re not out of their cage. Your feathered companion can also get some outdoor exposure by going on walks to the park on warm days in our LifeWithParrots Pak-O-Bird carriers (disease tested birds only) or in a harness if your bird is currently harness trained.

To prevent spread of avian diseases, we only allow disease tested birds to board in our main bird room. All other birds are required to use a separate room for boarding (at no extra cost), limited private rooms available. We prefer that owners bring their own cage and food to keep change to a minimum, helping to reduce the level of stress on your feathered companion. If you can not transport their cage, we do have limited cages available to use (at no extra cost) but perches and toys must be provided by owner. Small – Medium bird boarding cage measures 31”W x 20-1/2”D x 50-1/2”H and the Medium – Large bird boarding cage measures 62”W x 36”D x 75”H.

What is included during your bird’s stay: Daily cage cleaning, water changes at least three times daily, feeding according to what instructions are given in the LifeWithParrots boarding form and lots of out of cage play time!

Birds can be dropped off and picked up within our business hours (Holidays may affect these hours) and we require a minimum of 48 hour notice prior to dropping off any birds to ensure we have available space. We will do our best to accommodate last minute boarders but we can not guarantee that we will be able to house them.

All birds must meet the following requirements:

  • Be in general good health and tested free of all diseases if they are going to be housed in the main bird room or be using a carrier provided by LifeWithParrots during the boarding period. Plucking/barbering due to stress, habit or hormones is acceptable
  • Be completely weaned for at least 2 weeks
  • Have no open wounds or recent major injuries (occurring within one (1) month before the drop off date)
  • Be harnessed or in a carrier when entering and exiting LifeWithParrots

If you’re interested in boarding your feathered companion(s) with us, please look over and fill out the LifeWithParrots overnight bird boarding information form found on our website under “Bird Boarding” then send it to our email or bring it in with you. Any questions? We’d be happy to answer them through email or you can call/text us anytime between 8am – 9pm at our phone number found on our website under “Contact Us”. Thank you for your interest, hope to see you and your feathered companion soon!
