Cockatiel Rescue: About Us

Avian Rescue (ARC) is a non-profit, public benefit corporation committed to helping save the lives of all birds, one branch is known as Cockatiel Rescue (CR) and is devoted to saving and preserving those colorful, and talkative Cockatiels. ARC has 501(c)(3) IRS tax exempt status, if you would consider donating time, materials, or money. ARC is an approved participant in the United Way of the Bay Area Campaign, the California State Employee's Charitable Campaign, and the Combined Federal Campaign. Our main ARC web page has a PayPal link for donations. This web page is dedicated to CR with its  home base in California. CR is loosely affiliated with over 300 rescue groups throughout the US (see a list on our web page here) and works closely with local animal shelters in the western US to provide a safe haven for Cockatiels that have become lost from their homes, or need relocation until safe and suitable homes can be established.

The listings below have been taken from call-ins, emails and various other lost and found sites. The date and/or description of the cockatiel may not be totally accurate, therefore if it could be yours, please call or email the individual shown and ask about the tiel.

Due to the automatic closing after 7 days of the opening of a listing on Craigslist, our lists do not include Craigslist addresses, HOWEVER you should check your local Craigslist for any current listing.

To check on our Cockatiels, visit our Aviary website at CR Aviary
