The Saturday morning schedule for grooming is usually full by mid-day on Friday. Please call early in the week if you need a Saturday morning appointment.
Also available for your bird sitting needs is our boarding facility.  Fresh food, proper diets, clean cages, attention by employees only, and a big screen TV to fall asleep to are just some of the features your bird will enjoy here at Tropic Zone.

Pricing includes the cost of basic food (seed and/or pellets, plus morning chop). 
See below for additional fees and charges.

Please book a reservation at least a week in advance, and a month in advance for a holiday.  We don't do boarding reservations online or through email, so please call the store or visit us in person to make your reservations.

ALL BIRDS are REQUIRED to have a avian wellness exam prior to boarding. The vet visit is good for one year from the date of the appointment. Many of the vets are booking several weeks in advance so please plan accordingly if you need a new wellness check. We can let you know that your vet check is expiring when you call to make a boarding reservation, however, due to the thousands of birds in our boarding system, we cannot proactively notify you that you need a new vet check.

Additional Fees and Charges
Long Term Discount - 10% off 30 days or more - If you're boarding for longer than 60 days, ask to speak to the owner about the rate.

For 2 birds sharing the same cage in the size range of Parakeet to Ringneck, there is a 20% discount on the second bird. The first bird pays the regular daily rate, the second bird in the cage will have 20% deducted from the total boarding fee.

We can accommodate smaller birds into larger cages as long as the bar spacing is safe for the bird. The price will reflect a larger bird cage size as deemed appropriate. For example - you can request a regular size macaw to stay in a hyacinth size cage if one is available, but you will pay the hyacinth boarding price. Does not apply for holidays where upgrades are unavailable.

We no longer provide wooden or paper toys in the cages. You must bring one with you or you may purchase one upon drop off for 20% off. Otherwise, plastic/acrylic toys will be provided.

Cages are booked from the top down. If your bird needs to be
in a top cage, please request one when you make the reservation. We try our best to honor this type of request, but when we are heavily booked, we cannot alter other customers reservations to accommodate this at the last minute.

Small birds are welcome to stay in their own cage, however the cage must be clean on arrival. If the cage is dirty there will be a $25 cleaning fee added to the boarding.

$1 per day, per bird charge for the administration of medication.

$1 per day, per bird charge for foods that we do not supply in bulk. This would be Harrisons, Roudybush, Kaytee, or ZuPreem products like Pure Fun, or Smart Select. Daily chop is included unless you specify that your bird is not to receive it.

If you are unable to pick up your bird on the scheduled pick-up date, please give us a call so we can update incoming reservations. Due to the inconvenience it causes other customer reservations, no call/no show pick-ups for birds being boarded in one of our cages will be changed an additional $5 per day late fee.
