Ruby's Info...

Ruby's Story...
Ruby is a 24 year old Goffin Cockatoo that came to us due to foreclosure. Her owner sat her in front of the house in a box for us to pick up, so we don't have a lot of information on her. She seems very shy, but not aggressive, so she may tame down and be very loveable. She certainly is hoping for a better home! Our birds are not available for breeding and we do not ship birds, so you must travel to our south Kansas City area facility. Potential adopters must call 816-356-4700 for an appointment, and must fill out an adoption application and pass a screening interview to ensure that our birds are going to a safe home. There is usually a 48 hour waiting period after your interview before you are allowed to adopt because we want people to take time and think thru their decision.

Adoption fee for this bird is $250

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ruby, a Grandview Cockatoo was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cockatoo for sale in Grandview, or seeking a Cockatoo from a breeder in Grandview.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Grandview already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Grandview breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Cockatoo breeders who help with Cockatoo rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Grandview paves the way for another one to be saved.
