Sam's Info...

Sam's Story...
Sam is a gorgeous, healthy, friendly and extremely well-socialized five-year-old male cockatiel looking for the perfect home. He has a strong, fun, happy and adorable personality. I met Sam three years ago when I was doing a Petraits photo shoot of him and his mom. During the photo shoot, Sam demonstrated for me how he sat on his mom’s head, her shoulder, and her hand … he drank out of a glass, and admired himself in his mirror. He loves to dance to music, and he chirps to birds in CDs or on TV. This is one very lucky bird to have been loved and spoiled as he was. Sadly, his mom passed away last month and poor Sam has been alone and depressed. He has never lived with other pets, and is accustomed to spending a lot of time outside of his cage with his beloved human mom. Sam is hoping to find a similar situation with someone who can continue to adore and spoil him. To meet and possibly adopt Sam, please contact Cheryl at or 312-282-8036. His $75 adoption fee includes his cage, toys, food, favorite mirror, and all his possessions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago 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 Chicago 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 Cockatiel breeders who help with Cockatiel rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
