Hello! My name is Jacob
I am a special needs pet and in need of an experienced adopter.
Fostered by Clairese of Titusville, FL
Jacob is a sweet and friendly Umbrella Cockatoo. He loves attention and will dance and sing with you or for you! He can also say his name in a variety of voices and loves music and playing with his wooden toys. He does not like men however and will bite them. Jacob is fully feathered and has a great appetite; he is being converted from a seed diet to a diet consisting of a variety of pellets, fresh fruits, veggies and nuts. Jacob has had surgery three times, and is a very special needs bird. He will not be adopted out to just anyone as a result. He does require daily cleaning of his cloaca due to the prolapsed surgeries he has undergone, which he tolerates fairly well. Jacob is a mild screamer and will need more work with that behavior. He will require an extremely experienced Cockatoo handler.
Rescue Group Info...
Florida Parrot Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of companion parrots. We strive to educate parrot owners on proper handling and care of parrots. Should someone be unable to keep their bird(s) for ANY reason, we want them to know there is a place to turn, and that they are not alone. It is our goal to provide a safe haven for birds that cannot stay with their owners or birds in need, and then to find those birds permanent forever homes with loving and responsible families.
Our rescues are located in homes through out the state. We will work with the fosters and potential adopters to set up dates and times.
We require an application which is free of charge, an adoption fee which varies on the bird you wish to adopt. We do NOT adopt our for breeding purposes.

Provide parrot owners with a place to bring their birds in the event that they can no longer keep them.
