Cockatoo for adoption in Shawnee Mission, Kansas - Tommy

Tommy's Info...

I am a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, and not good with kids.

Tommy's Story...
My name is Tommy and I am a Goffin Cockatoo, one of the smaller members of the cockatoo family. I have had some rough experiences in life and I am shy of people. I do better with women. I have an area on my head where I was plucked by another bird. I am looking for a loving home with an experienced owner to help me get over my past. I eat pellets, fruit and veggies and nuts for treats. The adoption fee for Thomas is $450.

Tommy is sponsored by Christie Sonner.

Our Adoption Process...

Our rescued parrots live in foster homes, are treated like companions (pets) and rehabilitated if necessary, therefore we have no shelter building. All of our birds stay in our volunteers' homes as fosters. We have found that this provides them with the best environment for successful rehabilitation. Because our birds are in private homes, they are only able to receive visitors by appointment. This is set up after an application has been filled out and a home visit performed. Our adoption process does take some time, generally two weeks. Our priority is not to have a speedy process, but a careful one that ensures proper placement of our companion birds. Multiple changes can be difficult for the bird, and we wish to ensure their safety.
Beak n Wings is not a source to acquire free animals. The adoption fees we charge help us defray costs we incur when providing for the birds in our care. It costs a lot to feed each bird an appropriate diet, and provide appropriate cages, toys, and veterinary care. In fact, veterinary care is usually our largest expense. The exact fees depend on the species of bird and are listed with the birds description.
