Fostered by Darlene of Thonotosassa, FL
Hello Bird fanciers; you have seen people that age so well that they do not look like their age? This is the case with our sweet Goffin's Cockatoo, Fletcher. He is 32 and does not look or act like it, even the vet was very stunned when he went for his annual physical. Because of his age he is very level headed and will be a great addition to your family when you gain his trust. He comes from a background where he was not handled very much and we are working to correct this, his new foster was able to get him to step up and hold him for about a hour on his 1st day in her home. He craves neck scratches and if no one is available to do it, he will take a Popsicle stick and scratch his own neck. All he asks from you is Love and Companionship. Won't you please take the time to read about Goffins and how they will fit into your life, or better yet, because he is not a typical Goffin, please ask us any questions you have about him as we are always happy to answer!
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.
Rescue and rehabilitate abused and neglected birds
Veterinary care and treatment for birds in need
Provide parrot owners with a place to bring their birds in the event that they can no longer keep them.
Educate new & current parrot owners on proper care & handling of their companion parrots.
