Richard's Info...

Richard's Story...
Richard is a Pied Senegal Parrot. He is quite tame. He is a member of a group of African parrots known as Poicephalus. These birds are renowned for being “quieter” parrots. No parrot is completely quiet. However, Senegals make great pets for people living in an apartment or condo.

Richard's foster family has noticed something that a prospective adopter should be aware of: Richard seems to dislike dogs. A family without a dog would probably be preferable. Or, the dog would need to be kept completely separate from him.

If you are looking for a companion parrot, Richard would love to meet you. He is playful and loves attention. He is never happier than when he is on your shoulder.

Richard's approximate hatch date is 2001, and his adoption donation is $225.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Richard, a St. Louis Poicephalus (including Senegal and Meyer's) was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poicephalus (including Senegal and Meyer's) for sale in St. Louis, or seeking a Poicephalus (including Senegal and Meyer's) from a breeder in St. Louis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in St. Louis 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 St. Louis 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 Poicephalus (including Senegal and Meyer's) breeders who help with Poicephalus (including Senegal and Meyer's) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in St. Louis paves the way for another one to be saved.
