ChooChoo's Info...

I am in need of an experienced adopter.

ChooChoo's Story...
ChooChoo is a pretty Lesser Sulphur Crested Cockatoo. Her foster says she is the quietest Cockatoo they have ever seen. She is very tame and sweet. The only thing she says is "hello." Her prior owner acquired her in 2000 from a family member who could no longer care for her. She is on a basic pelleted diet, but she loves cooked noodles, beans, muffins, and just about anything else she has been given.

ChooChoo loves to chew on cardboard and soft wood. One of her favorite pastimes is to sit on your lap and get scritches. Like all Cockatoos she has a "need to chew" and can be destructive. But this is mostly focused on her toys.

Her prior owners were unable to keep her because of an upcoming move. But they describe her as very sweet. Her foster parents heartily agree.

ChooChoo's approximate hatch date is unknown, and her adoption donation is $600.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ChooChoo, a St. Louis Cockatoo was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cockatoo for sale in St. Louis, or seeking a Cockatoo 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 Cockatoo breeders who help with Cockatoo rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in St. Louis paves the way for another one to be saved.
