Gussie's Story...
Gussie is a male Normal Gray Cockatiel. He likes to sit quietly on your shoulder or chest but needs some work on "step up." He also enjoys having his neck scratched. Gussie came to us when his owner died suddenly. He is now looking for someone who can spend time with him and give him lots of love.

Gussie's approximate hatch date is unknown, and his adoption fee is $40.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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