Tinker's Info...

Tinker's Story...
Tinker is a Blue Crowned Conure, who was found outside in June of 2012, and surrendered to STAR. Since he was found outside, we don't know much about his age or sex. He's quite the talker and will sit on your finger when he's away from his cage. He's fairly cage territorial, if you put your hand in his cage, but then many birds are.

Tinker likes to hang onto the side of the inside of his cage and will take food from your fingers. When offered a new food he says, "What's that?" He will let you tickle his belly and even says, "Tickle, tickle, tickle!" With a little time and patience Tinker will make a great addition to your family.

Tinker's approximate hatch date is unknown, and his adoption donation is $200.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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