Phoenix's Info...

Phoenix's Story...
Phoenix is a Quaker Parrot, 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, but we believe him to be young, perhaps two years old or so.

As time goes on, Phoenix is becoming more vocal, enjoying whistling and making kissy noises. When you make a kissy noise to him he does it right back! He's not much of a snuggler, but he does like to be petted. He seems to like kids and other birds yet isn't crazy about other animals, like dogs, cats, and Guinea pigs.

Most Quakers are quite cage territorial, but Phoenix is not quite to the extent other Quakers are. He may lunge if he doesn't want to be taken out of the cage, but he doesn't bite, and he likes to be petted when on top of his cage. He's a very good-natured and sweet bird.

Phoenix's approximate hatch date is unknown, and his adoption fee is $100.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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