Sunnie's Info...

I am not good with birds.

Sunnie's Story...
Sunnie is an elegant 18 year old female Lutino Ringneck. Indian Ringnecks are from the parakeet family and they are hardy, and can live up to 30- or 35 years. Sunnie has beautiful yellow feathers with pink eyes and a red beak, hence her name! Sunnie is a female and therefore, does not have the characteristic ring around the neck.; she is all silky yellow, and extremely sweet. It takes her few minutes to get used to new people and then she is asking for scratches on her head, neck and under her beak. When you scratch her, she makes a cute little voice of happiness and content. She is a real lover and very funny. She is friendly and steps up easily, and she feels very comfortable with people. Her favorite phrase is “Hello, pretty birdie.” Sunnie loves baths in a shallow container on top of her crate as you can see from the photo; she is used to kids and dogs as well. She seems to prefer women over men. She was in a home with a cockatiel before and was aggressive towards that bird, so it is best that she either be adopted into a home without other birds or into a home where she will have plenty of space away from physical contact with other birds.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sunnie, a Tampa Ringneck was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Ringneck for sale in Tampa, or seeking a Ringneck from a breeder in Tampa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Tampa 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 Tampa 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 Ringneck breeders who help with Ringneck rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Tampa paves the way for another one to be saved.
