Baby's Info...

Baby's Story...
Hi, my name is Baby. I'm an 8yr old female Quaker - I know I'm a girl 'cause I laid an egg one time about 4 or 5 years ago. I once had a home where I was very much loved, but sadly my owner passed away earlier this year and I lost my home. Some very nice people took me in for a little while, but they had dogs that scared me and thought I'd be happier with a family who were more into birds like me. So here I am, looking for a new home where I can be loved and love someone in return.
I've never lived with other birds before, but my foster mom has some and I'm looking forward to meeting them. I don't mind them being around, but I think I prefer the company of my foster mom and dad more, and I get along with both my foster parents really well - I really like to just sit with them or hang out on their shoulder whenever I can. I really like it when they talk to me and make little kissy sounds - I'll make 'em right back and put my head down just so they can both pet me. They think that's real cute so I ham it up big for them! I can be kind of shy when you first meet me, but be gentle and talk softly to me and I'll warm up to you real quick, and I absolutely LOVE to be snuggled up in a towel while you hold me and preen the feathers on my head that I can’t get to.
Oh, and about my feathers, you may have noticed that I'm missing a few... Ok, a lot actually... but only on my torso and legs - I've left my wings and tail alone... It’s a habit I've had all my life. My foster mom said the vet told her that I may never be able to grow them back at this point, but if you can get by my looks, you'll see that I can be a sweet, loveable little girl who just wants your attention, love, and to be out with you whenever I can be. I have a nice big cage, and my foster mom just gave me lots of new toys and perches. So will you come see me and maybe give me another chance at a forever home?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Baby, a Tampa 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 Tampa, or seeking a Parakeet - Quaker 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 Parakeet - Quaker breeders who help with Parakeet - Quaker rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Tampa paves the way for another one to be saved.
