Springer's Info...

I am a special needs pet, not good with kids, and not good with birds.

Springer's Story...
Springer is a 19 year old female cockatiel with special needs. She has arthritis and must be on daily medicine for the rest of her life (Metacam). Springer MUST be in a cage alone with no other birds and though she does not mind other birds being in the house, she does not want them on, in or around her cage - so she will only be adopted into a home where care will be taken with her placement and her needs. Prior to coming into FPR, she had been caged with another species of bird which traumatized and bullied her, causing injury. Springer is one of the most loving cockatiels anyone could ever ask for! She LOVES to have her head scratched (she cannot lift her leg to do it herself) and she will melt your heart. She does not move quickly and cannot climb birdie ladders because of her arthritis, but she loves to perch on your shoulder while you may be watching TV or reading a book. Springer’s balance is a bit off so if you have her on your shoulder, she does best when you are sitting and still with her and giving her lots of loving. Springer is offered a variety of food including pellets, veggies, fruits and some seeds. Springer also has only specific toys she will play with. Springer is looking for a loving home with someone who will spend time giving her lots of love, head scratches, and will be very careful and dedicated in regards to her care and comfort!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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