Hello! My name is Springer

Plenty of my friends are looking for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
Other Pets at Shelter...
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!
Rescue Group Info...
Florida Parrot Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of companion parrots. We strive to educate parrot owners on proper handling and care of parrots. Should someone be unable to keep their bird(s) for ANY reason, we want them to know there is a place to turn, and that they are not alone. It is our goal to provide a safe haven for birds that cannot stay with their owners or birds in need, and then to find those birds permanent forever homes with loving and responsible families.
Our rescues are located in homes through out the state. We will work with the fosters and potential adopters to set up dates and times.
We require an application which is free of charge, an adoption fee which varies on the bird you wish to adopt. We do NOT adopt our for breeding purposes.
Rescue and rehabilitate abused and neglected birds
Veterinary care and treatment for birds in need
Provide parrot owners with a place to bring their birds in the event that they can no longer keep them.
