Watermelon's Info...

Watermelon's Story...
Watermelon is a gorgeous Peachfaced Love Bird who is at least ten years old. This little guy loves toys with bells; one minute he will bat, chew and squabble at the toy bell, the next minute he will cozy up to the bell, letting it rest on top of his head. He also enjoys almost daily bathes. Watermelon arrived at STAR because he didn’t receive enough attention at home. He was once very affectionate towards people, but is currently not hand tame. His foster mom is working to get him used to human attention again. Currently, he will eat millet from a person’s hand and he is starting to feel confident enough to step out of his cage. These are both great first steps. With time, he may again live up to his species namesake.

Watermelon's approximate hatch date is 2003, and his adoption fee is $40.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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