Sunshine's Info...

Sunshine's Story...
Sunshine or Sunny is an 8 year old lesser sulfur crested cockatoo whose one and only owner passed away unexpectedly. When she came into rescue she had a severe infection and a sick liver. Luckily, with great vet care and her resilient spirit (and thanks to The Parrot Posse and all of you who donated to her extensive health care) she is once again healthy and happy. Her liver is still mildly compromised and she has been prescribed a daily dose of milk thistle for a year. This will ensure she has a long life ahead of her. Sunny is a loving and spirited bird that will blow kisses to get your attention. She loves snuggles and like any cockatoo, is full of mischief. While she gravitates towards men, she is quite happy to take attention from women as well. She was raised with a dog and is fostered in a home with dogs. Sunny is full of life and is an exceptional companion just waiting for a home as perfect as she is sweet!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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