My story

Hi, my name is Papua! That's not a name you hear every day, is it? Like my name, I am a pretty unique bird. I am a fully feathered medium Sulphur-crested cockatoo and am absolutely gorgeous (if I do say so myself). I have definite likes and dislikes when it comes to humans. If you're lucky enough to be liked by me, I give lots of love in return. I love a good phone book to chew on and an occasional paper bag is lots of fun too. Like many of the other cockatoos around here, my favorite treat is almonds and I also love almond butter sandwiches. While I don't talk too much, I do say an adorable 'Bye, bye!' You'll have to stop by sometime to hear it.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

All of our animals have an individualized fee associated with their adoption which is based upon the vet fees incurred. Please contact us for an adoption application. There will then be a phone interview, home inspection, and then you will visit with the birds to help determine which bird is appropriate for your home.

Go meet their pets

Currently, you can meet our pets online at http://rescuethebirds.org/content/section/6/32/. Once you have submitted an application and had both a phone interview and home inspection, you will be invited to come meet some of the birds in person.
