Every pet deserves a loving and respectful home: please only consider acquiring a pet if you will be able to take care of its long-term needs. Also, consider choosing your animal companion from a shelter, where there are so many wonderful furry friends who need a forever home.

Cockatoos belong to the family Cacatuidae, and are divided into 21 species. They are native to Australia, Australasia, Indonesia, the Solomon Islands and New Guinea.
