Mickaboo

Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue is a non-profit organization with 501(c)3 status. We spend on average of $8,000 to $10,000 a month on vet care for our birds. We are funded by donations, grants, and adoption fees.  We are staffed entirely by volunteers, so your donation goes directly to providing medical care for our needy rescue birds. If you would like to help us with our cause by donating money we would greatly appreciate it. 

Mickaboo currently has approximately 250 birds in foster care.  Our first commitment is to these birds and their ongoing care.  For this reason, we need to use our regular donations to maintain a cash reserve for them.  As you know, we suspended intake on May 1st, unless we had Angels who were willing to help us "endow" new birds to cover their immediate or future veterinary expenses.

Thanks to Mickaboo's generous supporters, the Angel & Sponsorship programs have been a huge success.  Our Angels & Sponsors have enabled us to take in 64 birds since intake was suspended.  These are birds we would not have been able to help without you.

Keeping track of Angels & Sponsors has become rather confusing!  Because everyone who donates as an Angel or Sponsor is considered an 'Angel' in the eyes of a Mickaboo bird, we are merging the two programs.    


Why Become an Angel to a Mickaboo Bird?
 Unfortunately, many of the birds that come into Mickaboo's care have been injured, abused, neglected or are very ill.  As a result, they need medical attention, behavioral training and extra love and nurturing before we can place them in adoptive homes.  These birds are often times considered unadoptable at shelters and by society in general. We believe that every bird deserves a second chance.  We allow each and every one of our birds as much time as they need to find that special adopter who is willing care for them.  As Mickaboo has grown, and we have taken in more birds from shelters, our monthly vet bills have increased significantly, averaging between $8,000 and $10,000 per month.
 
We understand that not everyone can foster or adopt a Mickaboo bird, but would still like to help.  Becoming an Angel to a bird in need is the perfect way to do that!   You can help us take in birds from shelters or from private surrenderers who are in a financial crisis.  Your donations will help us defray the cost of their sometimes astronomical vet bills while they wait for forever homes.  If you would like to sponsor a bird or find out more about how you can help, please visit their website
