2018 Quita Challenge Grant ends SOON!

Final Update: 1/1/2019

You did it!  Through your collective efforts, you raised $24,600 - just about a half month's worth of our vet bills at current run rates - and used up all of the Quita Challenge Grant funds.  More importantly, you laid a financial foundation for the beginning of the new year, enabling us to meet the ongoing medical needs of our rescue flock.

As we head into 2018, please remember that regardless of how tax laws are written, these magnificent creatures will continue to need YOUR assistance to heal and find loving permanent homes.  Thank you for joining with us as we move forward into the future. 

GlobalGiving's #GivingTuesday Helps Mickaboo's Birds!

FINAL RESULTS:  Nov 28, 11:20 pm PT

#GivingTuesday is over - and we've met our fundraising goal!  Thanks to you, we raised $10,397 (including matching funds). That's just about enough to pay for a week's worth of our veterinary expenses for our flock of 650 birds!

Our birds, the volunteers who care for them day in and day out, and our Board of Directors are grateful for your outpouring of generosity.

Oregon Rescue Fundraiser - Now through Monday, June 12, 2017

Final update:

With MANY thanks to our numerous and generous supporters, we collectively gathered $4,773 toward the medical expenses of the birds involved in the Oregon Rescue and their many feathered colleagues in our rescue flock. Our flock's vet bills this month are expected to top $40,000, so these funds will be put to use quickly.

The Oregon Rescue birds made their 10-hour journey to California yesterday.  Both birds were great travel companions; the African Grey whistled (in tune!) with the human driver in a cross-species duet for much of the time.
