Thanks to your continued support, Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue has been able to continue our work of rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing companion birds. We have accepted 48 and adopted out 65 birds so far this year, while caring for a flock of ~450. (See photos and read stories about many of our birds here.)
YOUR help and that of our many dedicated volunteers are what make the Mickaboo miracle happen. Your donation today to keep the miracle going can go further – a matching gift event is underway today (July 15), 6 am - 9 pm PT. GlobalGiving will match your online donations at 50%, up to $1,000 per donor per project, until GlobalGiving's $115,000 in matching funds runs out. Give early to help ensure YOU get the match for the birds!
Your gifts help birds like Henrietta. Nearly 20 years old, Henrietta came to us with arthritis in her feet and wings. She became sick with a virus that swept through her home’s flock and was hospitalized for nearly two weeks. The virus had caused one of her stomachs to become enlarged and stop working properly. Despite continuing to eat, she nearly starved to death as her weight dropped from 82 grams down to 66 grams. She recovered from the virus and then had surgery to remove a large pre-existing mass inside her crop to prevent future health issues.
Henrietta is now out of the hospital, enjoying time with her cockatiel friends. Her vet bills so far have totaled almost $5,000. The improvement in Henrietta's quality of life - priceless! Please consider taking advantage of today's matching gift opportunity to help Henrietta and our other birds heal.
