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.
