GlobalGiving Matching Campaign Helps - A Little at a Time

Last update: April 8, 2017, 8:56 amYolo Grey

Our collective efforts resulted in $4,298 raised. THANK YOU!  That's about 3 days' worth of our veterinary expenses.  Many many thanks from Yolo Grey (pictured here), the rest of our 500+ rescued birds in our foster flock, and our many dedicated volunteers.  Your help makes all the difference to their lives.

Final update:

QuitaThe final results are in!  Together we raised almost $38,000, blowing past our $30,000 fundraising goal! I am humbled by and grateful for the outpouring of generosity this represents - enough to almost pay for a month's average veterinary costs incurred by our rescue flock of over 500 birds.

Our volunteers and birds are incredibly thankful to you.   We hope to see many of you at our upcoming Holiday Party in Alameda on December 3!

Silicon Valley Gives online giving event - 5:50 pm update

Thanks to the support of over 50 of you, we have raised almost $6K toward our $15K fundraising goal.  Your funds pay for urgent medical care for birds like Jasmine, a Jazminefeisty 36+-year-young Blue and Gold Macaw who came to us about a year ago with several old, untreated fractures in her legs and wings, and Papillomatosis.   She can now hold her wings over her head - and has been able to fly! Jasmine has brought much joy to her foster parent's home.
