Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue is a non-profit organization with 501(c)3 status. We spend an average of $15,000 to $20,000 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. 

We accept donations online through Network for Good from either your credit card or checking account. It is quick and easy, and best of all it is safe and secure.

If you prefer to mail us a check or money order, you can mail it to: P.O. Box 697, San Jose, CA 95106-0697.

You can now also make your tax-deductible donation through PayPal:

And remember any matching gift programs your employer may offer, to double or triple the effectiveness of your donation!

Thank you for your support!
