Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue gratefully acknowledges these recent grantors. Their financial assistance helped to save and improve the lives of our foster flock, and support our efforts to become a more effective rescue organization. In alphabetical order:
The ASPCA was founded in 1866 as the first humane organization in the Western Hemisphere. The Society was formed to alleviate the injustices animals faced then, and continues to battle cruelty today. Whether it’s saving a pet who has been accidentally poisoned, fighting to pass humane laws, rescuing animals from abuse or sharing resources with shelters across the country, the ASPCA will work toward the day in which no animal will live in pain or fear.
The ASPCA's grant celebrates National Bird Day and supports those organizations providing sanctuary or rescuing and re-homing homeless pet birds.
Banfield Charitable Trust
Tens of thousands of people are confronted with financial hardship or serious
medical conditions that force them to make the difficult decision to give up their pets. Low-income people and seniors are most at risk of being separated from their animal companions yet a growing body of scientific research shows physical and mental health benefits to people with pets in their lives.
Among the top ten animal- and pet-related nonprofits, Banfield Charitable Trust is the only organization that is solely focused on preventing the surrender of pets.
Build-a-Bear Bear Hugs Foundation
The Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation is committed to making life more bearable for children, families and pets, in need of a helping paw. With the sale of each full-sized Bearemy’s Kennel Pals® friend - a collection of Build-A-Bear Workshop® plush dogs - one dollar is donated to domestic pet programs including local animal shelters, stray pet rescue and rehabilitation organizations, and pet education programs around the country. These funds are available to qualified non-profit organizations in the United States and Canada.
