                                Sponsoring a Mickaboo Bird

Who Are Some of the Birds Most in Need of a Sponsor?



RicRic, Patagonian Conure:  RicRic was originally surrendered to Mickaboo when his owner could no longer care for him. This past New Year's his foster mom realized he was unwell, and he has been under medical care since then for Aspergillosis and bacterial infections. He's not out of the woods yet, but we're doing all we can to get him back to full health!

Sponsors: Ginny Becchine
Kathleen Reding in memory of Buster the Jenday conure.

 Birds who have "graduated" from the sponsor page. They've been adopted and are in wonderful new Mickaboo homes.

Every Bird Gets An Equal Chance.  That's the underlying principle of Mickaboo.  Once a bird is in our care, we provide all the medical care s/he requires.  We do not "triage" birds or spend more money on large species than small.  We only euthanize a bird when s/he is suffering without the possibility of recovery.  We provide hospice care for terminally ill birds who are not suffering.

As you can imagine, this means that some of our birds have very large vet bills.  Your sponsorship funds help cover the costs of veterinary care for these birds in greatest need. Since we do not have paid employees, you can be sure that your donation goes directly to the birds. Why not sponsor or give a gift of sponsorship today?

How can I sponsor a bird?

That's easy!  Just send an email to  Tell us:

(tick)    Which bird you would like to sponsor, or if you would like to sponsor the bird of a particular species in greatest need, the bird of any species in greatest need.

(tick)   Your sponsorship amount and how you would like to donate:  check, credit card, or PayPal. 

(tick)    If you would like to be acknowledged on our website and how:  first and last name, first name and last initial, first name only - city and state added to any of these.

What do I get for sponsoring a bird?

You get a 5 x 7 photograph of the bird, acknowledgment on the website (if you wish) and regular updates about your bird's progress.

Or you can sponsor any bird currently in our care by clicking the Sponsor Me! link listed right under a bird's adoption status.  We just won't be able to provide you with a picture and updates.

Please note!   Our birds' lives are subject to sudden changes. If a bird is removed from the sponsorship program, we may transfer your sponsorship funds to another bird in need. Sponsorship does not imply any legal rights over the bird or its care.
