Mickaboo's recent newsletter described the plight of Pierre the dove, and asked our readers to help fund a surgical procedure to help him walk again. Among the many kind and generous responses we received was a handwritten note from the young sons of a MickaCoo supporter. It said this:
My brother and I have been collecting plastic bottles and cans to earn money. This time we raised $22! My mom said she would double our money if we gave it to someone who needs it. We would like to give it to you to help pay for the foot surgery on your dove. We hope you and monkey can come visit us again soon.
Love, Oliver and Elliott
We are moving forward with the surgery and will give you an update on the results when we can! To learn more about how you can help other birds in our foster flock, see "How to Help" and the MickaCoo site.
