Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue
Mickaboo is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 1996 in Northern California. Most of their volunteers and foster birds live in the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento Valley. They are dedicated to rescuing companion birds (parrot-type and other commonly domesticated birds) who have been neglected, abused, injured or surrendered to us. Their goals are:
To ensure that birds in their care will have a safe, loving environment for life.
To educate bird owners on the most current standard of care, so that the medical, emotional, and dietary needs of their birds will be met.
At Mickaboo, their underlying principle is that Every Bird Gets An Equal Chance. Once a bird is in their care, they provide all the medical and supportive care that s/he requires. They do not "triage" birds or spend more money on large species than small. They only euthanize a bird when s/he is suffering without the possibility of recovery. They provide hospice care for terminally ill birds who are not suffering.See more
