Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Many pets are given up because their owners are no longer able to care for them, financially or behaviorally. We rescue birds that are surrendered to us, that shelters turn away, that are found in empty apartments and foreclosed homes and even dumpsters, or that were released into the wild completely unable to survive on their own. Most animal shelters are designed to house cats and dogs, and are unable to accept or care for the needs of domesticated birds like parrots, thus needing to surrender

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1) To ensure that birds in our care will have a safe, loving environment for life.
2) 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.

We provide free bird care education classes to the general public via several monthly bird care classes, our website and online newsletter, and 1-1 via phone calls and emails.

We put potential adoptors through an eligibility process to ensure they understand our standards for responsible bird care, and have a suitable environment for their bird(s).

Our adoption contracts require adoptors to return their adopted bird(s) to Mickaboo should they become unable to care for the bird at any time during the bird's life.

Historically, we have been able to serve 1000 birds annually, and educate ~400 people in our classes. We have additionally attended or hosted ~35 public events per year.

Anecdotally, we hear our class participants tell us they are better informed after they have taken our class, even if they are an experienced bird owner. We sometimes also hear they have decided to NOT take in a bird as a pet because of what birds need - and we believe that to also be a valid outcome.
