BURGE BIRD RESCUE Overview
Our mission is to take in unwanted pet birds, provide them with veterinary care, and keep them as long as necessary to find them forever homes. We never turn away a bird with medical issues, and we accept wild birds like pigeons that are not taken in by any other facility in our area. In addition, we deploy to help the animal victims of disasters like the Joplin tornado, hoarding situations, and birds that have escaped and are flying loose.
In March 2012 we opened our new Rescue Room thanks to a grant from Pepsi and the donations of hundreds of our supporters. This is the only faciltiy in the Kansas City area devoted to housing rescued birds while they await adoption. Our intake doubled, and in 2013 we helped 312 birds, up from an average of 150 per year in previous years.
