BURGE BIRD RESCUE
Geographic areas served: We serve the Missouri and Kansas area
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 will be opening our new Rescue Room thanks to a grant from Pepsi and the donations of hundreds of our supporters. This will be the only faciltiy in the Kansas City area devoted to housing rescued birds while they await adoption. Our capacity will be five times what it was previously, so we will no longer have to turn away any birds for lack of space.
