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.

Target demographics:

unwanted or abandoned pet birds

Direct beneficiaries per year:

312 pet birds

Geographic areas served:

the Missouri and Kansas area


any necessary medical and surgical care, rescue of escaped birds, and adoption services for birds that are ready for new homes.

I have donated to Burge Bird Rescue and will continue to support them because of the tireless work that Dr. Burge does on behalf of birds. She goes out at all times of the day or night to provide rescue and emergency services for birds in need. She lovingly cares for them and restores them to physical and emotional health. She also supports birds through the provision of extensive education regarding birds and bird care to the public utilizing multiple forums and methods. I have rarely seen a rescuer that is as dedicated to animal rescue as Dr. Burge is.
