Mission: Mickaboo was founded in 1996. Our mission is very simple: To provide protection for those who, by no fault or choice of their own cannot help themselves, and depend on humans for their care.

To ensure the highest quality of life for our companion birds.

To educate the bird owning public on the most current diet, health and general care information.

Geographic areas served: Northern California, from the San Francisco Bay Area up to the Sacramento area.
Programs: Mickaboo holds free, regularly scheduled bird education classes throughout the Bay Area. At the classes, we talk about proper avian diet and care, symptoms of illness, emergency first aid, the importance of vet care, general husbandry, taming and training, and dangers in the home. Mickaboo also offers special advanced bird care classes and seminars on topics such as foraging. Mickaboo also holds adoption fairs throughout the year, where the general public has a chance to come meet some of our wonderful birds.

I can't believe such wonderful organization exists. I recently found out about Mickaboo, and Mickacoo when I volunteered to transport ill pigeon to Elizabeth. She overwhelmed me with so much fascinating information about doves and pigeons that it has greatly helped me increase my knowledge, and my drive to provide them with better care. I now have a better understanding about birds overall. Her dedication to these birds is truly touching. I don't know what I would have done without her. Not only did she give me tips and advice about doves and pigeons, but will also foster and take in birds that need rescuing(if they have the capacity-Mickaboo/coo seem to rescue everyday!), as well as use her own money to take care of their vet bills when they are sick or injured. All this is unpaid time and work, and if you ask me, she should be getting paid for this!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I read the Mickacoo Newsletter. I always get positive feedback from people that adopt from this organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would probably vouche for someone to get paid for doing this. This organization is very necessary, and I would hate for it to slowly go away due to lack of funds.
