MickaCoo Pigeon & Dove Rescue (a project of Community Initiatives)
April 16, 2013

Domestic pigeons and doves are gentle, charming, quiet, affectionate pets. They are also among the most misunderstood and maligned. Fortunately for them, Elizabeth Young saw their beauty and their vulnerability, and set about forming MICKACOO, a bird rescue group dedicated to saving and rehoming these deserving birds. Anyone who meets her recognizes her passion and her integrity - and indeed many hundreds of Fantail Pigeons, Homing Pigeons, all white KIng Pigeons, and ring neck doves owe tier lives to Mickacoo and its hardy band of dedicated volunteers. They are well worth supporting.

Oasis Sanctuary Foundation, Ltd.
November 4, 2012

Visiting the Oasis is a powerful experience. The parrots are amazing! Many of them are healthy enough to be housed outdoors in huge cages with other parrots where they can be fly and play and be "real birds" in all their beauty. Seeing the flock of macaws flying free in the 40" x 100" aviary brought tears to my eyes (and their website has a webcam so you can see for yourself). There are also flocks of the smaller parrots living joyfully in flight cages (cockatiels, quakers, lovebirds etc). Of course there are also many birds who are not strong enough to be housed outside - these birds live in a huge bird barn where they are usually housed in big cages with another bird of their own species. There are many play areas in the "bird barn" where they can come out for supervised play. THE STAFF IS AMAZING - totally dedicated and highly skilled. They know the names and story of each bird there. As a volunteer there is felt welcome and appreciated, and got lots of good direction as to how to be helpful. THIS PLACE IS A MIRACLE IN ACTION AND DESERVES YOUR SUPPORT!
