Dr. Burge knows birds! We took her my daughters parrot for a checkup along with trimming of wings, nails & beak. She took such great care of Charco. We will not go anywhere else.
We have gotten 5 members of our flock from Burge Bird Rescue. Such a great organization! They are ethical, humane and helpful. Four of our birds have had medical or special needs issues but we received enough help and guidance to make their care "no big deal" and we've loved them all. I highly recommend donating to Burge Bird Rescue- we do regularly and know our dollars go right where we intend- to the birds!
We have adopted a total of 5 birds from Burge Bird Rescue. Four of them have/had complex medical issues and need/needed special care. These birds would have been left to die by regular rescues but their lives were saved by Dr. Burge and then she waited for the right "forever home" for them. She taught us everything we needed to know to give them excellent care. When we moved to Texas and found a new veterinarian for our flock, our new veterinarian could not believe we have two birds missing upper beaks. He had never seen that before and could not praise Dr. Burge's work enough.
I took my cockatiel to Burge Bird Rescue after I found a growth on her. Not many veterinarians deal with birds in this area, yet alone do surgery on birds. The staff was wonderful and Dr Burge was extremely knowledgeable and just great. She fixed my baby up and I was able to take her home soon after.
The work she does for this community is much needed: the rescue, the avian veterinary services, as well as the continuous education and awareness they provide. Burge Bird Rescue is a gem in Kansas City.
Julie Burge is a wonderful vet and heads Burge Bird Rescue. She assisted us (Miami Valley Bird Club and Rescue) in a court case that she had to testify on our behalf about exotic birds and their care. Her knowledge in this field, helped us win our court case. We have also worked with her rescue in re homing exotic birds that she needed to place. In both cases, she was very professional and went out of her way to make sure that the birds were well taken care of. This rescue is one we will work with in the future.
Burge Burd Rescue does tremendous work rescuing exotic and domestic birds, alike. They go out of their way to help those that others won't, even taking a little boat out to local lakes to rescue the "Easter" ducks set loose by misguided humans. Thank you, Dr. Julie Burge and Burge Burd Rescue!
A remarkable group of people who give so much for the Birds we love. Here is our sweet boy that we adopted from Burge Bird Rescue. Thank you.
Burge Bird has been there for me several times as an avian vet, both with an appointment and in an emergency. I travel about 30 miles to see her because she not only knows what she's doing, but truly cares. She does outstanding volunteer work in the community and is the only avian vet in the area.
This is a top of the line organization . I adopted a conure from them they provide the highest quality service at such a reasonably price . This is why they can always use more donation they truly put back everything back in to help there rescue . Please please help all you can
Dr Julie and her staff are wonderful, caring and compassionate, she has been taking care of our African grey for years and always makes time for our questions and concerns
Working as a volunteer, I saw the love and care that went into every abandoned bird or bird who lost their family through sickness or death. From vet care to being in a safe place to finding the bird a forever home, the staff and volunteers work with love to give the birds what they need. Dr. Burge and Nurse Julie provide great care to the birdie patients and work to keep care affordable because keeping birds healthy is what is important.
