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.
We adopted our little budgie Burge Bird Resue. We love him! It feels good to rescue a bird that has had a vet exam. To love a pet that needs another chance is a win, win, win situation.
I adopted four parakeets/budgies from Burge Bird Rescue on Nov. 18, 2013. The facility was very impressive: clean, organized, well-lit; knowledgeable staff; wonderful bird room housing a variety of species in appropriately sized cages. Dr. Burge explained each of the four parakeets' health profiles and answered my many questions. Very professional place while also manifesting kindness toward the birds and the human clients. I highly recommend this facility.
I adopted four budgies (parakeets) from Burge Bird Rescue in November, 2013. Dr. Burge was extremely thorough in her communication with me about the birds' history, any potential medical issues, their recent medical tests. I was extremely impressed with the facility (clean, organized, cheery) and the staff (knowledgeable, helpful, efficient). Adopting a parrot is rewarding but can also be stressful, and I felt more confident than I have elsewhere that the birds received top-notch care and attention.
I have adopted three birds from Burge Bird rescue. Since I live more than 2 hrs away they were very nice to let me come up and spend as much time as I wanted to get to know the birds and pick out the best ones for our family. I could not ask for more knowledgable and helpful people. If any of the birds have any issues that need to be dealt with they are upfront with you about everything that you need to do to ensure the correct care of the bird and their adoption fees are more than reasonable . They also sometimes have several used cages for reasonable prices which is a big help when you need a cage for your new friend. It's a great place to get a bird!! Be sure to check them out!
Burge Bird Services does so much does so much for abandon, unwanted and neglected birds of all kind. I have adopted from them and would not have it any other way. All proceeds go to a great cause for everything they do to care for such a great companion. I will always go to Burge Bird Services for all of my pets needs. Thank you for all you do and please continue your services for many years to come.
I met Dr Julie Burge online and amazed how she openly shares her knowledge with everyone. Her heart is in the right place and she is a pro in the rescue world and hers goes 24/7. I found Julie online because she does a vet tip of the day and I have shared her tips on many days. I rescued a couple older male umbrella cockatoos and got online starving for knowledge and found her information helped me on several occasions. People who live around her are lucky to fine such a fine Aviary vet because that is not so easy where I live.
I fell in love with a female Blue and Gold Macaw that had been at Burge Bird Rescue for a year. She was not my friend at first, but with regular visits she grew to like me and then to really trust me. I am so glad I took her home and made her a part of my family!
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.
I wasn't looking to adopt another bird, but when Dr. Julie heard that I have two elderly (9 years old and 11 years old) budgies, she immediately asked if I would adopt a 12-year-old budgie with one bad foot. I couldn't refuse - he was perfect for my household! The volunteers at Burge Bird Rescue have a particular talent for matching adoptable birds with people to love them. Kermit (formerly known as Jule), is a happy little guy getting along very well at my home. Thank you!
Thank you so much for my sweet baby Nico! I'm so happy we adopted him from your rescue. It's great to see a rescue run by people that love and care for birds as much as I do!
Rarely does one get a chance to see any organization that operates with such energy, dedication, enthusiasm, commitment and Integrity as Burge Bird Rescue. Our community is very fortunate to have this wonderful rescue. Please support their incredible work in any way possible.
I met dr Julie Burge and staff in 1995. She is so dedicated to helping healing and house calls, I also have so much respect for all her care and love she provides birds in need. You can count on her for her help whether it's for rescuing birds in need a screening the adopted parents of a bird or owner in need of assistance. Dr Julie Burge and staff are a wonderful ,caring loving rescue organization that should be commended for their devotion.
I just started going to Dr. Burge a few months ago, and I think she is incredible. She obviously knows her stuff, and is willing to give excellent advice to help you with any bird problems that arise. I feel bad for her and the other people that work there, though, because they see so many sad cases day in and day out. Believe me, she and her staff are very much appreciated out here.
The work & dedication of Dr. Julie Burge & her staff can't be measured. They work tirelessly for the health and well-being of our bird-friends.
I volunteered at Burge Bird Rescue for several years before I became crippled. Her love for birds, and all animals is apparent by her countless hours, energy and free services to those in need. Dr. Burge is well-known in the bird community for her rescue efoorts, and I have seen first-hand how she impacts the lives of birds, and their care-givers in a way that benifits all. I've also had the honor to adopt a few precious birds, and they continue to enrich my life!
I have never met an organization more dedicated to the health and well being of animals. They are open 6 days a week, and will even return your phone calls for emergencies on their one day off. I adopted one of my babies from there, and wouldn't take all 3 of them anywhere else for their care.
We have been clients of Dr. Burge for 8 years. I have never met anyone so dedicated to the well being of birds. She works tirelessly for birds that need help for rescue or health issues. I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Burge and Nurse Julie and their staff. We have adopted 3 birds from Burge Bird Rescue and she gave us the history and health issues of each bird. I have a lot of respect for the work they do to rescue birds.
Dr. Julie and Nurse Julie are my heroes, as is their crew of volunteers who also work tirelessly to help abused, abandoned, and homeless birds, dealing with heartbreaking stories almost every day. Each and every bird is given compassionate, knowledgeable and thorough care, whether it be just grooming or life-saving surgery.
I first learned of Burge Bird Rescue several years ago when my Peach Fronted Conure became very ill and am firmly convinced he would not have lived as long as he did without their special care. It was like a breath of fresh air for appointments to be more like visiting with concerned family members instead of the, “wham bam, take a number and stand in line, Ma’am,” attitude so common with other bird vets.
Their dedication to and compassion for bird health and safety is apparent in their website, where they clearly state that they make house calls, (how many vets do that nowadays?) and maintain detailed information on care, feeding and steps that can be taken in case of emergencies.
I’ve since adopted birds from Burge Bird Rescue. They’re the only bird vet I will see.
