They are very friendly and knowledgeable. My husband and I recently adopted two GCCs from this Rescue. We also board our birds there when we are traveling out of town. They have very affordable prices and a vet right on site. I highly recommend Burge Bird Rescue!
Burge Bird Rescue cares deeply about birds. The team does an amazing job of offering a temporary home to birds in need, giving them superior care, and finding them forever homes. We are very grateful to have found our newest family member, Taco, through this excellent nonprofit, and we highly recommend supporting their great efforts!
Dr. Burge is fantastic with all types of birds! We were fortunate to have found her when we lived in Missouri to care for our Moluccan Cockatoo and cockatiel. We adopted another Moluccan from her and have a very happy flock! Burge Bird Rescue cares about each bird they rescue and helps you find the right match for you and your family.
I live over an hour away from this place and don't think twice about making the drive out there with my 3 cockatoos. One of my birds has a beak that doesn't grow right and a toe nail that grows sideways and I know that she will do a great job of keeping them in great shape so my girl doesn't have any problems eating and getting around. She has seen and done it all when it comes to bird issues. She is the expert that I trust. She is also the go to person for birds who have been abandoned in the wild by people too. She has braved more lakes and ponds for ducks in need then most would ever get into. She accepts all birds who owners wish to dump and provides them with excellent care and boarding free of charge. If they can not be adopted out, she still provides a great life for them. No matter how much they add on to their bird rooms, it seems there are always more birds in need to fill any open spaces. They are a great charity that really helps birds in need. Even if it means packing up and going to disaster areas to lend a hand. Dr Burge is one you can always count on.
This rescue does great work for the birds who need them. They are not afraid to help any bird be a pet or wild bird who needs their help. I have seen them save birds that others have long given up on. They rescued ducks who were dumped in public, one with an arrow in it. Helps people who have lost their pets, take in all needy birds, provide great information to people who have and want birds, travel all over to help where they are needed. Provide a great temporary home to many many birds with special needs and care requirements with very little help. Julie Burge has super long days, and does them without complaining, she is great and deserves the extra help.
I had a bird that got very sick and i didnot want to take it to my usual vet. I called burges and got right in i found out the bird had a tumor and i know i didnt have enough to pay forte surgury,they gave me an option to surrender the bird so it can get the surgury to save its life, jm thankful for burges because i knew she had a hope of living longer even though i could not afford the surgery. I know she found a home that could take care of her special needs.
Burge bird services provides great veterinary care to its patients (like my Waffles!) and to all of the birds that it rescues.
They have helped place chicks two years in a row that people purchased and then couldn't keep. The hens and roosters are now living out their lives in a great place!
Awesome vet prices for birds, with an experienced avian vet, who also runs a rescue! Awesome place!
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.
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.
