Review for Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a volunteer with Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue for almost 4 years and throughout that time I have been consistently blown away by their commitment to doing what is best for the vulnerable birds in their care. Mickaboo is a rare treasure, an organization that operates from a base of integrity and never wavers. It is especially amazing when one factors in that birds can't write reviews or donate money while people do (or don't) but Mickaboo never allows a bird's needs to be overshadowed by what a person wants, no matter how much easier that would be. I have a profound respect for the ethics of this organization and am amazed on a daily basis that this ALL volunteer organization can accomplish more of the impossible in a day than many well-funded companies manage in a week. If I ever come back as a bird in need of help, I would only hope I get so lucky as to find my way to Mickaboo.

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

myriad ways.

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

help it to get the word out more about the amazing work it does. Mickaboo is so busy helping birds that it spends very little time helping itself.

Role:  Volunteer & I helped as a general volunteer and then I created a new division- MickaCoo Pigeon & Dove Rescue and now direct 20 something volunteers in support of several hundred domestic/unreleasable pigeons and doves each year.
