We Did It!!!

We did it! Thank you SO much!  With the generous help of 51 donors, MickaCoo Pigeon & Dove Rescue has met the challenge of raising $4K and secured a permanent place within the GlobalGiving* online community! With this important step, we have successfully opened an entirely new channel through which to publicize the plight of abandoned and homeless pigeons and doves.

MickaCoo believes any bird that can live free, should live free but we also believe that when timing out at shelters, domestic unreleasable pigeons and doves should have the benefit of a rescue to help them find homes. Euthanasia should not be the solution to their homelessness.

By supporting MickaCoo, you are challenging that approach and supporting an ever-growing compassion. Everybody deserves a chance and, with your help, MickaCoo saves birds that otherwise would have been euthanized. Together, just this year, we placed more than 300 pigeons and doves in wonderful, forever homes. You can read the story of one of our adoptions and see pictures of some of the birds we helped in Home for the Holidays.

And the demand for homes is ongoing. MickaCoo has more than 115 pigeons and doves in foster care, awaiting their forever homes. We are full and have a waiting list of birds that need rescue. Please continue to spread the word about how easy it is to save innocent lives by providing a home to a pair of pigeons or doves.

Your help and support matter! Together, we have earned our place in the GlobalGiving community. Pigeons and doves are no less worthy of compassion and care than any other living creature. 

Thank you!
