Celebrate & Donate! MickaCoo Earns 30% Bonus 6/13!

Your Support Makes a Big Difference!
Your Support Makes a Big Difference!

Wednesday June 13th is Pigeon Appreciation Day!

You are already making a life-saving difference for birds that, without your support, would be routinely killed in shelters. Your support means birds like little Opal, so sick and brave and doomed at a shelter can be cared for and restored to health and adopted into wonderful homes (shown above in Before & After MickaCoo photos).

MickaCoo relies on your donations to continue this effort and we are in urgent need of your support. We can save, on average, one bird for every $250 donated.  This Wednesday, your donation can earn an additional 30% bonus through GlobalGiving and help ensure that MickaCoo can help the next little Opal that needs us.

This Wednesday June 13th is Bonus Match Day at GlobalGiving and, coincidentally, Pigeon Appreciation Day!

Please celebrate these smart, loyal birds with a donation to MickaCoo Pigeon & Dove Rescue. Online donations made to MickaCoo at on 6/13 will earn a 30% matching bonus up to $1,000 per donor until matching funds run out! (There is $75,000 available and funds usually run out by midday.) 

Your generous support on behalf of these overlooked, under-served birds is what makes the impossible happen for them. If you are able, please make an online donation to MickaCoo this Wednesday, 6/13. (The campaign starts at midnight EST so 9 PM on Tuesday 6/13 for those of us on the West Coast.) And please- share this request with your friends and family. Your compassion is contagious. 

Thank you. Truly. Your support is incredibly appreciated.
