You're Invited to Mickaboo's Spring Fling

Rainbow, rescued Jenday Conure
Rainbow, rescued Jenday Conure

You are cordially invited to Mickaboo's Spring Fling, a casual lunch and fundraiser for Mickaboo's supporters and volunteers.  This year's event will be in Fremont, California on June 3, from 11:30 - 3:30.  See more information and RSVP here.

Your financial support and participation in events like the Spring Fling help birds like Rainbow, pictured here.  Rainbow is a six-years-young Jenday Conure who was surrendered to a local shelter after too many neighbors complained about Rainbow's vocalizations. (The owner lived in an apartment building.) Jendays are beautiful but loud; the bird care classes we offer to the general public aim to prevent surrenders like Rainbow's by helping people better understand what having a bird means, before they acquire their pet bird.

Rainbow's situation was exacerbated in that he was rarely allowed to leave his cage, had no friends of his own kind, and  lacked meaningful interaction with his human.  Birds are intelligent animals who need mental stimulation.  Without such, they can develop undesirable behaviors - like the feather-plucking Rainbow  performed on himself, and excessive screaming. 

Rainbow is now in a foster home and has shown no signs of further feather-picking.  We hope, with time and love, that Rainbow will flourish and regain his feathered glory, while we work on socializing him.

If you are unable to come to our Spring Fling, please consider donating instead.  And if you become a GlobalGiving  monthly donor between now and May 13, GlobalGiving will match 100% of your initial donation, up to $200, after your fourth installment.

Rainbow, his 600+  friends in our flock of rescued birds, and our volunteers, all appreciate everything you do to help.
