What if you could help beautiful, intelligent (and numerous! over 600!) rescued birds simply by going online earlier than usual? GlobalGiving's most generous Bonus Day of the year is Wednesday, July 18, starting at 6 am PT. This Bonus Day will match your gifts at 50%, boosting your donation's effectiveness while the $120K in matching funds last (and usually the funds go VERY fast - sometimes vanishing in less than 30 minutes!).
Your financial support will allow us to help birds like Curtis, a cute canary. Curtis had escaped to the great outdoors and was captured by a good samaritan. He was given to a local animal shelter. The shelter in turn surrendered him to Mickaboo, thinking he had been injured. (Most animal shelters and SPCAs are well-equipped to handle dog and cat medical issues, but not those of birds.)
Curtis has been seen by a vet and given the all-clear. His foster parents report he has a voracious appetite for greens - the broccoli crown on which he is standing in the photo was eaten in a day!
