Donate Now - Lift the Mickaboo Moratorium!

Mickaboo has imposed a temporary moratorium on incoming birds due to an unexpected and significant increase in our veterinary expenses.  YOUR action now can help us lift the moratorium so we can help other birds needing our assistance.

Mickaboo promises to provide a safe home and adequate veterinary medical care to all the birds for whom we are responsible. These birds include recent refugees like Bancroft (pictured resting in an incubator after we took him in), rescued from under a car in San Francisco where he was being attacked by other birds.  His medical care, and that for four other members of the Wild Flock of Telegraph Hill, totalled almost $10,000 in May!  To continue meeting our commitment to our current foster flock, we suspended acceptance of new birds as of midnight on May 25.

Help us lift the moratorium!  We have a rare matching gift opportunity to help you do just that. On June 12, from 6 am - 9 pm Pacific Time, GlobalGiving will match your online donations at 50%, up to $1,000 per donor per project, until GlobalGiving has given away $90,000 of matching funds for all of its projects. Go to Mickaboo's GlobalGiving page to take advantage of this opportunity.

P.S. Your gift may *also* be eligible for matching by your employer! Send any matching gift forms to GlobalGiving for processing.
