Because of you who have voted for Mickaboo's GlobalGiving Photo Contest entry so far, we're in second place!   That said, we need to be in FIRST place (to win $1000), and that's where YOU can help.

If you have NOT voted yet - please vote at this page.

If you HAVE voted - please ask a fellow bird-lover to vote with us!

If we all work together, Mickaboo's birds WILL win this contest!

The contest prize will help birds like Tad (pictured), a blue fronted Amazon with papilloma, a contagious disease that is hard (and expensive) to treat.  He came to us after flying into a backyard; the property owners gave Tad to their local shelter when they realized Tad had a health problem. The shelter then called Mickaboo (not atypical, as shelters are generally unequipped to cope with sick parrots).

Please take advantage of this opportunity to help pay the vet bills for Tad and many other birds like him and vote for us!

Mickaboo's birds and volunteers will appreciate your help.
