Our Fall edition of Mickaboo's newsletter features useful information and news about the birds and events you help support. Read stories about our rescue activities and MORE!

And, we have a matching gift opportunity in the near future! From Oct 23, 6 am PT to 9 pm PT, GlobalGiving will match your online donations at 30%, up to $1,000 per donor per project, until GlobalGiving has given away $20,000 of matching funds for all of its participating projects. Go to Mickaboo's GlobalGiving page early in the day to take advantage of this opportunity - matching funds for some earlier bonus days have run out in the first HOUR!

Your donations help birds in our care like Octavius the Maximilian Pionus (pictured). He has a fungal granuloma in his respiratory system that has now invaded his spine. This bird is still fighting for his life, so we are helping him; his prognosis is still unclear but improving. A week ago, he had regained the use of one of his legs. Last Friday, the veterinarian was trying to wean him off of oxygen.

Earlier treatment may have prevented the progression of the disease Octavius is now fighting. To his credit, his former owner took Octavius to a vet, but (sadly) refused to authorize the tests needed to diagnose his condition accurately. 

Would you consider taking advantage of this matching gift opportunity on October 23 and help pay the vet bills for Octavius and our many other foster birds?

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