A Safe Place for a Special Bird

$565 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 6 people in 30 months
What does one do with a special needs, green winged macaw who WILL NOT play with toys but likes to chew the powder-coated paint off her cage?

For even the healthiest birds, chipped paint can become a medical emergency, but, for special birds like Bella, who have incurable illnesses that require hospice care, chewing paint can become a tragic loss.

And, it is completely preventable by replacing her powder coated cage with one made of stainless steel.

Bella is one of a flock of birds that have come to Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue with illness that require their living the remainder of their lives in a home dedicated exclusively to birds having the same or similar contagious diseases. 

These are the unwanted, the neglected and the abused birds that Mickaboo commits to finding homes, providing needed medical care, and, for the special birds, like Bella, ensuring the dignified and loving hospice care they deserve for whatever time they are with the Mickaboo volunteers who open their homes and hearts to them.

And, because cages, homes and toys used by Bella and her flockmates can never be shared with other birds, the resources are that much more limited.

A stainless steel cage will give Bella, and the future macaws and other large, long lived birds, that come to live with this special flock (and, they *will* come) a safe place to call their own.

Stainless steel cages large enough for Bella are expensive, but, with a little bit of help from everyone that wants to help us make life better for one that can't do it without us, we can make a huge difference for many more to come.
