We are a small bird rescue organization located in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are dedicated to rescuing parrot-type birds that have been either neglected, abused, sick, or injured. We rehabilitate them when necessary, and place them in safe, caring foster homes until a permanent home can be found. Our goals are:
• To ensure that birds in our care will have a safe, loving environment for life.
• To educate bird owners on the most current care information, so that their birds’ medical, emotional, and dietary needs will be met.
Adopting a Companion
We regret to inform you but we cannot offer fostering services if you live outside the San Francisco Bay Area. And we can only adopt birds out to California residents. If you do not live in California, but are interested in adopting a bird, please visit our "related links" page at www.mickaboo.org" for a list of other bird rescue organizations around the USA and the world.
Our primary concern is the well being of these birds. The majority of them have at some time, either been abused, neglected, sick or injured. For these reasons everyone interested in fostering or adopting a bird from us, must fill out an application (which can be downloaded from our website at: www.mickaboo.org) as well as attend one of our regularly scheduled Bird Education Classes. We also will not ship birds for the safety and health of these beloved animals.
We charge an adoption fee for all birds adopted from us. The amount of the fee varies depending on the species of the bird adopted. Due to our commitment to place these birds in the best possible environment, we resrve the right to refuse adoption/fostering of any bird, to anyone, for any reason.
For more information on adopting or fostering a bird from us, please visit our website at: www.mickaboo.org
Bird Education Classes
Every month, Mickaboo holds at least one or two free bird-care class for the public and potential foster/adoptive parents (although donations are gladly accepted). We talk about Proper avian care, Proper avian diet, Symptoms of illness & First Aid, General husbandry, Taming and training and much, much more...

Come Visit Us!
Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue (MCBR) consists of many dedicated, loving foster homes located in the San. Francisco Bay Area, so we don't have a shelter that you can come visit all of our birds at. Our foster parents are caring, conscientious volunteers who care for displaced rescue birds until a permanent home can be found. These individuals are trained through MCBR in bird care, and they supply food, treats, necessary transportation and of course, lots of love. We find that birds (as well as most animals) do much better in a home environment vs. a shelter environment. Some of our birds have been abused, neglected, ill or injured and these birds are able to recover from their ordeals much easier when in a loving, caring foster home. If you would like to become a foster or adoptive parent, please visit our website for more information! www.mickaboo.org
