Oregon Rescue Fundraiser - Now through Monday, June 12, 2017

Final update:

With MANY thanks to our numerous and generous supporters, we collectively gathered $4,773 toward the medical expenses of the birds involved in the Oregon Rescue and their many feathered colleagues in our rescue flock. Our flock's vet bills this month are expected to top $40,000, so these funds will be put to use quickly.

The Oregon Rescue birds made their 10-hour journey to California yesterday.  Both birds were great travel companions; the African Grey whistled (in tune!) with the human driver in a cross-species duet for much of the time.

Our collective efforts resulted in $4,298 raised. THANK YOU!  That's about 3 days' worth of our veterinary expenses.  Many many thanks from Yolo Grey (pictured here), the rest of our 500+ rescued birds in our foster flock, and our many dedicated volunteers.  Your help makes all the difference to their lives.

Final update:

QuitaThe final results are in!  Together we raised almost $38,000, blowing past our $30,000 fundraising goal! I am humbled by and grateful for the outpouring of generosity this represents - enough to almost pay for a month's average veterinary costs incurred by our rescue flock of over 500 birds.

Matching funds have run out!  THANKS to YOUR incredible generosity, and the matching funds, we have raised a total of $17K. That's about half of an average month's vet bills - woohoo!  

Our volunteers and birds are incredibly thankful to you.   We hope to see many of you at our upcoming Holiday Party in Alameda on December 3!
