Dear Partners, Friends and Supporters,
I am pleased to announce the newest chapter in MickaCoo’s continuing development. As many of you know, our little rescue organization began under the wing of Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue, who generously shared their wealth of experience with us, providing database services, allowing us to operate under their nonprofit designation, and much more. We will be forever grateful for this support and will always think of Mickaboo as our big sister parrot rescue.
When we “fledged” and joined up with Community Initiatives as our fiscal sponsor, we maintained the MickaCoo name in recognition of the fact that we had begun to establish a strong identity in the communities we serve. We have operated as MickaCoo Pigeon and Dove Rescue for seven years now, and feel we are ready to choose a name that defines our focus and describes the work that we do.
Effective January 1st, 2015, MickaCoo Pigeon and Dove Rescue will become Palomacy Pigeon and Dove Adoptions. We are beginning our transition immediately and expect that it will take a couple of months before we can fully retire the MickaCoo name. Our mission remains the same-
We save homeless domestic pigeons and doves in the San Francisco Bay Area from being killed. We provide guidance, referrals, education, foster care, avian vet treatment and adoption services. Thanks to the support of our many volunteers, donors and partners, we have saved the lives of more than 600 birds since we began in 2007 and helped countless others.
We will be rebranding our outreach materials and renaming our social media sites (details to follow). Our website address remains www.PigeonRescue.org
Thank you in advance for your support as we complete this transition and continue to grow.
Clare Malone Prichard, Advisory Committee Chair
