I am happy to announce today that I am supporting Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue Organization I want my company to have socks that give back to the community.
So in honor of my decision I have dedicated a complete Product Page on Socks by My Foot Fetish as Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue Socks Here you will find socks with Parrots on them as well as other birds. Some are real birds and some are for play but all when purchased a small portion will go to Mickaboo. As my online store grows I hope to increase my donations accordingly.
In my article written and posted here: Birds of Paradise, Sock Art was the first time I had learned about Mickaboo and what they do with birds and for birds.
I learned about the Parrots of Telegraph Hill in San Francisco from a friend of mine who took the photos and then sent them to me along with the U-tube video. Here is his link: http://www.fototaker.net I am a research nerd and delved more deeply into the Parrots of Telegraph Hill. That is when I stumbled upon the U-tube video of the Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue Organization and found that they helped the Parrots of Telegraph Hill. Some of the dangers are:
- They have an unknown neurological disease that makes them too dizzy to perch or fly. They get ill, are unable to keep up with the flock or to eat, and they fall to the ground.
- They suffer injuries from predators or in other ways.
- Fledglings crash and break a wing, a leg or their spine.
and once these occur they cannot stay in the wild any longer. The Mickaboo volunteers pick up the parrots and try to nurse them back to health and then since they cannot be released back into the wild population find someone to adopt them.
This is the Raison d’être for Mickaboo. Along with these Parrots they have many more birds that they take in and care for and foster until someone adopts them. Check out the list of birds they help!

Notice: Mickaboo serves primarily the northern California area. Although we may deal with southern CA or out-of-state adopters in certain circumstances, our ability to do so is extremely limited due to volunteer availability. Mickaboo does not ship birds due to health, safety and well-being concerns. Please see this page for a list of rescues in your area:
I am extremely happy to help in a small way to provide for these birds. I hope with the reading of my articles you will learn and enjoy finding out about such great people and an organization exists to help adopt birds, they also help train people in the care of birds. I believe this is extremely helpful prior to even adopting a bird.
