A Mutts strip from December 12, 2012 (yes, 12-12-12) dedicated to those birds which do not, for whatever reason, migrate.
We raised 88% of the $9,000 goal we were striving for. THANKS for the generosity from both the people who attended the Holiday Party and the many of you who could not attend! This financial backing will help us pay about a week's worth of veterinary bills, helping our birds recover their physical health on their way toward becoming adoptable.
Have a great holiday season!

The Challenge Grant we told you about earlier this week has begun!
Members of Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue's Board of Directors are sponsoring this Challenge Grant. For every $3 donated now online or in person until 9 pm Pacific Time today, $1 will be given to Mickaboo by the donors, until we have raised $9,000 (when matching funds run out). With this financial help, we will be able to address the medical needs of our rescued birds for about 10 days - a wonderful gift.
If you're at or coming to the party - consider donating there. Watch our thermometer chart!
If you can't come and want to participate - donate online at www.mickaboo.org ("donate" buttons at the left margin) during the same timeframe, now until 9 pm today. We will update our Facebook page throughout the party. Stay tuned!
A welcome sentiment for those who have a distaste for hunting ... Non Sequitur from December 6, 2012.
Remembering the "fatty french fries" scandal at McDonalds from a half-decade ago, here's Bizarro from August 10, 2010:
A rather amusing comment on syntax is included in this Strange Brew take on the old clichéd saying, from January 3, 2014:
Some members of the Board of Directors have put up matching funds to be used in a Challenge Grant, a la public television’s challenge grants. On December 5, 9 am - 9 pm Pacific Time, for every $3 donated online or in person, an additional $1 will be given to Mickaboo. Party-goers can watch the money grow via a thermometer chart! We will also post periodically to our FaceBook page.
If you're coming to the party - consider donating there. If you can't come and want to help, donate online at www.mickaboo.org (9 am - 9 pm PT on Saturday, Dec 5). (The donation buttons are at the upper left of www.mickaboo.org.)
We are gratefull for the many in-kind donors to our Holiday Party silent auction and raffle - see who they are here.
Another Jason Love "Snapshot" starts off the last month of the year.
Looking for something to get us back into mainstream toons after our Thanksgiving marathon, I found this recaptioned photo from Cheezburger of November 14, 2014. It got me wondering about whether there really are vanilla-flavored Peeps so I Googled and discovered that there are ... but they are made for Independence Day, not Christmas! (No charge for additional trivia.)
