What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

My wife and I currently share our household with 5 rescued pigeons and we want to dedicate ourselves to providing a larger area for more pigeons, doves and feral or wild poultry to go to when they need care and rehabilitation. We want to establish a charity and to lease a small plot of land on which we can erect aviaries. We want to home birdies that are disabled and rehabilitate those that just need some help and a safe place to spend the night. We want to be somewhere that people can take injured birds to, or call when they see a feathered friend in need of hand, where they can rest assured they won't simply be put down.

Please help us make this dream a reality. We're willing to work for years if need be to make this happen.

    Here's our 6th rescue, Ail! Ail came to us as a fledgling found hunched in an alley near Fleshmarket in October 2017. Ail was too young to survive by himself but we think he got separated from her parents during the previous night's gale. After many sleepless nights of baby Ail demanding food and cuddles and lots of hand-feeding, Ail has grown up to be a beautiful girl who's only just loosing her squeaky voice. While Ail is not disabled like our other rescues, Ail has bonded with Amy and I and so is unreasonable. We're so glad we spotted her

    Here's our 2nd ever rescue, JonJon! JonJon was found outside a cafe in November 2016 where he was incredibly bloated and limped terribly. Now a year later, JonJon is so much better and a member of our family. JonJon is missing 2 toes on his right foot and his left is mangled. His depressed skull means he suffered a head injury at some point so his needs are complex. He rarely flies, gets confused and sometimes needs help eating and drinking. Nonetheless, he's an incredibly cuddly and sweet little guy and he's lucky to be here :).

    Fantastic idea. I'd love this to become a reality. I sometimes find pigeons that are in trouble so it would be great to have somewhere nearby that I can trust to help. Best of luck to you.

    Great thing you're doing. Many chickens and turkeys need a safe place to recover and live a safe and happy life as well as our pidgies. Can't wait to see the before during & finished pics x
