Featured Volunteer: Linda Terra

By Shauna Hill

This is the first of a series of interviews of Mickaboo’s new home visit team. The home visit is an important step in our adoption/fostering process. It gives the potential adopter or fosterer a chance to have a 1-1 meeting with a volunteer to ask questions and get feedback. It also allows any potential dangers in the home environment to be identified and discussed. I always tell folks we leave our white gloves at home LOL; we are only concerned about seeing if there are potential hazards or dangers for the bird(s) coming into the home. View PDF in a new window

At the time, I thought the whole concept of rescuing pigeons was a bit weird, but I didn’t know how much it would end up shaping my future. View PDF in a new window
