Buho, our long-time resident Western Screech Owl!
Recently, a mass was discovered in Buho’s abdomen during his annual wellness exam. Buho was examined, received x-rays, and surgery was recommended. In surgery, the veterinarian team discovered that Buho had a severely impacted gizzard (a muscular, thick-walled part of a bird’s stomach for grinding food, typically with grit). The area was cleaned out and the surgery was a success!
Buho is nearly ready to return home to his aviary at All About Owls, but his medical bills for such specialty care are steep, reaching nearly $4,000. Would you consider donating to our small non-profit organization to help support Buho? Donations can be made on Facebook, by check, or on our website at https://allaboutowls.org/donate-to-all-about-owls/
Checks can be mailed to our office at:

Thank you for your support! We are so happy that Buho is on the mend and will hopefully be back to educational programs in the near future!
