Domestic Pigeons Can't Be Released

Domestic Pigeons Can't Be Released
These 4-week old king pigeons (squab) were bought at a live poultry market and "released" at a funeral. They had no place to go and no survival skills. They were lucky to end up in the animal shelter. (view small | med | large | orig)

Foster Volunteer Jill with Tink
Tink suffers from serious neurological impairment but, until meeting Jill, was aloof and standoffish. Jill and Tink fell in love immediately and their mutual devotion is beautiful to see. (view small | med | large | orig)

Chanel

Chanel
Chanel is a beautiful, sweet Trumpeter pigeon and a victim of selective breeding. His extravagant feathers impede his movements and make him vulnerable to growths and broken blood feathers. (view small | med | large | orig)

Doves Pierre & Piper

Doves Pierre & Piper
Pierre was surrendered to MickaCoo at the age of 12 months with an untreated splayed leg that made him unable to stand or walk. Piper was found as a stray in San Jose and rescued from shelter euthanasia by MickaCoo. They fell in love and Piper was an incredibly gentle, loving and supportive mate to Pierre throughout his surgeries and recovery. Pierre can now stand, walk, strut and fly and is very happy to have the use of his legs. (view small | med | large | orig)
