People don't realize that animal shelters are routinely euthanizing adoptable domestic, unreleasable pigeons and doves for lack of homes. Potential adopters are completely unaware that these lovely birds are available and in need of homes while breeders are continuing to advertise and sell birds. Smart, gentle, innocent pigeons and doves, bred to be dependent on humans, need rescue, foster homes, vet care, adoption and humane advocacy.
Palomacy (formerly MickaCoo) saves homeless domestic pigeons & doves in the SF/Bay Area from euthanasia (more than 600 since 2007). Palomacy mobilizes hundreds of supporters and volunteers to help publicize these overlooked companion birds; fundraises to provide avian vet care and placement services when shelters cannot; educates at fairs and outreach events and carefully screens, approves and supports adopters to provide nonbreeding, responsible forever homes.
Already Palomacy has increased awareness and support for the plight of pigeons and doves. Shelters in the SF/Bay Area no longer euthanize these innocent birds but instead work with Palomacy to publicize and care for them until foster or forever homes are available. Prior to Palomacy, there was a fatal gap in our animal rescue community. We were failing to meet humane responsibilities. By generating compassion for humble pigeons & doves, we model that all can be adopted rather than euthanized.
