The Need for Rescue Never Stops

Palomacy Help is Always Available

Even during the holiday season, the need for rescue never stops. Palomacy is as busy as ever- busier even- and we're always here to help the birds and people who need us. Our incredibly helpful Palomacy Help Group is always open, always on. I cannot overstate how much this group helps me and so many others each and every day. Palomacy’s volunteer team of help group moderators provides fast, trustworthy support, information and referrals to help birds 24/7/365 all around the world. They tend to more than 1,000 posts every month, heroically keeping up with every request for help in an active group of more than 6,400 members (and growing fast)! Our mods are busy people- juggling big workloads, pressing family responsibilities, constant local rescue demands and still they generously volunteer hours of their time, energy and patience to provide excellent, compassionate palomatic online customer service in support of thousands of needy birds and their humans.

Moderator Ashley Dietrich writes, “Rescue can be mentally and physically strenuous work, and we’re dealing daily with the aftermath of human disregard for animals. As a new rehabber, I struggled (mostly alone) to find resources and accurate information, so I know how vital the help group is. Modding has shown me that there are many caring people out there who want to help birds.  Whereas rescue work can be isolating, we foster a supportive community. It’s wonderful to be part of a team that empowers others to give a pigeon or dove that life-saving chance, allowing us to make an impact beyond our local areas.”

See what's happening with our amazing Palomacy Help Group and moderators here.

Homes for the Holidays

The most meaningful way Palomacy can help an unreleasable bird is to get them placed in a wonderful home, whether foster or forever, and placements continue year round, uninterrupted even by the holidays. Rescued pigeons and doves make wonderful pets indoors with the family or several can live in an outdoor aviary (no heating or cooling required in most locales). It needs to be predator-proof (sturdy and securely built), rodent-proof (use hardware mesh with openings no more than half an inch), and include a sheltered corner and back area that will provide enough deep shade for all in the hottest weather and protection from blowing rain and snow in the winter. They require about 20 minutes of daily care with a weekly aviary cleaning (figure an hour). They are quiet and peaceful and, with time and attention, most can be hand-tamed. Check out guest blog post How We Built Our Aviary for photos, instuctions, diagrams, materials required and a free downloadable PDF.

Time Flies!

Would you believe 2020 is just around the corner? Luckily we have our big, beautiful, full-color, bird-filled Palomacy wall calendars just about ready to send out. Our monthly donors and foster volunteers get one automatically as our thank you for helping birds every day! They're available to everybirdy though. Click here to see how you can get yours (and/or to order extras). And of course- they make awesome gifts for your whole flock!
