On May 19, 2015, Palomacy founder Elizabeth & rescued King pigeon Dylan (bred to be butchered as squab) visited Animal Place Farm Sanctuary’s Rescue Ranch in Vacaville to firm up plans for a long-sought collaboration that will help save the lives of King Pigeons who have evaded the butcher and survived “release” to the streets but face death in Bay Area animal shelters for want of adopters.

The chickens and pigeons will be neighbors
Elizabeth is an Animal Place intern. It was her rescuing of a pigeon (which interrupted a chicken dinner) that inspired her to become vegan.
The pigeon aviary will be in the clearing behind where Jan & Elizabeth are silhouetted
Their covered porch has a very aviary-friendly design!
Jan & Elizabeth- ready to help pigeons!
