The work of animal rescuers (and the humans who love them) can be very un-glamorous. Totally worth the effort, but very humble and messy. Palomacy’s volunteers shine brightly through it all, though, their generosity and compassion radiant through the endless pij pants changes, cleaning of aviaries, hours in cars crowded with cages, and fatigue at the end of long advocacy events.

Volunteer Christiana Reed wanted to find a way to show the world how beautiful the spirit of Palomacy is, and got inspired to learn the art of tutu making to this end, with all sales benefitting the cause of the pigeons. This endeavor took on a life of its own, and Christiana’s coo-ture is now showcased in all manner of settings, from tea parties to Burning Man.

To help with the cost of some Palomacy’s recent large vet bills, Christiana is now offering her entire inventory of tutus and matching corsets at tutu-good-to-be-true prices! 100% of proceeds are donated directly to Palomacy, and you have the opportunity to score one-of-a-kind creations just in time for Hallowe’en.

Photos and information on the items for sale are below. Please contact Christiana at christianadove13@yahoo.com to place an order or ask any questions.

Christiana also gladly takes custom orders all year round, for people and pets (including pigeons), and as always, 100% of proceeds are donated to Palomacy.
