On August 29th, Palomacy volunteer Ellie transported Novie & Limabean from their foster aviary at Andy’s Pet Shop in San Jose to Emily’s Monterey home so she could foster and potentially adopt them. Happy news! It’s official- they are home! We love getting updates about our birds and we especially love this wonderful video created by Emily in honor of Novie & Limabean! They are so in love! And so lucky! And so are you because we have lots of adorable, adoptable, easy to care for doves who can bring the same joy to your home! (Please see 53 Pet Doves Need Help! and learn more about fostering or adopting here.)
Emily’s mom Shannon sent this video disclaimer: “I promise Novie is not allowed to play with the blind cord nor is he allowed to gorge himself in the safflower bowl. Just showing off his adorable mischievous side!”
Ringneck dove Novie had been found injured and stray in Sacramento and was taken in to Wildlife Care Association where, rather than being turned away as a domestic as sometimes happens, they cared for him until Palomacy could make room. Limabean was one of nine doves whose people could no longer keep them. Thanks to our partnership with Andy’s (Rescue) Pet Shop and with lots of help from Palomacy volunteers Jill and Leda, we were able to rescue and care for Limabean and her flock. When Novie joined them, he won Limabean’s heart and so, when Emily applied to adopt him, the devoted couple were a package deal. Congratulations to Novie & Limabean and their adopter Emily and thank you to all the kind, compassionate people along the way who helped these little birds. It makes a difference.
