Charlie & Boomer fostered by Ellie
Blind Rock pigeon Charlie & her mate, pigeon-racing survivor Boomer have a complicated relationship and, because of their different needs, have been challenging to place. We’re hopeful that Ellie’s lovely little two-bird aviary, located in her Berkeley garden, may prove ideal for them. Time will tell.
Palomacy Pigeons Sprocket & Virgil fostered at HSSV
Sprocket (female, black with white flight & tail feathers) & Virgil (male, all black) are rescued Roller pigeons, bred for and survivors of an unkind hobby that selectively inbreeds birds to have a seizure disorder which is expressed by somersaulting. You can learn more about Rollers (which make lovely, sweet pets) here. This adorable little couple is fostered for Palomacy in the lobby of the Humane Society of Silicon Valley in Milpitas. They have a devoted team of volunteers who provide them with daily out-of-cage time for exercise, socializing and fun as well as housekeeping. Sprocket & Virgil are a newly married pair available for adoption together. (Apply here.)
