Adopted & Fostered Pigeons in JillVille (JillCam!)
Special Needs Pigeons fostered by Elizabeth
Palomacy rescues lots of special needs pigeons who would otherwise be euthanized. While this flock changes as the needs of the birds do, our Specials’ aviary as of 7/2/17 houses Jacob (25 year old brown & white male Capuchin), his mate Pesto (one-legged gray check survivor of pigeon racing), Violet (black & iridescent Roller pigeon unable to use her legs properly due most likely to spinal trauma- a common fate for Roller pigeons), Penny (female white Homer, survivor of the “dove release” business & an oviductectomy), her mate Rock pigeon Freddie (female, black rescued one-eyed feral survivor of string foot entanglement), Beatrice (gray check pigeon racing survivor just regaining the use of her legs after weeks of languishing unclaimed by her owner and untreated in the shelter) and baby Gracie Cricket (3.5 week old Homer pigeon discarded by her “dove release” breeder because she is black and white rather than pure white) housed here until she’s mature and strong enough to join the general population. If you can, please make a tax-deductible donation to Palomacy so that we can continue this life-saving, culture-changing work.
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 Prince & Snowdrop & Barnaby & Rusty
Prince (male, unreleasable feral Rock pigeon rescued as a baby with a broken beak) and his mate Snowdrop (female, all white Homer pigeon and “dove release” survivor) and Barnaby (male, speckled almond Persian High Flyer with a crest) and his mate Rusty (female, brown & white rescued King pigeon) are fostered and likely to be adopted by a wonderful family in SF, CA. (You too can foster and adopt- please apply here.)
