    UPC's Conscious Eating Conference 2015

    9AM - 5PM

    David Brower Center 
    2150 Allston Way 
    Berkeley, CA 94704 
    Near the UC Berkeley Campus

    unnamed-1Palomacy will be tabling on behalf of squab and in support of all. United Poultry Concerns’ Conscious Eating Conference brings expert speakers to Berkeley, California Saturday April 4 to explore the ethics of eating and the effect that each food choice has, and why it matters. Our conference features a courageous investigator who goes undercover to document the inside story of animal farming. We will reveal little known facts about the fishing industry, including factory-farm fishing and how the oceans are being affected, and we will hear startling new information about the consciousness and emotional lives of fish. We will examine controversial strategies for farmed animal advocacy – especially the arguments raging over “single-issue” campaigns and confrontational activism in restaurants and supermarkets. Along with our speakers, this year’s conference features an interactive discussion with the audience on how to heighten our message with the most effective voices and actions.

    Don’t miss this exciting day of information exchange and advocacy support!

Palomacy, formerly called MickaCoo Pigeon & Dove Rescue, provides avian vet treatment, foster care and adoption services. Started in 2007 by Elizabeth Young, Palomacy volunteers have saved the lives of more than 600 birds that otherwise would have been killed in shelters.

    Just One Day

    9AM - 5PM

    Your Local Shelter Everywhere, USA

    Please- reach out to YOUR local animal shelter and talk with them about what happens to the domestic pigeons and doves in their area.

    unnamed-4

    We're trying to save 13,000 lives in Just One Day. Every year on June 11, the No Kill Advocacy Center leads a movement asking shelters across the country to put down their needles and become No Kill for Just One Day. Roughly 13,000 animals are adopted, over 1,000 shelters and rescue groups come together, adopters welcome a new family member, the incinerators remain shuttered and the morgues stay empty.  June 11 just may be the safest day for companion animals in shelters. (Read more.)

    Just like cats and dogs, domestic (tame and unreleasable) pigeons and doves wind up in animal shelters needing homes. Unlike with cats and dogs, few people know that they even exist let alone adopt them and, while all the other animals had rescues to help them, no one was saving these smart, gentle birds when they “timed out” until we started helping close this deadly gap in the Bay Area animal welfare community. (Read more.)

    Please- reach out to YOUR local animal shelter and talk with them about what happens to the domestic pigeons and doves in their area. Do they accept them or turn them away? What happens to them? Are they helped and placed like the other animals or are they routinely killed as if that was the only option? Please let us know what you find out. The pigeons and doves can't speak up but we can!
