Facts about Pat w/Guru

  • Breed: Pigeon
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 7705607-A2014091
UPDATE: Pat is all grown up and has a pigeon wife named Guru. Together they build some of the best nests we've ever seen! Pat has many talents. He's also a really wonderful pigeon ambassador who works at lots of events for us, showing off pigeon pants and what great pets pigeons are. He's got some special human friends that he loves and we know that he'd make a great pet. (His mate Guru prefers not to be handled.)
Pat is an all white King pigeon with just a touch of black on the ends of his tail feathers. He was found as at the age of 4 weeks wandering around helpless and endangered in Golden Gate Park on 4/7/14. He was lucky enough to get taken to the SF animal shelter where they kept him for 6 weeks... with no adopter in sight and timed out, MickaCoo squeezed him into our foster care. He's great in the aviary- getting along fine with everybody, and he's tolerant of being handled and shown off (in pigeon pants) at outreach & adoption events. Recently he has shown great pet potential in the loving hands of a volunteer- he is very relaxed and happy with her! Pat needs a home- either with birds or with people and ideally a mate to call his own. (He's still a bachelor.)Please apply to adopt

About Palomacy Pigeon & Dove Adoptions

About Our Rescue Group...

Palomacy Pigeon & Dove Adoption saves homeless domestic (unreleasable) pigeons and doves in the SF/Bay Area from euthanasia by providing veterinary care, foster and forever homes.

Palomacy fills a deadly gap in the animal welfare community by saving the lives of domestic/unreleasable doves and pigeons that would otherwise be killed. We're volunteer-powered, donation supported and culture changing! By providing avian vet care, foster and forever homes, we've saved more than 700 birds' lives since 2007. Join us!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are a volunteer-powered rescue and our birds are lovingly cared for in the private homes and backyard aviaries of our foster volunteers. Potential adopters can make appointments to meet our birds and we are at adoption & outreach events almost every weekend. See our Events page at and visit our Facebook page at for details.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an online adoption application, phone screen & home visit and offer lots of support and coaching all along the way. Our adoption fee is $10/bird and our expectations for adopters are:
-Appropriately sized, safe and uncrowded cage or aviary approved by Palomacy
-Supervised, safe out-of-cage time (if not living in an aviary) daily
-No free flight/uncaged outside time
-Protection from hazards including but not limited to escape, pets, predators, fumes and toxins
-Companionship- lots of your time or another bird's (not home alone)
-Avian vet care if sick or injured
-Compassionate, healthy care that provides for the bird's nutritional (including lighting), physical and emotional well-being
-No breeding, birth control if bird has a mate (real eggs replaced with fakes which we provide)
-A forever home (through sickness and health, for better or worse) with a pet-care plan in place should something happen to you
-No selling, sporting or business use of birds
-Return to Palomacy if unable to keep the bird (This is not desired- we expect that you are providing a forever home!)
