Facts about Harper (w/ Darius)

  • Breed: Pigeon
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 7705670-A2011148
UPDATE: Harper has had surgery to remove the ruptured feather cyst and she has made a full recovery. She is an active and lovely bird and was a little bored with her timid, mild special needs mate Felix. They've been split up and Harper is currently single (but not likely for long).

Hello! We are Felix and Harper, a little fantail male and a homer hen, and we need a nice, calm, safe life in the slow-lane. We were surrendered along with 10 other pigeons to the Marin Humane Society because our person could no longer provide us with a home. We arrived in pretty run-down condition. Harper had a big, painful ruptured feather cyst that she had been coping with for at least a year and I was weak and had feather loss from being picked on. (I'm a lover, not a fighter.) Now that we are in a less crowded and more mellow environment, we're doing much better. Harper has had her surgery and that awful feather cyst is gone and I'm feeling better and stronger too. We are sweet little birds and we need someone kind and patient to give us a forever home where we will be safe. Nobody should be bullied- not even a pigeon!

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!)
