Facts about Penny w/Angel (Special Needs)

  • Breed: Pigeon
  • Color: White
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 7705678-A2011151
UPDATE 2/12: Penny became egg bound and required surgery to save her. She needs to live in a Lady Pigeons Only environment so as not to reproductively stimulated. Penny is a sweet, gentle bird that deserves the dignity and respect of a forever home.

Penny is one of ten homing pigeons that were originally owned by a wedding release business before being sold to Cal State Hayward for use in their Psych Dept's Animal Behavior Lab where they proved they had the ability to count! Despite their proven intelligence, they were kept in very small cages for over five years until the lab closed down and they were surrendered to MickaCoo. Now these two little cuties are living together as a mated couple in a big, beautiful foster aviary. They are very happy and want to find a really wonderful forever home.

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! www.PigeonRescue.org

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 www.PigeonRescue.org and visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/PigeonDiplomacy/ 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!)
