Facts about Oakley w/Hannah

  • Breed: Pigeon
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 8407865-A2015021
UPDATE: Oakley (shown here wearing pants and snuggling in a volunteer's arms with his mate Hannah sitting nearby) is now married to sweet King pigeon Hannah and both are tame, happy to socialize with people and expert at wearing pigoen pants (all thanks to the time, love and care of our foster volunteers at Humane Society of Silicon Valley).

Oakley, a wild Rock Pigeon, was badly injured, possibly by a through and through gun shot. She (?) was struggling to survive with her terrible wounds, worsening infection and unable to fly nor walk. She was very lucky to be found by nice people before a hungry predator finished her off. Her injuries have cost her half a wing but she's getting great care and her infection is clearing and her broken leg is healing. She'll never be able to go free but she'll have a happy life in an aviary. She's very sweet and has endured all her procedures and treatments with amazing grace.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!)
