Facts about Dooby w/Newark

  • Breed: Pigeon
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 9237077-A2015070
UPDATE Jan 2016: Dooby has grown up to be a strapping young man pigeon and he has married Newark, another beautiful King Pigeon. Dooby loves to show off for her and they are a very romantic couple

Dooby (the dyed green one on the right) was found on 9/21 as a skinny, hungry, helpless baby left outside a mausoleum in San Leandro. Bred to meat (squab), he is a King Pigeon who was bought from a live poultry market and most likely 'released' at the mausoleum in order to honor someone who died. But releasing a helpless domestic pigeon like a baby King Pigeon is terribly cruel. They have no ability to survive in the wild. Who knows- Dooby may have been one of many that were released. He's the only that was rescued, though. He was too young to self-feed and was a skinny, sad baby until we paired him with Whimsy who he loves! She was also rescued (one of two found in a park in Oakland but the other died overnight) and needed a friend. Now they ae inseperable. We call them childhood sweethearts. They are doing great, healing and growing and recovering from the trauma. (Dooby has nearly double his weight in just 2 weeks!) Please- spread the word- don't release domestic birds! It's never a good idea. (You can read more here- 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!)
