Facts about Whimsy w/Tux

  • Breed: Pigeon
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 9237079-A2015068
UPDATE Jan 2016: Whimsy has grown up to be a lovely young lady pigeon and is now married to the big, handsome black & white pigeon named Tux. They are available for adoption together.

Whimsy, on the left, was found 'released' (abandoned) in an Oakland Park with another King Pigeon youngster who died that night. They were extremely lucky to be rescued by a kind person rather then killed and eaten by hungry predators. Little Whimsy was sick with a respiratory infection and very depressed at the loss of her friend. Only a day later, we took in Dooby (on the right). Dooby was dyed green by the poultry seller and purchased for 'release' at a mausoleum in San Leandro. When found, he was starving and in terrible danger. Now both are safe and inseperable. They are besties! (We think Whimsy is female and Dooby male but they are too young to know for sure.)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!)
