Facts about Hootie w/Fleetwood

  • Breed: Pigeon
  • Color: White
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 9607695-A2015113
Hootie is a shy little Homing pigeon (the kind bred, used & lost in 'dove releases') who was lucky enough to get taken to a shelter when she got lost and needed help. The shelter doesn't place birds so she was put on our waiting list and after a month, we were able to fit her in. I'm so glad that we were able to help her not only for Hootie but also for her very happy new husband Fleetwood! He is a special needs pigeon who has been wanting a mate for months and now he is so proud to be married to beautiful little Hootie. They are available for adoption together and will do best in a small, easy going flock. Currently Fleetwood still requires daily handfeeding (his upper beak was torn off in a predator attack) but we are still hopeful that someday and in the right setting, he'll be able to self-feed.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!)
