Facts about Max w/ Batman

  • Breed: Pigeon
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 9614362-A2014030
UPDATE 12/27/15: Though adopted in the spring of 2014, Max is back with us (along with 5 of her friends including her mate Batman) and available for adoption, through no fault of her own. Max is a big, beautiful King Pigeon mated to a giant racing pigeon named Batman. They are available as a pair.

Max (shown here with his BFF Sparrow) arrived as the biggest and strongest of three very weak, sick baby pigeons ('squeakers', barely 4 weeks old) packed into two boxes with 9 other pigeons, one of 13 ultimately rescued from being butchered as poultry and surrendered to MickaCoo to find a safe home and live a good life. Max had 2 other young pigeon friends- Sparrow & Daisy, and together they made great progress and got healthier and stronger until Daisy took a turn for the worse. Tragically, she died. Ultimately, Sparrow & Max were adopted into a great aviary home together. You can see their rescue story and baby pictures 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!)
