Facts about Leonor

  • Breed: Pigeon
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 9851681-A2016024
Leonor is a very sweet pigeon who was rescued as a baby by a kind person and kept as a pet rather than rehabbed and released to live free by an expert wildlife rescuer. She had a happy life as a pet for a year until her person's landlord found out and then she had to be rehomed. We are glad that we were able to squeeze her in. (She's too tame now and will never be releasable.) She thinks of herself more as a person than a bird and she is currently fostered with a loving family who is likely to adopt her. Pigeons are so smart and emotional- they make great pets and there are many domestic & unreleasable pigeons in need of homes! Please- always get a rescued wild pigeon to a pigeon-friendly wildlife expert.Please apply to adopt http://www.pigeonrescue.org/birds/apply-to-foster-or-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! www.PigeonRescue.org

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 www.PigeonRescue.org and visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/PigeonDiplomacy/ 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!)
