Facts about Charlie w/Boomer

  • Breed: Pigeon
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 11025739-A2016070
Charlie is a very special pigeon. She was found stray as a youngster and taken to the Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley where, a couple of days later when they added another rescued pigeon fledgling to her cage (one-eyed Pirate), they realized she was blind. Since they were both determined to be unrelesable (Pirate was too tame), WCSV reached out to Palomacy for help. We picked them up on 7/28/16 and though the fledglings had been fine together initially, Pirate had become too aggressive and so they were separated. Blind pigeons have a difficult time socializing with other pigeons because so much of their behavior is shaped by visual cues. Unable to see, Charlie is socially awkward and so vulnerable to being bullied. She was single and got most of her interactions from people until we paired her with gentle bachelor Boomer (a pigeon racing survivor). They are in love and working through the challenges of newlywed life. Charlie is a very sublime, lovable pigeon. She & Boomer would do best in a quiet home as indoor pets or in an outside aviary gentle a couple of gentle flock mates.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!)
