MEET VELMA!

Ginkies! This sweet 3-year old ring-necked dove is looking for a forever home where she can solve supernatural crimes or just hang with the gang of other ring-necked kids. Velma and the rest of the Scooby Doo crew are very social and would prefer to be adopted out with one of their buddies, or go live in a home with another dove companion. Any introductions to existing doves in your household would have to be done slowly and be well supervised. In order to adopt VELMA we will need to see a photo of the cage/enclosure she is going to be living in, prior to taking her home. Stop by our Boston Adoption Center to visit the gang and see if these meddling kids are the doves you''ve been waiting for!
