My story

NOVEMBER 2021 UPDATE: Regalia is all grown up & a very intense manbird. He was married to a small, timid pigeon for a time but was too domineering with her & is now single. Will be interesting to see who he is when he marries again. He may be the same or quite different. Time will tell.

Regalia is all white with a little (at the moment) pink bottom, named Regalia because of her marina rescue, she is constantly trying to figure these humans out. She is sweet with a stop it-some more attitude. She is a favorite of her foster mom. She had a small preening injury from a flock mate and is working through it like a champ with no foreseeable complications. Regalia & friends' rescue is a cautionary tale of an inhumane release done by a well meaning person. They were raised for squab, bought from a butcher and released, they were unable to feed themselves, drink or know that they could fly. At least 5 were released, one was killed by a predator & we rescued the surviving 4 10/7/19.Please apply to adopt http://www.pigeonrescue.org/birds/apply-to-foster-or-adopt/December 8, 2022, 5:50 am

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

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!)

Go meet their 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.
