My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Swan is a pretty little girl pigeon that is half Homer and half German Owl and predominantly snow white in color. She is very petite and has cute little ruffled feathers down her neck (from her German Owl side). She is still young, (both May of 2019) and recently matured enough to want to find a husbird to snuggle and a nest to call home! She is not hand tame, but is young and confident and would do well in an aviary setting or in a home with someone willing to give her time and attention to get her that way.Please apply to adopt http://www.pigeonrescue.org/birds/apply-to-foster-or-adopt/April 12, 2024, 6:46 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.
