My story

Update 11/21/20: Gentle widow Augustus has a big King pigeon with lots of personality named Clever. They are available for adoption together.

Augustus (on the right, shown with her mate Shmuel), is a beautiful, sweet & very lucky survivor of pigeon racing & a hawk strike. She was rescued in December & lovingly cared for by the Good Samaritan who found her bleeding from both eyes & a wound on her neck. She made a great recovery & is a very sweet, gentle bird. She & Shmuel will be wonderful pets for their lucky adopters.Please apply to adopt http://www.pigeonrescue.org/birds/apply-to-foster-or-adopt/July 31, 2022, 7:36 am
