My story

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

Update: Casca is male & he’s now married to Jonesey who divorced her husbird to marry him!

This is Casca, a feisty survivor who nearly walked in through her rescuer's back door! This big, beautiful King pigeon was exhausted with hunger and thirst when a Palomacy volunteer arrived, but perked up fast once we provided food and water. Casca is not yet used to being handled or hand fed, but we think a patient caretaker could change that quickly. We think Casca is a hen because a male began his attempts to woo her as soon as she joined Palomacy's foster aviary at Ploughshares Nursery in Alameda. This sweet bird is so ready to be given the love and care she deserves!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.
