My story

UPDATE 3/3/22: After four very happy years as pet house pigeons, beautiful, friendly Star & her mate Skye (formerly named Guiseppe & Hercules) were returned to Palomacy due to their adopter's health. They have cheerfully adapted to the change (as pigeons do), are available for adoption & are fostered in the Palomacy aviary in Kibbles n' Gifts pet supply store in Half Moon Bay. You can visit them there!

UPDATE 3/14/2018 Today Hercules married sweet Guiseppe!! They are happily honeymooning. Anyone would be lucky to adopt this pair. Hercules is shy, but very sweet, and Guiseppe loves people and enjoys spending time being in your hand, on your shoulder, and sometimes on your head! This pair would do well as house pets with a lot of out of cage time, or in an aviary outside with lots of human contact.

Hi! My name is Guiseppe and I am a social pigeon girl who likes people and would do well as an indoor bird, or as an outdoor bird in an aviary with some bird friends and lots of human interaction! I enjoy baths and am an all around likeable little bird. I was found abandoned, and some nice people took me in, made sure I was safe for a while, and got me to Palomacy so that I could find my perfect forever home. Please consider adding me to your family. I would love to share the years making wonderful memories with you!Please apply to adopt 2, 2023, 6:43 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 and visit our Facebook page at for details.
