People don't realize that animal shelters are routinely euthanizing adoptable domestic, unreleasable pigeons and doves for lack of homes. Potential adopters are completely unaware that these lovely birds are available and in need of homes while breeders are continuing to advertise and sell birds. Smart, gentle, innocent pigeons and doves, bred to be dependent on humans, need rescue, foster homes, vet care, adoption and humane advocacy.


Palomacy Pigeon & Dove Adoptions saves homeless domestic (unreleasable) pigeons and doves in seven counties of the San Francisco Bay Area from being killed in animal shelters by providing veterinary care, foster, forever homes as well as community outreach and humane education to address the hidden-in-plain-sight plight of these smart, loyal and under-served birds. Palomacy fills a deadly gap in the animal welfare community by saving the lives of doves and pigeons that would otherwise be killed for lack of adopters. We're volunteer-powered, donation supported and culture changing! We are increasing compassion and reducing cruelty. By providing avian vet care, foster and forever homes, we've saved more than 600 birds' lives since 2007. Join us!
Palomacy Pigeon & Dove Adoptions saves hundreds of domestic, unreleasable birds in the San Francisco Bay Area from death by providing veterinary care, foster and forever homes. Palomacy closes a gap in the animal rescue community. Smart, gentle, innocent domestic pigeons and doves, bred to be dependent by humans, can't live free and need help to be adopted. Animal shelters need help to meet this challenge. Euthanasia should not be used as an alternative to adoption.

Long-Term Impact

Already Palomacy has increased awareness and support for the plight of pigeons and doves. Shelters in the SF/Bay Area no longer euthanize these innocent birds but instead work with Palomacy to publicize and care for them until foster or forever homes are available. Prior to Palomacy, there was a fatal gap in our animal rescue community. We were failing to meet humane responsibilities. By generating compassion for humble pigeons & doves, we model that all can be adopted rather than euthanized.
