In shelter Bird

Chicago, IL, 60611
Pet name:
Affectionately and warmly named Lovey, this marshmallow white pigeon adores nothing more than a fluffy pillow and a handful of peanuts to brighten his day. White pigeons are a symbol of peace harmony and tranquility, and Lovey is the perfect ambassador for this metaphor. Small notes of admiration can be heard from Lovey as he "coos" delightfully at his reflection in the mirror. Call this fellow vain, but he is quite striking! ;-) Although steeped in ancient tradition, wedding and funeral pigeon releases are a cruel and unnecessary practice by todays standards.  Bearing in mind these pigeons are not trained or capable of foraging on their own, people still persist in these releases. Lovey was rescued following such an event, by a kind hearted family. He was in emaciated physical condition, and we can only imagine his gratitude to finally be offered food  water and safe shelter. Fully recovered, Lovey now awaits the next step of his journey, Possibly this might include a lovely ladybird looking for some coos and pecks on the cheek! A bit of time and patience with Lovey will go a long way as he builds up his trust and feels comfortable being handled. A happily ever after ending is what we want to write for Lovey!
