Jack & Jill
These two didn't come in together but showed a willingness to share a small shelter cage and so now are a couple. (Doubling the pigeons up saves cage space which reduces pressure to euthanize plus provides enrichment and companionship for the birds housed together.)
Jack was found on 1/11 wandering as a stray at the intersection of Stanyan and Waller (near Golden Gate Park) and lucky enough to be picked up and brought in to SF ACC by an Animal Control Officer.
Jill, dyed green for some idiotic reason, was found at the intersection of Mission & 23rd on 1/24 and was also lucky enough to be brought in. (Kings don't survive long out on their own.)
Responding to a cage space-crisis at SF ACC on 1/28, I was able to pull 12 birds out (4 kings & 4 hens went to Marin Humane Society courtesy of a Mickaboo volunteer chauffeur, 4 came home temporarily with me) and I was able to pair up 3 couples out of the 7 remaining king pigeons, including Jack & Jill. Then, on 1/30, I pulled SF ACC's 4 roosters and drove them down South where another Mickaboo volunteer met me and continued their transport to a rooster rescue (VERY difficult to find homes for roosters) for a total gain of 19 freed-up cages. I was pretty proud.
Jack & Jill's lucky run continued when, on 2/13, I was able to pull them from their small cage at SF ACC and place them as fosters in a not-so-small cage (vacated-only-seconds-prior by the adopted Alfredo & Amaretto) at Andy's Pet Shop in San Jose.
