The secret is out - pigeons are the new up-and-coming companion bird!

Street pigeons may be dirty as any animal would be if left out in the street to fend for itself, but they clean up very nicely and develop beautiful feathering when they get proper nutrition and care.

Testimonials

7 months ago
I adopted my pigeon Cricket from here and he has quickly become my emotional support animal and feels like a piece of my soul. They took care of Cricket with such love when he was with their fosters, and has given me continuing advice throughout my journey with him. They are an extremely kind, hard-working, and intelligent group of people that tirelessly does incredible work rehabbing, adopting out, and spreading information about one of the most misunderstood species in the world. You won't regret adopting from them.

Pigeon & Dove Rescue & Adoption Service

What We Do:

  • Pigeon & Dove Rescue
  • Providing Foster Homes & Medical Treatment
  • Pigeon & Dove Adoption

Great Lakes Pigeon Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing a foster and adoption network for injured and otherwise unreleasable pigeons in the Great Lakes region. We rescue and rehabilitate abandoned and injured pigeons, and connect adoptive pigeon parents with fancy and hand-raised pigeons and doves whose owners can no longer care for them, as well as city-born pigeons who are found injured and cannot be released back into the wild.

Did You Know?

  • Pigeons can recognize human faces!
  • Their intelligence level is comparable to that of a 3 year old child!

Pigeons are intelligent, stable, and quiet companion birds who can form close bonds with their humans, but because they are somewhat uncommon as pets in the United States today, it can be challenging to research how to care for a pigeon, what do pigeons eat, or what to do when you find an injured pigeon. But Great Lakes Pigeon Rescue offers guidance for first-time pigeon owners. If you need help figuring out how to set up for your new friend, we have you covered. 

Did You Know We Can Ship Pigeons & Doves?

If you’re looking for a pigeon but don’t want to buy from a breeder, consider adoption, even if you’re not in the Great Lakes region. We offer shipping via USPS to anywhere in the US as long as two-day shipping is available from us to you, weather permitting. So far, we’ve sent pigeons to at least 36 states!   

There are lots of ways to help for the pigeon enthusiast for whom ownership is not an option, like purchasing a pigeon tee shirt, sponsoring an individual bird, or picking out an item to send from the Pigeon Wish List. We’d love to hear from you and to welcome you to the pigeon enthusiast community!
