This group is dedicated to alleviating the plight of individual urban feral pigeons. It is the rescue and rehabilitation center for those who seek information in order to help a pigeon and to network with rehabilitators who can take the bird in for care. We are in NYC but glad to try to help with any kind of bird or animal anywhere.
If you have found a pigeon in distress (injured, orphaned, ill or lost), please join this group or submit a Help!
request. Please provide as much info as you can including contact info and location.
For urgent medical emergencies immediately contact a vet or one of these organizations:
Wild Bird Fund
Sean Casey Animal Rescue
718-436-5163, Kensington, Brooklyn
Join this group and read the instruction pages in this group's "Links" folder. Start with "Found a Pigeon in Distress?".
Please understand that this is an all-volunteer group. The City has no provision for pigeon care, and housing for recovering birds is very limited, so you may need to care for your rescue yourself, at least until other arrangements can be made.
Thank you for being among the few who care enough about the difficult lives of these wonderful birds to have come here and joined us in trying to make a difference by helping a New York City pigeon.

These overlapping groups represent a core of people involved not only with caring for individual pigeons in distress, but also with changing attitudes and laws to reduce the abuse to which pigeons and other animals are so often
