Pet of the Week – A Bird?

Don’t get all atwitter now. We know when you think of an animal shelter you think of a place full of dogs and cats, but shelters these days have many different animals for adoption.

There are rabbits, chickens, a turtle, and yes, birds!

We have several but consider our pigeon. This beauty is a colorful racing pigeon that has lost its way. If you have an aviary, this bird would make a wonderful addition to it.

The adoption fee is just $5, and you can meet this delightful bird at 2481 Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad. The animal identification number is A1592814.

For more information on this bird or any of our other unusual animals, call (619) 767-2675 or visit
