    Hi! I'm moving to a new house soon, and where I'm moving, I won't have any space for my doves. I currently have 13 of them. I've called around, but I'm having difficulty finding a place where I can donate my doves. If there is someone from the Sacramento, CA area (or surrounding cities like Elk Grove, Rancho Cordova, Roseville, etc), that knows where I can donate doves, it would be greatly appreciated.

    I would try Craigslist, but I'm never sure about the buyers. I rather donate them to a pet store, or some place similar where I know they'll be taken care of.

    I was told to call around and try feed stores, but the one I called said they could only accept two. Are there any other feed stores around my area that would accept doves? If people around my area knows, that would be lovely!

    EDIT: Never mind, I just found a place after calling around some more.

    Great! I'm glad! If, for some reason, though, your arrangement doesn't end up working out, here's a great place that you could also look into.

    I wouldn't donate or even sell to pet stores as they never care decent even generally when there, n don't care who they sell to.. for food, sacrifice, kids killing for fun, wedding people who would release then leave them to starve or die slowly fro predator attacks etc.
    Thirteen doves could easily be kept out on porch or inside in apartment cage measuring forty foot square.
