I've been adopted!
How this pet arrived: Alex was brought in by their previous owner on November 17, 2020 with Hayden #705244, Blake #705245, and Peyton #705247.
Why this pet is the one for you: Are you looking to bring some aviary joy to your home? Well, look no further. Alex came in to SDHS from an overwhelmed owner. Alex and the other doves have been treated for lice, so it'll be important to quarantine them from any other birds you may have in the home. It is important for doves to have large cages, especially wider ones. The cage should be at least 18in x 22in x18in. The bigger the better, especially if you plan to house more than one dove in it. Doves are social birds and often mate for life. It is important that you adopt Alex with one of the other doves that came from the same home. Offer a variety of perch styles and of varying diameters, which will help promote good foot health in your dove. Doves also need opportunities for bathing. Doves need grit in their diet because they eat their seeds whole. Provide several types of grit, as well as a calcium supplement. With proper care, most doves live between 12-15 years, some have even been known to live into their 20s!
