Dreaming of a Chance’s mission is to rescue abandoned domestic pigeons from around the Hudson Valley and NYC and provide them with a forever home. We also strive to educate the public about proper bird care, the effects of abandonment on the environment, as well as how to spot and help abandoned domestic birds.
We opened at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic knowing that a ton of animals were going to be displaced due to the struggles the world was facing. After receiving so many inquiries to help, abandoned domestic pigeons quickly became our primary focus. Very few places are able to help take in domestic pigeons around NY and in our opinion, they need help the most.
Abandoning a bird puts them at extreme risk of death by predators. If they are lucky enough to survive predation, starvation, dehydration, injuries or disease claim them. Domestic birds have no survival skills and many have been genetically modified to decrease flight capabilities putting them more at risk.
Volunteers help us care for all these once abandoned birds that call our sanctuary home and create a support system that enables us to help more. Volunteers are an integral part in helping us further our mission and are able to help in a variety of ways. Since our start, we have helped over 120 birds. This is thanks to wonderful individuals like you. We would love to have you as part of our team. Let us know if you're interested in volunteering.
