Our Release Policy
1. We maintain only properly banded, healthy, white homing pigeons who are well
trained to return home when released. They are the only type of white bird that can be trained to fly home.
The release of untrained pigeons or any other type of white bird is an unacceptable alternative because they are unable to navigate home or survive in the wild.
2. We release our trained birds only from distances from which they can safely
3. We release our birds only when there is sufficient time for them to return
home prior to sunset.
4. We will only release our birds outside and only under favorable weather
conditions that allow them to safely navigate home.
Inclement weather such as rain, thunderstorms, fog, high winds, and snow
are conditions in which our birds cannot safely navigate. We use a weather
app to help us decide if our birds can be safely released. In the event that the
conditions are not safe, we will not release our birds and you will not be
5. We ensure that an experienced, punctual, properly attired coordinator
accompanies our birds to each event. Our birds are only released by Dream
Doves. We do not release our birds to anyone who is not part of our team.
6. Our goal is to enhance your event with a flawless release and to assure a safe flight home for our birds.
