Foster Care

Here is a dove in rehab (where, and by whom, I do not know). The note that came with these pictures says she is unreleasable, being one-legged. The rehabber who keeps her took in 5 bunnies, two of which almost immediately died. Then the dove, remarkably, decided to foster the remaining three.

Here are photos of her doing her mothering thing

I'm told the bunnies thrived! That makes the dove a better rehabber than I am. I can only keep 'em alive (most of the time) if I get them AFTER their eyes open.

Everyone and every living thing needs a little love to thrive and survive. It is nice to know that even a "disabled" dove still has a purpose.

Thanks for sharing these.
