Foster Tails 2023: Knight Rider

SHARE:

Read about Knight Rider's stay with a volunteer foster parent to determine whether the bird would do well in a home.

Left to my own devices, I’d bring home every animal I could find. I love birds, but also dogs and mice and reptiles and rabbits and everything else that lives and breathes. Reality dictates I cannot have all of these animals, so I foster them. I provide all the love and care until DCHS can find them a new home. One of the more unusual animals DCHS placed at my house was Knight Rider the pigeon, who appeared to like people. We needed to know if he would do well in someone’s home. I was enamored with him, and he was happy to spend time on a shoulder or the back of the couch for movie night. Not only that, he was curious to share whatever we were eating for dinner, and completely baffling for the parakeets that live at our house full time.
