Stella, the mourning dove's new friend. Stella is a domestic dove. People often release these doves at weddings or funerals but unfortunately they don't know how to fend for themselves in the wild. She was found starving to death and brought to the Center for Wildlife. If you want to release something at a wedding (or funeral) white pigeons
are the way to go.


  1. Stella is very pretty, I hope she will be okay.
    Sunny :)

  2. What a beautiful dove. We used to raise them when I grew up. They are quite friendly and I agree, I can't see them doing well in the wild. White pigeons a much better choice for release. Love and Light, Nina P.

  3. Right on!

    People can be so ignorant when it comes to animals...
