Dove releases have a beautiful and meaningful impact at events ranging from weddings to graduations. However, there are some incorrect beliefs out there about the safety and kindness of this practice for the doves. The handlers at A Sign of Peace White Dove Releases in Erlanger, KY, would like to explain why a dove release is a harmless and lovely practice to add to your celebration.
Why a Bird Release Isn’t Harmful to the Doves
They Return Safely Home
The doves used in a release are actually specially trained homing pigeons. Homing pigeons have been utilized for thousands of years—often in sending messages—because they can use the position and angle of the sun to find their way to their home base. Their remarkable sense of direction and mapping allows them to do this, even if they are released in an area that is unfamiliar to them. So, when you see them flying away at your ceremony, there’s no need to worry about what will happen to them. They’re just getting some exercise on their way home!
They Are Closely Cared For
Another misconception may be about the care of the birds when they are not at your event. However, the white doves used by A Sign of Peace White Dove Releases are loved and cared for just like personal companion animals. They are fed, watered, and given all the attention and space they need. Because they are so well cared for, they will be beautiful and well-trained additions to your event.
