Y.A.W.S working with Vets saving a Collard Dove - Aireworth calls

Updated: Jan 20, 2019

We often get calls from vets in the West Yorkshire area, we work with numerous vets across the county, and this is no exception we get a call from Adel at Aireworth vets in Keighley after a member of the public took in a collard dove squab.

The team at Aireworths kept the baby for a few days when we collected the little dove and transferred her to Y.A.W.S Lisa who held her for a week to ensure she was feeding by herself. When Lisa was confident the little dove could feed itself, Lisa transferred her with another in her care to a release aviary to further her development and get them ready for a life in the wild.
