Because our doves are precious, we take every precaution to protect them and assure their safety. We are a member of the International White Dove Society and adhere to their standards also. Therefore, when you book with us, you must understand and agree to the following:
We release only well trained, well cared for WHITE DOVES from white racing pigeon stock. These are also known as Rock Doves or Columba livia. One of our professionally trained handlers must be present; we will not ship birds for self-release.
We will NOT release birds indoors, at night, or beyond a range that they are able to safely fly home before dark. Our service area extends north from Fort Collins south to Littleton, east to Aurora and west to Boulder.
We will not release so late in the day that they don't have time to return to their home loft. We can arrange for a dove display for nighttime events where the doves are not released. To check the time of sunset in our area throughout the year, click Here.
Forms of Payment: We accept on-line payments through PayPal with Visa, MasterCard, and Discover Card, checks and cash (exact amount only). Please contact us for instructions on paying by check or cash.
Deposit/Reservation: A $75 deposit is due at the time of reservation. We accept pay pal, check, cash, credit card, or money orders. To make a reservation, please complete and "submit" the "Inquiry From Website" form found on the "Contact Us" page of this website. We will then send you a Contract for your dove release to be returned to us with your deposit.
Cancellation Policy: We will not release birds if the conditions become unsafe, indoors, at night, or during bad weather, such as bitter cold temperatures, high winds, driving rain, or blowing snow. What constitutes unsafe conditions is at the discretion of Memory Chain Lofts. If conditions become unacceptable for the release to take place due to bad weather, acts of God, etc., we will refund all monies and deposits. Birds in the display cages may still be part of your celebration.
IF CANCELLATION IS MADE TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO THE RELEASE, A FULL REFUND WILL BE GIVEN. IF CANCELLATION IS MADE LESS THAN TWO WEEKS FROM THE EVENT, THE DEPOSIT WILL NOT BE REFUNDED.
