Join the National White Dove Release Society
The NWDRS provides forums for members to share ideas and experience in the care of our birds, training and business practices. We are a professional organization of White Dove Release businesses. We uphold first the safety of our birds and the client by releasing only healthy, trained and banded white homing pigeons. We are proud members of the American Racing Pigeon Union and as such provide our "Gold" members the opportunity to purchase registered NWDRS/AU bands each year. All Gold Members have their own listing information on the Professional Listing page of the state where their particular service area is located. Additionally, there are promotional benefits for Gold Members such as various brochures that can be purchased in reasonable amounts; they are designed so you can personalize them with your personal identification.

"As a longtime pigeon racer (lifetime member of the AU), and active NWDRS member, I suggest to all fanciers to join the NWDRS. Having just a handful of white homers in one's loft for public release request from local police/fire dept. or church events, can be a great way to put pigeon racing in a good light of public opinion. It also helps alleviate potential zoning issues if you have support from city counsel & neighbors."
