With the debut of the new Animal Planet show featuring the calming effect of pigeons, we at the American Racing Pigeon Union are reaffirmed in our belief that we have been sharing for many years – that the people who keep pigeons experience a calming respite when they go to their lofts to care for their pigeons.

The effect has proven beneficial to physically challenged and learning challenged youth.  That translates well to the calming effect on individuals who suffer from the post trauma effect of military combat.

One of the most exciting rewards in racing Homing Pigeons is that of “crossing the finish line first,” but the underlying gratification of pigeon keeping is the calming, settling connection with nature. 

To find out if the hobby suits you, the American Racing Pigeon Union has a helpful information packet that is free.
