Although we do not sign contracts, this page represents the “handshake agreement” made when booking is done.
Release must be supervised by a “Wings of Praise” handler. The release time must be early enough to allow the doves to safely return home before dark. Typically this is 1 hour before sunset.
Doves will not be released and a full refund will be given if:
1. The wind is in excess of 30 mph
2. Heavy rain, fog, or snow
3. Threatening storms
The site must be pre-approved for safe flight distance and must be free of hazards.
Our doves are trained; nevertheless all animals can be unpredictable. Clients contracting for a release should do so with the understanding that anything can happen.
We do not feed the doves before an event to reduce the likelihood of “accidents.” Birds rarely do this in flight, but rather during resting periods.
We require payment in full prior to the event. We accept cash and checks. A $25 deposit is required to hold your date.
If inclement weather prevents release, the client will receive a full refund. We will work with you to try to display the doves indoors at the standard display rate of $75 if desired.
If we are unable to attend, a full refund will be given. If we are late, a full refund will be given and the doves will still be released.
