Who are Little Green Pigeon?
We are a Pigeon sanctuary based in Aberaeron, West Wales.
Our on line shop sales go directly towards running the sanctuary (we are a not for profit business - Community Interest Company) and we also have a physical shop in Aberaeron itself open Tues, Weds, Thurs, Fri and Saturday 1030am until 4pm.
The products we sell are designed in house with love, care and attention to detail, or are bought from Vegan or ethically led artists and designers who care about our environment and fellow creatures.
Our L.G.P. printing and packaging is VEGAN and our garment suppliers have PETA recognition.
Meet the flock;
Susan Joyce -
I'm Sue ! I started out in life as an R.V.N. in Veterinary Practice.
I worked in several practices in the midlands, the final one being a Veterinary Hospital in the West Midlands where I was the Patient Co-ordinator.
I opened one of the first Dog Daycare centres in the UK in Staffordshire where me and my staff looked after 30 dogs each day - this was my dream business! After several happy years, a fall from a bridge fractured my back in several places and meant I could not walk for a while. Regrettably, I had to close this business.
I went to work back at a Veterinary hospital and this is where my journey as a bird carer really began.
I ran a bird rescue along side work for many years, and in 2020 I received enough support to allow me to stop any other work and draw a small wage from L.G.P which means I can look after patients while fundraising and designing shop products.
To raise funds for the sanctuary, we sell our products here on our website and in our shop in Aberaeron We also sell our L.G.P. products to selected suppliers in the UK such as Garden centres and animal supply stores. You can also sponsor our birds.
I've been vegetarian since age 8 and Vegan for the last 11 years.
Matt joined LGP in 2023 just after the move the Wales. Matt runs our social media, works on the website with Sue and helps out when he can in the shop.
He takes great photos and videos of the birds and is always on hand to help Sue with the weekly clean outs.
Matt worked as a zoo keeper for many years in the conservation sector - before realising that he didn't agree with the industry at all! He went vegan over night and has never looked back.
