Our 2015 Pen Rebuild is Complete !
Our two new pens are finished! The Gate House and The Gardens are both finished, but wait...
We've decided to change the name of our 25' x 35' duck pen to honor the memory of one of our dear ducky rescues and her adoptive family who took such amazing care of her (and also of us!).
Hear ye, hear ye, The Gardens will henceforward be known as... wait for it... wait for it...
Next year we begin working on Abby's Goose Run--our final rebuild project!
Volunteer Clean-Up Day
We're looking for volunteers with pick-up trucks to help us out on Saturday, November 7th @ 10:00 a.m.
Please let us know right away if you can be at our sanctuary to help.
We'll load up your vehicles with materials from our torn down pens (lumber and rolls of wire) and then we'll all head off in caravan style on a five minute journey up the street. There, we'll rid ourselves of theser remnants of our old pens at our local waste disposal facility.
PLEASE... We don't have a truck of our own and we really need YOUR help! The more volunteers we have, the less trips we'll all have to make.

For each additional $27.00 donation you give, we'll send an additional calendar to the same address.
Calendar measures 8.5" x 11" and are of very high quality--nothing flimsy about them.
You'll never miss another "Mother Goose Day," "Step in a Puddle & Splash Day," or "Draw a Bird Day" again (and YES these special occasions are absolutely real; we didn't make them up)!
Calendars feature major Christian and Jewish holidays along with a whole slew of important pet holidays as well.
Deadline to donate is: Midnight on Black Friday, November 27, 2015.
In order for everyone's calendars to arrive in time for Christmas we must place our entire order immediately following this deadline. This means if you procrastinate, you'll be out of luck--so don't wait!
As many of our Facebook followers already know, Waverly duck managed to break her toe in her flat pen with a sloped-bank pond, which just goes to show how extremely delicate webbed feet truly are (as well as how clumsy duckies can be). Their feet are truly designed for water more than for land and even in the best pen set up, accidents can and do happen.
While she has blood flow through her toe all the way to the toenail, the infection in the tissue around the break is bad, despite antibiotics. The risk of a bone infection is high and the risk of future arthritis paining this toe is also very high.
In light of this, rather than keeping her still and hoping for the best case scenario for 6-8 weeks and ending up with an arthritic toe at best, we've opted to partially amputate off her broken toe at the point of the midway joint (removing all of the damaged bone and preserving all of her healthy bones). Part of her webbing will need to be removed, but our vet will angle the tissue and save as much as he can while also making sure it won't be prone to future accidental tearing.
Waverly's surgery is schedule for this Thursday, November 5th and we need your help to raise the $400-500 we need to get her waddling happily along again. Please donate if you can, and remember, every bit helps!
