Majestic Farewell...

Steve-O... Another unexpected and heartbreaking diagnosis of cancer...
You were (and continue to be) so loved, and have left a hole so much larger than your own quack in so many hearts...

You were THE MOST devoted and protective duck we have ever known in all of our 15 years of rescuing. No one came anywhere near your Evie without your say-so and I promise, we will take over this role for you.
Safe journey, beloved boy...

Hidden Message Game WINNER!

Congratulations to Kim (& Watson) on their big win! As the only ones who responded to the game hidden in last month's newsletter, they were the instant winner of an adorable duck beanie hat!

COMING IN MAY:  Annual Blue Ribbon Photo Contest Fundraiser!

Our photo contest will run from May 1st through May 31st (closing at midnight EST). 

Early Bird Special! Photos entered between May 1st - 7th will qualify for this double-the-fun, TWO-FOR-ONE promotion. During this week, you will be able to submit up to TWO photos for a single $5.00 donation! REMEMBER: Photos and donations must all be received within this time period in order to qualify and, as always, PLEASE send your donation and photos through at the same time, so it's easy for us to match everything together.

Photo Contest Categories:

1)  The Most Photogenic category is for domestic ducks and geese. Enter a great photo of your pet!

2)  The Best Dressed category is for domestic ducks or geese in any kind of clothing--including diaper harnesses, costumes, fashion accessories, boots, etc. Please be sure your pet is safe, comfortable, and chaperoned at all times.

3)  The Most Velociraptor category is for any and ALL pet ducks and geese, including domesticated Mallards, ornamentals and exotics! Capture your pet duck or goose in a moment when they look like they should be starring in a Jurassic Park movie!

Please click here for Photo Contest Rules and helpful tips!

IF THEY LOOK LIKE A MALLARD, THEY MAY BE DISQUALIFIED! If you're entering a photo of a Rouen, Welsh Harlequin, Saxony, Silver Appleyard, Grey Call, Grey Indian Runner, or Mallard duck in the Most Photogenic or Best Dressed categories, you MUST specify their breed in your submission email. When it comes to the coloration of these particular breeds, it's not always easy for our judges to distinguish domestics from their wild cousins. In order to confirm your pet's eligibility in a particular category, please specify their breed... or else... risk disqualification.

Miss Hope was our 2019 Best Splash 1st Place WINNER!

Ribbon Sponsorships

Don't have a pet duck or goose, but still want to get in on the fun? You can be a Ribbon Sponsor! Ribbon sponsors cover the basic costs of this annual event (ribbons, packaging supplies & shipping), so that all the funds raised through photo entries go to our sanctuary--basically, you're funding our fundraiser and making all this fun possible.

Ribbon Sponsors have their name, or their business name, associated with a prize ribbon. We can also include a special message and a hyperlink to your website or Facebook page, or even put up an Instagram plug or hashtag. It's up to you!

Remember... Our panel of unbiased judges have no access to contestant or sponsor information, which means... Contestants can sponsor ribbons too!

To sponsor a ribbon, please Email us FIRST to confirm availability and then send along your Donation!
