Outside Farewells...

Letting go is one of the most painful things a Momma Duck has to do... There's never enough time... Never enough snuggles and kisses, or random feathers blowing across the floor like tumbleweeds... Oh, how you were LOVED, you dear little Sco-Vee...

Yet another painful loss this month... Oh, darling Puff The Duck, what a special helper you were to your Momma, giving her so much pom-pom therapy, so much love, so many feather cuddles... You were such a blessing to each other...  Soar high... Soar high...

The Month in Photos!

Evie makes a full recovery!

Oreo is another success story!

Lincoln is still a work in progress!

Annual Fundraising Photo Contest!

Our annual Duck-Duck-Goose photo contest is officially undereway and open WORLDWIDE!

1st, 2nd & 3rd place ribbons will be awarded in each of the following categories:

Most Photogenic

Photos should show off your pet duck or goose. Remember... our judges prefer sharp, clear photos that showcase your pet's personality (that little sparkle in their eye). 

This category is for domestic ducks and geese only (this includes Muscovy ducks!). All feathered friends appearing in the photo must be domestic.

Best Nap

Photos should capture your pet duck or goose in the midst of a nice snooze... zzz... They can be alone or snuggled up with a friend.

This category is for domestic ducks and geese (again, this includes Muscovy ducks). All feathered friends featured in the photo must be domestic.

Best Mud on Face

Photos can be literal--actual mud on your duck or goose's face, OR... you can capture any embarrassing/scandalous moment in your duck or goose's day.

This year's photo contest closes at Midnight EST on June 15th. All photos and entry donations must be received by this time in order to be officially entered. Our winners will be announced in our July 1st newsletter!

Sco-vee was our 2017 "Most Comical " 1st Place Winner!

Ribbon Sponsorships

Don't have a duck or goose, but still want to get in on the fun? We still have a few Ribbon Sponsorships available! Ribbon Sponsors have their name or their business's name associated with a prize ribbon. We can also include a special message and a hyperlink to your website or Facebook page!

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