Ducks and Geese Adopted

Here are photos of the ducks and geese that we have placed in permanent homes so far. We love to hear from their new families. If you have updated photos of a duck or goose you have adopted from us, or a story to share about them, please email us, so we can update this page for you.

Barney & Jessie were rescued from a pond where domestic ducks were slowly disappearing to predators. Barney runs right up to us to protest every time we get too close to Jessie. We take advantage of his bravado and give him a good belly rub, which he seems to enjoy!

Barney is a bit amorous when it comes to the ladies, so we were happy that his new home has another Pekin hen to help balance out his affections.

Barney & Jessie went to go live with the same family who adopted Victor Victoria the gander. We just love it when good families come back to us to adopt again.

Jessie had to have one of her inner toes amputated due to a very bad break, but aside from this she is perfectly healthy. She walks without a hitch and is a very happy girl who eats lettuce, watermelon and nightcrawlers out of our hands.

 


Benny arrived at our sanctuary in September of 2008. He was infested with lice, had dual eye infections, an injured left eye and a very serious limp caused by a damaged left knee joint. 

Under the guidance of our vet, Benny was cleared of all parasites and infection. His eyes were completely mended and he could see perfectly. He did have one bad knee and a severe limp, but he grew much stronger and spent the next two-and-a-half years walking happily through our sanctuary as one of our beloved retirees. He could get any place in his pen, he just needed a little more time to do it.

Benny was a very friendly boy who loved to swim and spend his days with the hens. His will was unmatched and if Benny wanted something, Benny got it, which also meant if Benny didn't want something, he would have no part of it. His actions and quacking would clearly state: "I don't wanna!" And that was the joy of Benny!

After a couple years in our sanctuary Benny slowly began to lose his mobility on land, but he still swam the day away!

But then... in his last month with us, he lost the last of his mobility. His bad leg not only confined him on land, but took away his desire to swim anymore... and then his appetite faded away as well. Medications kept him comfortable in his final days with us and then we brought him into our vet on August 2, 2011 and we held him in our arms while he gently let go of this world in light of the other. And that's where Benny waddles today--without any reminders of the limp he once had.

Benny's ashes have come back to our sanctuary where he will rest in peace forever.
