Murdoch was a Blue Swede duck who was transferred to us from another
shelter in 2014 after being pulled from a neglectful hoarding situation.
Weighing just over 4 pounds, she was emaciated, had suffered a leg injury, had
poor feather quality and was missing one eye.
We began remedying all of her health conditions and we were
able to get 1 1/2 pounds on her prior to her eye surgery. We did a complete
avian profile blood panel to make sure she was in tip-top shape for her
Sadly... After completing the entire operation without any
difficulties, she failed to wake up from anesthesia. This was the first time

Connie's family, and we were eager to have her start her new happy life with

Mickey was only 7
weeks old when he was dropped off in Mystic Village with his sibling. Sadly, his
little partner did not survive. Mickey was severely traumatized when he arrived
at our sanctuary on 5/8/14 and it took a lot of gentle love and care to get him
Because our sanctuary is in
the midst of a rebuild project, we could not accommodate Mickey, so a week after
his arrival (after considerably reducing his stress level), he was transferred
to Nevins Farm MSPCA. He was adopted on June 2nd and joined his new family who
love their ducks and have a fawn & white runner named Dave.
