Oliver renamed "Po" was rescued from a pond where he had been
abandoned with nearly a dozen other Pekin ducks, none of whom survived.
We found a loving new home for Ollie even
before his rescuer could catch him. After a brief stay with us,
he went on his way to join his new family, which includes two
girlfriends for him to love!
Gretta (a female Cayuga duck formerly "Jemma") came to
us from the MSPCA. We adopted her out and she went to live with Twoee
(male Rouen). Afterwards, her family had to move, so we found another home for
them to join.
Gretta & Twoee's new family had to unexpectedly move to
CA and could no longer
keep the pair, so we found them ANOTHER safe and loving new home that should
last them forever this time around.
Rowena was raised indoors on human food. She has never seen the great outdoors, but her owner was about to abandon her on a pond. Fortunately, the word got out and a rescuer brought her straight to us instead.
We went straight to work acclimating Rowena into life as an outdoor duck, which included her first pond swims and meeting other ducks. Her new life also includes vet care, a high quality diet and... a new family! Rowena's introduction to a flock of 9 femal runners went extremely well and we were so happy to be there when she met her new sisters!
Jess was found abandoned on a pond. Although property owners gave our rescuers permission to safely remove her, the locals living around the pond, didn't understand why domestic ducks don't belong in the wild.
In the end she made it safely to us and was adopted soon after arriving at our sanctuary.
Zelda is a very friendly girl who arrived
at a vet office with a severe abscess in her right foot in October of 2014. Faced with expensive
surgery and a dutiful regime of post-surgical care, her family had opted to
euthanize her, but... her vet happened to know us and called to see if we were
willing to step up to the plate. And that we did!
Zelly-Belly made an amazing recovery and became one of our fastest ducks ever as she raced down from the barn, over the gradient slope and into our fenced-in pond for a day of swimming. Unfortunately in April of 2016 she managed to slip and dislocate her knee. Sadly, she passed away during her second operation to try to fix the joint back together.
A joyful little duck, she will be dealy missed...
Luyah is a little Call duck who was rescued from the wild where he likely was abandoned or escaped. Call ducks can fly, so without a proper aviary, they can accidentally lose their way.
Luyah proved himself quite friendly and found his new home within days of his arrival at our sanctuary!
