Ranger Rilo's gorgeous eyes
Rilo & Ranger were rescued from a pond together on
12/12/10. Both boys had been on our waiting list for months, and despite the fact
that our pens were full, we gave rescuers
the go-ahead to bring them to us when ice encroached around them threatening their lives.
Rilo & Ranger were not just best buddies, but boyfriends! Early attempts to introduce ladies into their pen were entirely unsuccessful.
We never found a new home for these fellows, so our sanctuary became their forever home (lucky us!).
In 2016 Rilo began succumbing to debilitating arthritis and needed some personal assistance getting from barn to pond, but once on the water--boy was he happy! By 2017 Ranger also began showing signs of arthritis. While medications, laser therapy, hydrotherapy and vet care were all employed to delay these processes as much as possiblie, in the end, both boys lost full mobility and no longer displayed an interest in any activities.
Their last few days were spent side-by-side n the warm and breezy air beneath their shared cherry tree and their nights were spent in cozy nests of hay. When the time came, we brought both boys to our vet together on June 29, 2017, so we could gently ease them over to the other side at the same time, so they could find their way to that heavenly fountain in one another's company... Never divided, never apart.
Senora was rescued from a busy street where she was dropped off with two other geese. Senora arrived at our sanctuary on 3/22/16 and is a very serene goose. She is a bit shy, but likes other geese and enjoys watching the ducks in the neighboring pen.
Senora was adopted by a wonderful and loving famiy and is now spending her days with her new boyfriend Winkin!
Miku, Luka & Rin a.k.a. "The Pom Pom Gang"were among ten young ducks who were dropped off and abandoned at a condo complex. Locals believe they were hatched out at a nearby high school and then dumped off by a teacher. They will be pursuing the issue further in an attempt to put a stop to this neglectful and irresponsible practice.
These are friendly little ducks who come right up to greet us, are open to being held and petted and who love healthy treats (watermelon, lettuce, dried meal worms, nightcrawlers) and who love the garden hose--SPLASHING is FUN!!!
This beautiful trio went off to a family with a female duck named Daisy who has never known what it's like to have friends before. We're sure she's in for a wonderful surprise!
