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.

                   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!


Marvin was a human-imprinted Khaki Campbell who was dropped off in somenone's front yard. He was one of the FRIENDLIEST ducks we've ever had at our sanctuary. He followed us around, ran up and gave just about everyone hugs--he was just an all around good boy.

Upon arriving we matchedhim up with Lil Ms. Bee (Indian Runner/Khaki Campbell hybrid) who came from an unsanitary, hoarding situation. She was the first duck he'd ever seen and wasn't sure quite what to make of her, but... they quickly fell madly in love.

Marvin waited at our sanctuary for his new home for 5 years before passing away unexpectedly. He had been diagnosed with a heart murmur, which was one of the reasons we think people passed on adopting him.

Marvin passed away on 10/27/17 and will be forever missed by all who knew him...

Marvin & Bee, Marvin & Bee
They'll go down in history
They're Marvin & Bee...

Marvin, Marvin, Marvin
God made him out of clay,
Marvin, Marvin, Marvin
He follows Bee all day!

Marvin, Marvin, Marvin
God made him out of clay,
Marvin, Marvin, Marvin
He follows ME all day!
