Ducks & Geese Need You! Be a Waterfowl Warrior!

by Pacific Waterfowl Rescue Vetted since 2017 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit

Summary

At Pacific Waterfowl Rescue we rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome domestic ducks & geese. Domestic waterfowl are often the forgotten or unimportant birds of the animal kingdom. They are often dumped at public lakes and parks where they suffer from malnutrition, illness, or injury from predators. Avian veterinary care to treat sickness and injury is expensive and is our highest operating expense. These birds need Waterfowl Warriors willing to donate to save their lives!

Challenge

Our largest challenge is raising enough funds for veterinary care. One of our geese was diagnosed with a ventriculus obstruction that almost took her life. Thankfully, she recovered fully. The total cost including veterinary hospitalization, medications, and aftercare was close to $2750. We have struggled to raise the full amount of veterinary funds needed and have had to delay veterinary treatment for other birds that need it. One of those delays cost a bird a permanent walking disability.

Solution

Our current 2018 budget for veterinary care is $12,000. As of 6/30/2018, we have spent $11,500 for veterinary care making us about 50% over budget. We need ongoing monthly donations to provide veterinary care. It allows us to seek treatment early and prevent any permanent health problems or disabilities.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impact is a high quality of life for domestic ducks and geese thus improving their chance for adoption to approved life-long, loving homes.
