In the last 6 years, Pacific Waterfowl Rescue has rescued over 400 ducks and geese and we have made over 200 trips to the veterinarian to get treatment for sick or injured birds (some birds with multiple visits). We have experienced many joys and also suffered painful losses during this time.
It is with great sadness that I have to announce the closing of Pacific Waterfowl Rescue. There are many factors involved in this decision and the decision was not easy to make.
The need for domestic waterfowl rescue is huge. People continue to dump ducks and geese in public areas or purchase them as cute babies and then realize they are too much work. We receive multiple requests a week to take in ducks and it breaks my heart that we cannot accept them. I hope there may be others in the future who have the necessary resources and can step up to continue this very important work.
Our goal is to be completely dissolved as a non-profit organization by July 31, 2021. This GlobalGiving project will be deactivated on June 30. You will need to stop your monthly donation prior to that. All funds left in our account at time of closing will be donated to the following the organizations.
Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary – Stockton, CA
Blackberry Creek Farm Animal Sanctuary – Colfax, CA
Zinger Ranch Farm Sanctuary – Vacaville, CA
The rescue birds remaining will continue to be cared for as we continue to seek out adopters. We are so grateful for your support over the last 6 years and thank you for being a #WaterfowlWarrior and making a difference in the lives of domestic ducks and geese.
In gratitude and love, Lorraine Aubert – President/Executive Director Pacific Waterfowl Rescue
