Thank You, Contestants!

We would like to thank ALL of our marvelous contestants this year for helping us raise over $650.00 for our sanctuary!

Thank you for making such an amazing difference in the lives of our rescued ducks and geese by sharing photos of your very own special feathered friends with the world!

Thank You, Judges!

After 3 hours of judging, we would like to extend a special "Thank You!" to all of our Poppa Mallard Day judges. We know it wasn't easy picking winners when there were so many amazing contestants! Thank you so much for your tireless efforts!

And for all their hard work... sometimes it's a good idea to stop and play a good game of Drinking Duck Sorry!
