Dejah Voo was dropped off and abandoned all alone in someone's yard in 2014. Only a month after arriving here at our sanctuary, this very talkative, friendly and curious girl went to join her new family, but when their living situation changed, she needed to come back to us for a safe place to stay.

Asaru was rescued in 2007 and has been adopted and returned to us twice because of changes in living situations. He's very sweet and a little shy--and the cutest little boy ever!

We would really like to find a permanent, safe and loving home for this beautiful pair of ducks!

***Special Considerations***

Asaru has lost vision in one eye due to cataracts. He can still get around extremely well and is otherwise very healthy. Even if he eventually loses vision in his other eye, ducks are quite adaptable. Since he follows Dejah Voo everywhere anyway, she would just act as his eyes.

Employees first noticed Moose on a pond near their business in the summer of 2016. They took to feeding him and building up his trust so that he could be safely rescued. After many months of diligent attempts, rescuers finally nabbed this gorgeous guy safely utilizing a net gun!

Moose is cross between a Muscovy and (judging by size and color) Rouen duck. Hybrid Muscovy ducks are referred to as "mules" because they are infertile. Since it is illegal to breed Muscovy ducks without a permit anyway, this shouldn't matter to his new owners.

Moose is currently a bit shy, but has come a long way since arriving at our sanctuary. 

***IMPORTANT***

About Muscovy ducks: Muscovy ducks make wonderful pets! They tend to be very interactive and even wag their tails when they're happy! Quieter than other ducks, males make a breathy "Huch-uch-cha" sound while females trill & squeak.

Special considerations: While we are interested in finding Moose his new and forever home, their new owners MUST have a predator proof pen with constant aviary covering/protection overhead because Muscovy ducks can (and do) fly and escape. Wing clipping is not enough--pens must be 100% secure. We do not want any Muscovy ducks escaping into the wild where they do not belong and are currently being destroyed in many areas.

Additional considerations: Muscovy ducks have facial caruncles, which are very susceptible to cold and frostbite. They need spacious indoor accommodations for freezing weather when they should not be allowed to venture outside for long intervals (short intervals on sunny afternoons is about their limit).

Mabel was dumped with a number of other Muscovy ducks. Efforts are underway to locate the person who abandoned them in order to press state and federal charges. It is illegal to release Muscovy ducks into the wild (Migratory Bird Treaty Act).

We are planning to introduce her to Moose and make them an adoptable pair.
