Close to 100 ducks in need of ‘for­ever homes’

North Bay Nugget - - NEWS -

The On­tario SPCA and Hu­mane So­ci­ety is seek­ing car­ing adopters who would fit the bill to wel­come a duck into their life, as close to 100 ducks are cur­rently in need of homes. The large num­ber of Mus­covy-type ducks re­cently came into the care of the On­tario SPCA and are wait­ing pa­tiently at a foster farm to be adopted. The so­ci­ety would like to find them lov­ing homes where they will thrive, prefer­ably with own­ers who have bird or duck ex­pe­ri­ence.

The ducks come as the On­tario SPCA is in the midst of its ia­dopt for the Hol­i­days cam­paign. ia­dopt for the Hol­i­days runs un­til Dec. 31 at par­tic­i­pat­ing SPCAS, Hu­mane So­ci­eties and res­cue groups na­tion­wide to get as many an­i­mals as pos­si­ble placed into lov­ing homes dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son. Last year, more than 4,000 an­i­mals from across Canada found their for­ever homes dur­ing the ia­dopt for the Hol­i­days cam­paign.

“It’s not typ­i­cally ducks that we are try­ing to find homes for dur­ing our ia­dopt for the Hol­i­days cam­paign, but they needed our help and are now look­ing for a good home,” says Daryl Vail­lan­court, chief of hu­mane pro­grams & com­mu­nity outreach, On­tario SPCA. “With peo­ple hav­ing time off from work and be­ing home to­gether as a fam­ily, the hol­i­days are a great time to wel­come a new furry or feath­ered friend and help them get set­tled.”

If a duck is the right pet for you, call 1-888-668-7722 x 339 or email [email protected]­pca.on.ca to re­quest an adop­tion ap­pli­ca­tion.
