Ducks are wonderful pets and make good watchdogs too. I have a few duck and their "noise" is fantastic to listen to. All animal noices are music to the ear.

Anything you can send will enable Eunice and her daughter to care for the ducks at Duck Haven!

In addition to the loss of their long-time sponsor, Eunice's daughter got laid off her job recently so that also impacts what they can contribute and do for the ducks in their care. Anything you can send them is appreciated - the ducks have your gratitude! :)
