August 29 was supposed to be the slaughter date for 15 beautiful ducks (originally 14 but we were able to rescue one more!) who we're calling The 14er Flock, named after Colorado's tallest mountains. If we didn't step up, they would all be dead today.
These 15 girls were living on a farm that raises ducks for food: the boys are killed for meat and the girls are exploited for eggs.
These girls ended up costing the farm more money than they could make for them, so the farm was going to kill them. They're still so young – that would be like killing a teenager.
Though they were considered 'worthless' by the farm, they want and deserve to live. So when we heard about the situation, we just couldn't say no.
Now that The 14er Flock is safe, they need sponsors to support their care. As a sponsor, you'll receive:
- Certificate with your duck's story
- Photo of your sponsored duck
- 1-1 visit with your sponsored animal once a year
- Complimentary membership to the Sanctuary
You can also make a lifesaving donation of any size that would be so much appreciated. Thank you!
