Major Duck Rescue in Orem
OREM: In October 2021, Orem City officials drained Neilson Grove Park as they do every winter to prevent people from going on the ice,...
For far too long we have had a problem with our local ponds becoming the dumping grounds for unwanted farm animals. Because of this, it is not only detrimental to the natural wildlife, but these domesticated animals are starving, getting injured, and facing unnatural predators.
Many don't even know the difference between a wild and domestic duck or that feeding bread is bad for them. We are here to educate, answer questions, and hopefully save lives.
We are a registered 501(c)3 non-profit. All donations are tax-deductible.
Please share any thoughts, questions, and comments and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
*Please note, we are not a rehoming service. We have many ducks we are looking to find homes for. First and foremost, we appreciate you not dumping your animals as it's illegal and a death sentence.
If you have to rehome your duck, I recommend listing them in your community groups, charging a rehoming fee, vetting the adopter, and ensuring they won’t be used for food or fighting rings. I would also ensure they lock up in predator-proof housing at night.
I'm RaeAnn, an animal lover, dedicated to trying to help as much as I can.
If you told me a few years ago, I would have a duck hospital in my basement and a sanctuary in my backyard, I would've laughed.
But once I educated myself on the problem, I had to step up, there's such a need.
Domestic ducks and geese have no resources to help them when left at a pond where they will not survive.
