Q: Help! 2 Ducks were dropped off!!

Sherice  W.

Someone dropped 2 ducks at a pond by my home and their wings are clipped. I feed them everyday, but I cannot keep them. I need to find a Hobby Farm in Central Florida that will take them and not eat them. They are not scared of people.. The bad thing is we have a hurricane coming and I am hoping to get them out of the pond before it hits. If not would it be safe from them to be put into a large dog cage in my garage until the strom passes? I think they are Mascovey Ducks. They are pretty safe in the pond, but I am afraid they will get hurt. Thank you for any help.. HELP ME!!!!

There are many duck health care tips in the duck lovers everywhere group. You're welcome to read stuff there. You might want to join that group and post your question there too so other duck owners might respond with what they do.

As far as emergency preparedness, you should read what the professionals says to do in emergency situations with your pets. It's all available online. I hope the storm misses your general area. Good luck and I hope you and all your pets make it through the storm.

Here are some websites with emergency preparedness for pets

www.fema.gov/plan/prepare/animals.shtm

www.aspca.org/site/PageServer?pagename=pets_emergency

If there are words attached to the link then you'll need to add those words to the url. Sometimes this site gets a little buggy with links.
