About Us

aviary
Our main focus is the rescue and rehabilitation of domestic ducks. We are not urban farmers and we do not eat animals or animal products. We never breed or buy animals. They are not ours to use. They exist for their own reasons and they deserve all our compassion and care.

We take in abused, injured, sick and discarded ducks and nurse them back to health before finding safe forever homes for them. Since we began rescuing in 2004, we’ve cared for over 100 ducks, chickens, geese, pigeons and even a turkey.


This site would not be possible if not for the wonderful little light of our lives, Mr Flapper Duck. He has passed on, but his bright spirit inspires us every day to live compassionately and do all we can do to reduce the suffering of animals.

In June 2014 we relocated from Seattle, WA to Salt Lake City, UT to be near our aging parents. We have a new PO Box if you’d like to send something.

  1. you have made an awesome website! great great respect to Mr. Flapper Duck the angel of a bird he was! God bless his soul!! Wish you loads of success! May you grow leaps and bounds! we need an International Quack Federation for Ducks and Geese!

  2. I believe that nothing is by chance. Thanks to an email by Christine L. I found this blog and wonderful stories and photos of feathered Friends…which reminded me of Mr. Flapper. I met him and loved him for protesting w/ his Mom against foie gras in front of a Seattle restaurant! Wonderful rescue work Tiffany! I am sure they are all quacking thank you with me!

  3. Its a beautiful thing that you do.

  4. I came across this blog by chance. I’m a vegan & animal enthusiast, particularly of the avian kind. Perhaps someday I can have a place large enough to do rescues as well, your site is inspirational. Please contact me if you know of any Ontario (Canada) duck rescues, as we’re looking to adopt one that needs a home. 🙂

  5. I love your comments above. this is the exact kind of website i’d like to set up. i’ve been keeping and caring for ducks for two years now. it all started when i rescued a tiny wild mallard duckling, raised her to adulthood and one evening at sundown, when she was ready, she went up on the roof, stood for a while lifting her head and looking around then, in one beautiful motion of flapping wings she flew literally south toward the summer sunset. I miss her but she has returned on about four occasions for a brief visit, some duck crumble and then she’s off again for months at a time.

    I want to do what you are doing and have started putting word out on my youtube channel about my plans. I have a lot to learn but i can visit your channel now and learn as i go.

    Thank you for your kind care of earths animals and for teaching us to properly respect them and not use them for our own selfish purposes. that’s something i’m working on. it’s a mindset to build in one self i think.

  6. our duck is having some wing feather problems. We did take him to a vet, who prescribed some meds, and peroxide treatments…hasnt got any better. I cant find any pics anywhere online that even look close. I think he has some kind of bug on him, but cant ever see anything. If I sent some pics, think anyonme might be able to help?
