This page is updated when we take in new rescues that require veterinary care or special transport. PLEASE NOTE: We are not a non-profit so donations are NOT tax deductible. But every cent goes towards veterinary care and medications for our rescues.
Our rescue fund was started in memory of Kozmo Kirby duck. He was the son of Flapper & Georgie (who have also passed on).
Kozmo Kirby was a big lug of a duck with a sweet, lovable personality. If you donate to this fund, it is definitely “for a good Koz.” All donations go towards veterinary care, food and travel expenses related to rescuing waterfowl.
NOTE: Donations are NOT tax deductible. We are NOT a non-profit.
No funds are used to care for our permanent resident “family members.” Funds are only for current rescues (not rescues we decided to keep in the past who are now family).
These are just some of the rescued animals helped by generous donations to the Kozmo Kirby Memorial Fund. Thank you for your donations!
