Thanks for the information Iain Utah. You are right; oftentimes it is the wee people who move the world. The local SPCA where I live is fantastic (Montreal, Quebec). They do great work and frequently go into emergency mode when bad rescues (think of gruesome ways to euthanise) finally get shut down. Moreover, every lease/rental expires on the first of July. It is known as Montreal Moving Day. Hundreds of cats, dogs, ferrets, bunnies, and ducks are simply dumped. We have done our bit for cats and dogs, trying to help where we can, but there is a gaping hole for farm animal rescues.
I offered to help our local this spring and we now have three adolescent ducklings (Pekin, White Muscovy, and something Aylesbury-like) finally wandering around with our other critters. This is Nothing compared to the work, heartache, and money that you put into the goose rescue. Well done and Thank you.
