    HI, I don't know if you'll get this message in time, but I wanted to know if there was something you guys could do or if you could direct me to someone who could help down here in Columbus. . . .

    My friend at work, her neighbor got evicted and has ABANDONED 2 ducks (gender unknown), a hen, and a cat at the property. [​IMG]

    I can' take them because I haven't got a permit to have fowl in the city. Would it be possible to have someone come and rescue them on an emergency mission this afternoon? If not, do you know anyone in this area who could give them a good home?

    Thanks in advance!

    ON NO! Can you at least get food and water to them while you wait on a rescue? Are they inside or out?

    X2 - If you can get the word out to someone closer than us here in Florida, I'm sure some good-hearted soul will help. There's lots of helpful people on this site. Water is the main thing I'd worry about...those animals need to have water right away. Wish I was closer. Good luck.

    Try contacting Carolina Waterfowl Rescue-they may be able to hook you up with someone in your area that can help them!

    I know they aren't in your state, but I bet they can find someone who is.

    Hi! I live in Hilliard Ohio, right outside Columbus, and currently have a flock of runner-crosses roaming my yard! I have raised Ducks for 4-H, and I would love to take in your rescues. Tell me what you think about letting me take on your rescues.
