Mission Statement

We are a team of volunteers who rescue, transport, foster, and care for orphaned and abandoned Muscovy ducks and ducklings. Once we have the ducks checked for injury and illness, we move them on to their Forever Families who must fit our criteria for adoption.

Description

The Situation

You found three cute, little Muscovy ducklings wandering around on the sidewalk peeping their little heads off. They lost their mom, and you can’t find her anywhere.

Obviously, you can’t leave them out there all alone, so you scoop them up and put them in a box with a towel in the bottom and keep them warm. Now, what do you do? You can’t keep them; you aren’t equipped to raise three ducks. You find out about a veterinarian in the area who will take the ducklings. Problem solved.

Unfortunately, taking them to a vet would result in their euthanasia; rehabbers don't deal with them because they aren't indigenous, and leaving them would cause them to likely die.

Enter the Muscovy Sanctuary of Florida, a place where Muscovy ducklings can safely grow and thrive without the fear of being killed. We are a non-profit organization created to take in those Muscovy ducklings that veterinarians and wildlife rehabbers don’t want.
