Adopt Ducks




About

Join us **VIRTUALLY** on Facebook on Sunday, August 25th at 3:00 PM as hundreds of yellow rubber ducks will take a swim at the Camp McGee pool to raise money for our rescue! You can be part of the action by adopting a duck! The adopted ducks will be assigned a number (written on the bottom of each duck) and will go swimming during the event. Once the ducks have swum a few laps, our duck patrol will wrangle them up and randomly pick the winners for cash prizes and more!

THIS IS A VIRTUAL EVENT ONLY. We will be live streaming this event on our Facebook page.

Donations allow us to save more dogs as the funds raised go right back into our rescue. The more ducks you adopt the greater the chance you will win a prize. Duck adoptions are a $5.00 donation and there is no limit to the number of ducks you can adopt!

What happens to all the ducks?
Volunteers collect the ducks from the event, give them each a warm bath, and rest them until next years duck pluck!
