Due to the alarming number of domestic ducks hatched 12 at a time in school classrooms and the selling of ducklings at Easter time as temporary Easter basket toys for children, we are unable to take in every injured and abandoned domestic duck that is left abandoned in Los Angeles and surrounding counties. The numbers are astounding and overwhelming. Therefore, we are going after the contributing sources of this on-going atrocity to have the behavior stopped once and for all. We are focusing on educating everyone involved in this cruel cycle as well as the people in power to do something about it. We invite the animal-loving public to speak out on this issue whenever and wherever possible to bring this hideousness to an end.
