FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Stouffville, ON (December 4, 2018) – The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society is seeking caring adopters who would fit the bill to welcome a duck into their life, as close to 100 ducks are currently in need of homes.

The large number of Muscovy-type ducks recently came into the care of the Ontario SPCA and are waiting patiently at a foster farm to be adopted. The Society would like to find them loving homes where they will thrive, preferably with owners who have bird or duck experience.

The ducks come as the Ontario SPCA is in the midst of its iAdopt for the Holidays campaign. iAdopt for the Holidays runs until Dec. 31 at participating SPCAs, Humane Societies and rescue groups nation wide to get as many animals as possible placed into loving homes during the holiday season. Last year, over 4,000 animals from across Canada found their forever homes during the iAdopt for the Holidays campaign.

“It’s not typically ducks that we are trying to find homes for during our iAdopt for the Holidays campaign, but they needed our help and are now looking for a good home,” says Daryl Vaillancourt, Chief of Humane Programs & Community Outreach, Ontario SPCA. “With people having time off from work and being home together as a family, the holidays are a great time to welcome a new furry or feathered friend and help them get settled.”

If a duck is the right pet for you, please contact 1-888-668-7722 x 339 or email to request an adoption application.

Can’t adopt? Help a duck by purchasing a symbolic gift of Care for a Small Animal from, the Ontario SPCA’s online giving store.
