Looking for a loving, feathery companion to quack you up this holiday season?
The Ontario SPCA (OSPCA) is searching for homes for nearly 100 ducks that are currently waiting at a foster farm to be adopted.
The OSPCA says Muscovy-type ducks need a home where they will “thrive” and owners should have previous experiences caring for birds or ducks.
What the duck?! The Ontario SPCA is looking for loving homes for close to 100 #ducks. We are 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 ducks have arrived just in time for the OSPCA’s iAdopt for the Holidays campaign, which runs until December 31 at participating SPCAs, humane societies, and rescue groups across Canada.
The goal of the iAdopt campaign is to find as many caring homes possible for foster animals in December. In 2017, nearly 4,000 animals were adopted 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,” said Daryl Vaillancourt, of the OSPCA, in a release.
“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.”
