In September of 2013, a citizen witnessed two domestic ducks being abandoned at a local pond. The two ducks were disoriented and scared therefore they attempted to follow the van that unjustly dropped them off. After watching the ducks attempt to find their owners in the street the citizen contacted Animal Control for assistance. Upon rescue, we were contacted by our friend at the Goleta Animal Shelter and she informed us that a Pekin Duck and an Indian Runner Duck were in need of a home. We named the Pekin "Bentley" and the Indian Runner "Tesla".
While at the Goleta Animal Shelter, waiting for our new ducks, Kate saw a sweet face in a small cage across the hall... That sweet face left with Kate and the ducks as well! Her name is "Penelope".
