Having been in continuous operation since 1995, the "Lucky Duck Rescue & Sanctuary" is the only non-profit that provides quality care for abandoned and injured ducks, geese, and muscovies in the entire Southern California area. The rescue presently is providing sanctuary for over 110 birds. All healthy birds are free to roam our grounds during the day, and are safely penned at night. Sadly, most of the rescues were pets, whose owners had to give them up. Just dropping these birds in local parks and ponds insures there sudden demise, due to predation and starvation. The "Rescue" is basically their only hope for survival.

Carol Chrysong, the director, has loved these lovely creatures since
childhood. She is lovingly known in the Sun Valley, California, as "The Duck Lady." Despite her meager wages as an independent bookkeeper, she provides 90% of the funding necessary for continuous operation.
Operational funds for food , pen construction, vet bills, mortgage, and grounds maintenance are an on going monthly struggle to maintain.
For the past 15 years, Ms Chrysong, has sacrificed the financial security of her life for the benefit of these truly loved creatures.

She and her birds deserve our support from like minded souls.
