Buttercup the Duck Finds a Home
If you visited the shelter in the past two weeks, you might have met a sweet Pekin duck who was living in the office. We called him Wesley--but "he" turns out to be a girl! And at her new home, her name is Buttercup.
Buttercup was purchased at a county fair and passed around to several different homes--that's a lot for any duck, let alone a young one like Buttercup, who is only 2 to 3 months old. While Buttercup enjoyed the social life in the shelter office, and her trips to a nearby back yard for a little swimming in a baby pool, we know she's very happy at her new home with her new duck friends.
We hear she's fitting in swimmingly [sorry, couldn't resist]. This is the same wonderful duck rescue home that took Rosie, the last Red Door duck who was saved. Thanks to Heather of the Illinois Duck Rescue for helping Buttercup out.
