Facts about Joshua

  • Breed: Duck
  • Color: White
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
Joshua is a Muscovy duck who we saved from a homeless person's shopping cart, to which he was tied in with a rope around his neck, as they passed by the veterinarian's office. We saved him with the help of a wonderful vet tech employee outside of the vet's office on a hot summer day. Joshua was extremely dehydrated and she brought out a large tub of cool water for him.

I have never seen a duck enjoy a bath more than Joshua did that day. He plunged his head, wriggled, splashed, flapped his wings, and drank, drank, drank, to rehydrate himself. When he was finally totally comfortable, I tucked him under my arm, and on my lap we went for the long drive home, together with also a large white Pitbull dog in the back area of the SUV, who needed to be dropped off at his boarding kennel.

We even made a stop at the ATM. People were cheering as they saw Joshua's long neck and head peering out of the car window. He made quite a splash!

About The Nature Network, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

The Nature Network, Inc., is a non profit 501c3 federal tax exempt organization, publicly supported and existing entirely with the generous help of animal loving people. We rescue dogs, cats, horses, other domestic pets, birds, and wildlife, some on their last day of life from Los Angeles area pounds, and we work with local wildlife rescue organizations to save wildlife and birds (injured or orphaned). We love animals very much, and feel there can never be enough help for all animals in need, or enough loving homes or enough birth control for the domestic ones.

We are currently seeking grants, donors and sponsors to purchase the animal sanctuary and education center we have found for the Nature Network in the Valley area of Los Angeles.

We are preparing to again produce and host a previously award winning television show about the rescue and protection of domestic and wild animals and preservation of natural habitats.

More information to come soon. Our website, is currently under re-design, and will be up and active soon.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our adoptable pets are boarded at kennels, veterinarians, foster homes and our friends' and family's homes. We sometimes also take part in Best Friends and Animal Planet adoption events. We recommend calling us to discuss your adoption needs. If it sounds like you would be happy and the pet would be happy, we can arrange for everyone to meet.
See our organization's info about our plans to purchase our dream animal sanctuary and humane education center---but not without your help.

Our Adoption Process...

After speaking by telephone, and coming to see our pet (if qualified), we will visit your home. If qualified, we bring our pet for a two week trial period with an application and contract. The adoption donation for dogs is $200-$350, and a $50-$150 adoption donation for cats and other small pets.
