Foster Care: Hey there, Shrek here! I'm a large, young, unaltered Muscovy duck with beautiful brown feathers. I am a very nice bird who will eat waterfowl pellets right from your hand! After I've had my fill, it's time for me to go for a long swim and then preen. I'll round out the afternoon by basking in the sunlight and soaking up some rays. Sounds like the perfect day to me! Ducks like me require a healthy and high quality diet, access to fresh water daily, protection from harsh weather and predators, and a clean, dry environment in which to sleep or preen. Since I'm not currently at the shelter, please contact Mariela at email@example.com or 650/340-7022 x354 to meet me. Ask for Shrek, using ID# A815361.
Unless otherwise indicated, adoptable animals are located at our Lantos Center for Compassion at 1450 Rollins Road, Burlingame, CA 94010. Our hours are weekdays from 11am-7pm and weekends from 11am-6pm (closed major holidays). Interested adopters must arrive at least 1 hour before close.
We do our best to update our listings regularly, but we can’t guarantee every animal you see is still available. It’s also typical for us to have animals who haven’t had their photos taken yet, so you are welcome to visit our adoption center and have a look around!
To check on an animal's adoption status, please call 650/340-7022 during normal business hours to speak with an adoption counselor or 650/340-7022 x823 anytime to hear a recording of our available animals (updated each morning). Emails will be returned as soon as possible, but please allow up to 48 hours during busy adoption periods like weekends.
