Welcome to Duck Haven, Inc., Florida's only humane rescue organization dedicated to Muscovy Ducks exclusively! We are a registered non-profit organization that has been rescuing, rehabilitating, healing, and tending to injured and abandoned Muscovies for 42 years. We receive no funding from local humane organizations and no help from wildlife agencies who do not include Muscovy ducks as native wildlife warranting protection. Often the victims of cruelty, torture, and organized, legally-sanctioned condo, government, and business association poisonings, Muscovy ducks have no other government agencies to safeguard their welfare. However, they are protected by anti-cruelty laws which have been applied in the prosecution and convictions of those who have harmed them.
Prolific breeders and gregarious, Muscovy Ducks are human-friendly birds, but are often refused treatment at various "humane" organizations who tend to trendier, cuddlier wildlife. A big part of our mission is helping to educate the community about humane population control.
Duck Haven provides a permanent home to over 50 severely injured and crippled birds, including blind ducks, amputees, wingless ducks, and maimed ducks, all cared for by President and founder Eunice Sivertsen. A small band of volunteers donates time to rescue ducks from unfriendly properties and provides humane, loving relocation to private homes on inland South Florida waters.
Please take a tour of our site. Duck Haven is a registered non-profit humane organization that functions solely through your donations, all of which are tax deductible. Their survival depends solely upon your generosity. Anything you can contribute helps.
