Story

Carmella was one of the early rescues from the COVID pandemic. Many people were purchasing “pets” without doing research or thinking it through and later releasing the animals or abandoning them.

Carmella has transformed in the time she has been at the sanctuary from being imprinted on people and always seeking our attention to being independent and bossy in the duck flock.
