Maggie the Rescued Duck: Small but Mighty

Maggie, one of Luvin Arms’ newest animal residents, is the Resident of the Month for January. Please read her story here, and consider gifting Maggie with sponsorship this month. And check out her video HERE!


In her previous life, Maggie was bullied by her fellow duck friends. As with some circles of friends, Maggie was the one on the outside. When she came to live at Luvin Arms, she got a fresh start with new friends, including her best friend, Luna the duck. The two live happily together, swimming in their baby pool from sun up to sun down. 


Madeline, one of her caregivers, describes Maggie’s love of water here: “Every morning when we open, we have to bring buckets of water to fill Maggie and Luna’s pool. But we can never be fast enough for little Maggie! As soon as we open their door, she goes right to the empty pool and sometimes even goes in it with no water, telling us to be faster.”

DID YOU KNOW: Ducks have regional accents based on where they live. Like all animals, ducks quickly adapt to their surroundings, even picking up sounds from the humans living in the area.


Anyone who has visited the Sanctuary recently knows Maggie’s distinctive call. Some say it sounds like a witch’s cackle. Or even the quack of Batman’s arch nemesis, the Penguin. New visitors follow the big sound Maggie makes and are quite surprised to find the diminutive duck who is quacking.


Another caregiver, Kara, describes Maggie’s personality as spicy. “Whenever we walk by, she sounds like she’s laughing at us! It always makes me laugh. She also likes to charge us when we are walking away. She acts super tough, but as soon as you try to grab her or turn around towards her, she runs away.” 

Recently, Maggie and her BFF moved to a new home at the Sanctuary. 

All individuals need enrichment to maintain their overall well being. 

To prevent cabin fever this winter, we would like to create a mentally stimulating living space in Maggie’s new home, including potted plants, hay balls, sand piles, perches, climbing structures, swings, and perhaps even a water feature.


With cold winter days upon us, please consider sponsoring Maggie this month and help us create a stimulating new home outfitted just for Maggie and her friend, Luna.
