Hope For Paws received a call from a kid named Joshua Johnson about a wounded duck, and it took the rescuers over an hour to get there. Joshua was nice enough to wait with the duck the entire time. When they finally arrived, they saw a makeshift splint on the duck’s leg.
It was clear someone had tried to help, but the rescuers didn’t know enough about the situation to remove it themselves. So they opted to take the duck to a place that could properly checkout and diagnose the injury.
Hope For Paws contacted their friends at Ventura Hummingbird Rescue who also specialize in rescuing and rehabilitating other wild birds. The bird rescue assured them Daphne would be okay, and they removed the makeshift splint to put a proper one in place.
Recovering is taking a little longer than expected, but Daphne is in great hands, and she’s expected to make a full recovery soon. 🙂
Thanks to all of your donations, Hope For Paws is now able to save many more different types of animals. Amazing!
