South Florida’s Duck Rescue | Rehab for 42 Years


Duck Haven, Inc.

Florida's only humane rescue organization dedicated to Muscovy Ducks exclusively!

Located in Margate, Florida, we are a registered non-profit organization that has been rescuing, rehabilitating, healing, and tending to injured and abandoned Muscovies for 42 years.

A small band of volunteers donates time to rescue ducks and provides humane, loving relocation to private homes on inland South Florida waters. Duck Haven, Inc. relocates threatened and rehabilitated ducks to friendly lakes with the permission of individual homeowners and communities. We thoroughly investigate each property before we release a rehabbed Muscovy. We are a duck rescue that loves our ducks.

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. Our duck rescue receive no funding from local humane organizations and no help from wildlife agencies, who do not include Muscovy ducks as native wildlife warranting protection. Duck Haven depends solely upon your generosity to serve these animals and the community.

Our Resident Ducks

Duck Haven provides a save, loving and 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.

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.
