       Home  >>  Animal Rescue Stories  >  Pierre, the duck
Pierre was rescued as a baby and came to the sanctuary because he was slated to be killed. He couldn't stand or walk because he had some sort of neurological damage: he would flip over, and his head was twisted unnaturally to one side.
 
Terri constructed a special support device similar to a baby's Johnny Jump-Up for Pierre that allowed him to stand upright, be fed upright, and start moving his legs so that his muscles could start developing. After four months of continuous therapy and muscle stimulation, Pierre was able to remain upright on his own and started walking.
 
He is now completely recovered and even has attracted the attention of a lovely female duck. This is truly a miraculous recovery.
 
Sponsoring Pierre will allow him to live out his life at the sanctuary in comfort and happiness.  Please consider sponsoring one of our wonderful animals at the Sanctuary; click here for more information.
