My Mid Columbia Pet Duck

Updated on April 2, 2013

My Mid Columbia Pet Duck

I (actually, the whole family) adopted my pet duck Donald on August 8th, 2010. For a good cause I might add. Donald will take his first swim in the Columbia River to help the Tri Cities Washington Rotary Club fund the many wonderful things they do for needy Tri Cities Washington residents. You see, by adopting this "pet," there is a family in need that may benefit. Read on to discover more about Donald and how you too might adopt a duck for a worthy cause!

Where are the proceeds of this lens going to?

Although this lens is in support of our pet duck Donald, any proceeds (100%) from this lens are contributed to the ASPCA. Enjoy!

About The ASPCA
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing cruelty towards animals. Based in New York City since its inception in 1866, the organization's mission is "to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States."
