Cal-Cruz Rescue – Impounded Birds Get Second Chance at Life  


Our video evidence uncovering shocking animal abuse prompted Santa Cruz County Animal Services Authority to look further into this case.

In conducting its own follow-up investigation, this humane law enforcement agency collected additional evidence of abuse and neglect and impounded 88 ducklings in need of care.

While several of these newly-hatched birds were too sick or injured to survive, more than two dozen were given a new chance at life at a nearby sanctuary.
