The 2017 Broome County Humane Society's Duck Derby is about a week way on Sunday, July 30th from 12-4 pm at the Holiday Inn Downtown Binghamton. Don't miss out on your opportunity to adopt a duck or two...even a Mega Quack Pack.

Duck adoption begins at $5 for one duck, $25 for 6 (1 free). It goes as high as 50 ducks for $250 (20 bonus ducks).  There'll also be games, music, animals, vendors and more. First place prize is $5,000 but the real winner are the animals.

Money from every duck adopted will go to The Humane Society They are an independent non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to the prevention of animal cruelty and finding permanent, loving homes for companion animals.

They service the community by sheltering animals, finding them homes, investigating reports of animal cruelty, educating people of all ages and rescuing animals from life threatening situations.

My family has been involved for the past couple of years in the Duck Derby. We have tagged ducks, dropped the ducks into the water and helped retrieve them after the event was over. We've adopted ducks as well.

We hope that you'll help and go here to adopt your duck/ducks.
