Rutland County Humane Society has announced it’s 16th annual Duck Derby to raise needed funds for the homeless animals in Rutland County. On Thursday, September 22nd at 5:30 pm, adopted plastic ducks will be launched into the stream at the Pittsford Recreation Area. The first 4 ducks to reach the finish line win cash prizes. A cash prize will also be awarded to the last duck to reach the finish line. Ducks are available for adoption online at Rchsvt.org, or you can adopt ducks at the RCHS shelter in Pittsford. You can adopt a single duck for $3, a Quack-Pack (4 ducks) for $10 or a 6-Quack (6 ducks) for $15. Ducks can be adopted at the event, as well. You do not need to be present to win, but if you want to, come on down and cheer on your ducks. The ducks are in training and are hoping to beat last year’s record of 3,000 ducks!
