The 3rd Annual Desert Duck Derby

May 23, 2023


If you adopted a rubber duck this year at our 3rd Annual Desert Duck Derby, you made this event a success! And if you were kind enough to share our fundraising link with your friends and family on Facebook, you also had a hand in making this event a success! We are incredibly grateful to our community of supporters and their commitment to supporting Arizona families and their pets when they need it most.

Thanks to our incredible supporters, The Arizona Pet Project community adopted 5,988 rubber ducks! Because of these rubber duck adoptions, you raised critical funds to support even MORE families this year! Way to go!!

During our event at Heidi’s Village, our honorary duck pluckers, adoptable dogs from Lost Our Home Pet Rescue and Heidi’s Village, chose the winners of our prizes this year out of a pile of 10,000 rubber ducks.

Congratulations to the following winners of this year’s prizes:

Jim Lord

Julie Hammill
