Pet of the Week Dog and Cat print

Stu News Newport is delighted to be working with the Newport Beach Animal Shelter to help get the word out in search of loving homes for pets that deserve a warm, nurturing environment and a place to call “home.”

The shelter is thrilled to introduce Vanna, the Pekin Duck, who is now ready for adoption. Vanna, with her quacks and charismatic presence, is seeking a forever home where she can bring joy and companionship to her new family.

Pekin ducks, known for their adorable appearance and engaging personalities, make delightful pets for those looking to add a unique touch to their lives. Vanna is no exception. Potential adopters are advised to ensure they have the necessary resources and knowledge to meet Vanna’s specific needs. A commitment to providing a suitable living environment, proper nutrition and regular veterinary care is essential for her well-being.

If you would like to visit Vanna, please set up an appointment with the Newport Beach Animal Shelter by calling 949.718.3454, or by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
