Who We Are

WHO WE ARE –  WE ARE SWANLOVERS 

My Husband and I LOVE Swans. We have Rescued, Rehabbed and found Good Homes for many Lost, Injured, Sick or Unwanted Swans.

SWANLovers Info

We have had “Hands-On” experience working with our Local Avian Veterinarians to help Recover these Swans to the Best Health possible, before transporting them to their “Forever Ponds.”

Discarded Mute Swan

Years ago, as I was walking along our local River for exercise – camera in hand, I met my first Swan. She was alone, swimming among a flock of noisy Canadian Geese, hundreds of Mallard Ducks and countless Sea Gulls.

I often photographed her in the early morning.. as the Sun was about to rise. We learned she was a Discarded Pet.

Two years passed – her loneliness ended,
when a mature Male Mute Swan flew over the River and found her.

Feral Mute Swans

  Watching them together was Delightful..
Their Hardships were many as they were living Feral
– Wild and Free.

Swans Lonely no more

They spent two years together, before a cruel person tossed a large firecracker under this magnificent, loving Male Swan.

The explosion shredded his left wing.

I was to able arrange a “Rescue” for “Handsome Fellow.”
Everything in our lives was put on hold, as we spent as much time as needed to care for “Handsome.” Rescued Mute SwanHis entire Left wing had to be Amputated.. Rescued Mute Swan

I Want to Share this Fact about myself.. I am Dyslexic.. (Sigh)
Please, try to read my Text with that Tid-Bit of Information in Mind.
I can Proof Read and ReRead my Text 10 Times and still find “Oops,”
when I go back and Read the same Text 24 Hours later.. a Week Later.
Very Frustrating.

I WANT to Develop this Website for ALL the Swans..
so, I just DO MY Best and Ask for Your Understanding.

I Post Information to my WebSite.. and I find Errors every time
I go to Add Text and Proof-Read..
But, the Content is there.. it is worth this Effort..
My Goal is to Improve the Fate of Swans. Please Bare With ME !
