Who We Are


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’ve had “Hands-On” Experience Working with our Local Avian Veterinarians
to Help Recover these Swans to the Best Health possible,
before Arranging and Transporting them to their “Forever Ponds.”

Due to our Getting to Know Lots of Swan Folks,
the Last Several Years I have been Helping Connect Folks
with Summer Cygnets to People Interested in having Swans.

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 Canada Geese,
Hundreds of Mallard Ducks and Countless Sea Gulls.

Discarded Mute Swan

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.Nesting Mute Swans

They spent Two Years Together, before a Cruel Person Tossed a Large Firecracker
Under this Magnificent, Loving Mute Swan Cob.

I Could NOT Watch this Amazing Swan that had become our Friend
Suffer and Die without Doing SOMETHING !
I had NO Idea what I was Doing or What would Happen if I was Successful. 

Injured Swan Rescue

WITH LOTs of Help, I was able to Arrange a “Rescue” for “Handsome Fellow.”

His Entire Left Wing had to be Amputated..
Everything in our Life was Put on Hold,
as we Spent as much Time as Needed to Care for “Handsome.”Rescued Mute Swan

He Required Nine Months of Daily Care before he had Recovered Enough to be on a Pond.

We are Grateful to All the Swan Folks who have Welcomed our Swans

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 Here.. it is Worth this Effort..
My Goal is to Improve the Fate of Swans. Please Bare With ME !

The Rescued Swans we Love will be 15 Years Old in 2024.
