Between February 23-24, 2012, Animal Place and Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary coordinated the largest farm animal rescue in California history. More than 4,400 hens were pulled from A&L Poultry in Turlock, California after the owner left the hens without food for more than two weeks. A total of 50,000 were housed here. The others were either found dead or beyond rescue.
More than 3,200 of those hens arrived to Animal Place’s two sanctuaries in Grass Valley and Vacaville. This video chronicles the truly astounding rescue effort. Please watch and share widely.
If you would like to help these hens, visit animalplace.org or simply eliminate eggs from your diet.
