Louise is Free from Harm’s latest hen rescue. We responded to a call from Chicago Animal Control and Care who found her on the streets of Chicago. She has a beak deformity from having been debeaked earlier in her life. She has already been successfully treated for an upper respiratory infection and biting lice. She’s active, alert and eating well, though still frail, underweight and may have a crop (digestion) issue that the vet will need to check on.
In short, Louise can’t be introduced into a larger flock at this point, and it may be a while before that can happen. In the meantime, she needs special attention, special living quarters and more specialized medical attention to get stronger, more independent and better adapted to living a normal life with flock mates in the future (our hope). We’re committed to giving her the special care she needs, but we need your help.
Please make a tax-deductible gift to Louise and help her on this journey of healing and a second chance at life! A generous donor will match, dollar for dollar, any gift you send us between now and December 31st!.
FFH is a non profit 501c3 organization that relies completely on donations to carry out its programs. Your donation will also help us help more chickens like Louise and fund our education and advocacy programs that feature them. Thank you!
