RESCUED: Nine baby roosters
Please help them
Nine young roosters just came home to Luvin Arms from the Kaporos rituals in Brooklyn. They've had a rough beginning and we're giving them the critical care they need, but we need your help to care for Reggie, Logan, Spike, Mikey, Jonny, Miguel, Pickle, Charlie, and Dante.
Every year, 60,000 young birds are shipped in stacked, crowded crates to the streets of Brooklyn. For days, six-week old chickens are denied food and water and are left outside in these crates, exposed to extreme heat, cold, wind, and rain.
As if this weren't bad enough, they then are grabbed from their crates and slaughtered in the streets. Those who survive have smashed toes, open sores, broken bones, and were weak and dehydrated.
It's a traumatic, horrific experience that no being, furry or feathered, should ever have to go through. But those who are rescued get a second chance.
While it's difficult to find homes for any farmed animal, it's especially difficult to find homes for roosters because there can only be one per flock. That is, unless it's a flock of all roosters. In efforts to alleviate the burden on those looking for homes for the survivors, we decided to take in all roosters, and as many roosters as we could.
Now that they're finally safe, we're doing health checks on our roosters, giving fluids, working with them to regain their strength, and giving them each individualized attention and care. They're already coming out of their shells and they realize that we're here to help them, not hurt them.
Caring for these sweet birds takes up a lot of time and resources, but like all animals, they deserve a lifetime of health, happiness, love, and friendship, and we will never compromise that. But we can't do it alone. We need your help.
Please help this new rooster flock by making a donation today.
These boys wouldn't stand a chance if it weren't for you. They've already been through so much trauma and darkness in their short lives, but it's because of friends like you that we can give them sanctuary. Thank you for being there when the animals need you most.
