Last week the sanctuary welcomed six new hens, four from a cage-free farm and two from battery cages. They are not yet quite brave enough to stray far from the hen house but they are certainly already personality plus!

Now that these hens have found sanctuary, they will receive the very best of care thanks to our volunteers and supporters while they act as ambassadors for the millions of egg-laying hens that we can’t save. If you would like to sponsor one of these hens and help us with our mission, please check out our sponsorship information. You can also check out this site on eating without eggs.
