Happy Hens Rescued in Celebration of International Respect for Chickens Day

To view the video images of these lucky hens from farm to freedom, please click on: http://www.upc-online.org/respect/2012/nafa_hen_rescue.html 

On Sunday, May 6, volunteers with Niagara Action for Animals http://www.niagaraactionforanimals.org in St. Catharines, Ontario rescued 130 "spent" hens from a local egg farmer who advertised their availability to area residents. The hens have all been placed in loving homes and sanctuaries!

United Poultry Concerns thanks NAfA very much for linking their rescue with International Respect for Chickens Day and for holding their annual Party for the Paws (and Claws!) on May 4 with signs on their buffet table for International Respect for Chickens Day including our signature poster "What Wings are For." Normally NAfA's event is in August, but they moved it up to May 4 especially to celebrate chickens and their rescue of the precious hens.

Please make every day Respect for Chickens Day!
