"Minneapolis woman: A good egg" in Minneapolis Star Tribune

The Minneapolis Star Tribune has a wonderful article today about Mary Britton Clouse and her chicken rescue organization Chicken Run Rescue.
You may thank reporter Curt Brown via email.

Chicken Run Rescue and United Poultry Concerns work closely to educate people about chickens. Last year Mary published the winning photos of chickens, submitted as part of International Respect for Chickens Day/Month, as a beautiful calendar for 2007. The Chicken Run Rescue Calendar 2008 is now being prepared and will be announced for purchase as soon as it's published.

ABOUT CHICKEN RUN RESCUE: Every year, domestic fowl, mostly chickens, are impounded by Minneapolis Animal Control (MAC). These birds are victims of neglect, abuse and abandonment, sometimes used as a source of eggs or intended for slaughter, fighting or ritual sacrifice. Some are the discarded outcome of ³nature lessons² for children or after a hobby that no longer holds interest. After their release from MAC, Chicken Run provides the birds with temporary shelter and vet care, locates and screens adopters within 90 miles of the Twin Cities and transports the birds to their new homes. Chicken Run Rescue is the only urban chicken rescue of its kind and receives no support from any other organizations, institutions or agencies and depends entirely on donations and sales of art merchandise to continue helping chickens. There is a special need for rooster homes. Don't breed or buy- Adopt! There are never enough homes for displaced animals.
