Thanks to all who submitted photos to the 2008 Chicken Run Rescue Photo Contest
Congratulations to the winners! Their names are listed at the end of this message.
All of the entries were wonderful. They depict so clearly the love, joy and respect felt for chickens by those who know them best-those who share their lives and homes with them. All of the photos entered will
remain on the contest site.
Of the top vote getters, we chose those photos we felt best fit Chicken Run Rescue's mission to promote the emotional bonds formed by having chickens as companions and showing what life is like living with them.
We especially love the pictures of birds who have been rescued from dire straits and found a new life. There are never enough homes for displaced animals.
Winners will receive a free 2009 calendar.
Calendar price is $25. Send an e-mail message with "2009 Calendar" in the subject heading to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will contact you for payment details. There will also be ordering information on the website soon. The calendars should be ready for delivery by September. Profits go directly to helping chickens.
We have already started receiving submissions for next years contest so don't put your camera away.

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 "nature lessons" 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 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.
Chicken Run Rescue director Mary Britton Clouse is a member of United Poultry Concerns' Board of Advisors.
