Freddaflower Memorial & Appreciation Fund

The pain of losing them is the price we pay for the privilege of knowing them and sharing their lives . . .

We thank those people who have contributed to our work with recent donations In Loving Memory and in Honor and Appreciation of the following beloved family members and friends, both those who have passed away and those who are with us.

  • I am honoring ZOE my Siamese mix cat for your Freddaflower Memorial Fund. Zoe has been a great source of comfort and love especially in the past two years. She was rescued by my son 16 years of age as a pretty little kitten. Zoe is a loyal and loving companion who loves to lie on me and rub her face against mine. She turned into a sweet personality. I am grateful for her love and devotion. – Anita A. Garcia

  • Dear Karen and UPC, because of your good work, because of your good heart, many have learned the beauty of a chicken. You helped me a long time ago when I had my very first rooster, Skippy. I have dearly loved every rooster I have had since then. My joy in life is holding the hens and hugging my roosters. Thank you. – Melody Ann Wall

  • Dear Karen, I don’t know if you remember, but I was a friend of Ron Scott from Garrison, New York. He’s been gone a long time now but I still think of him. I knew Ron advocated for chickens and other animals, but back then I was young and I suppose disinterested in anything that didn’t directly affect me. But now I’m older and wiser and I realize the importance of Ron’s contribution to animal welfare, and yours too. I leave my copies of Poultry Press in coffee houses or other places where they might be read by those who otherwise wouldn’t know the plight of poultry. Here is my donation in Ron’s memory. – Diane Maass

  • In memory of my childhood dwarf chicken, and Cutie, Fritzie, Boomer and Stripes. – Gundel Bhutani

I met Boris in a Poultry Press, and his story still hurts my heart, but his spirit is always with me. Always for the animals. – Dianne (and Michael) Bahr
