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 and transports the birds to their new homes. There is a special need for rooster homes. CRR has sucessfully placed all of over 149 birds.
