Animal Place and PETA
Welcome Adoptive Families for Birds Saved From Egg Farm CollapseFor Immediate Release: October 12, 2012Contact: Sophia Charchuk 202-483-7382
Los Angeles -- The scene at PETA's Bob Barker Building will be feathered and festive
this Sunday, when PETA plays host to 50 hens who are looking for homes.
The birds were rescued by Animal Place and other sanctuaries from an abandoned
egg farm outside Turlock, Calif., where an estimated 50,000 chickens were left
in battery cages for two weeks without food or water. Preapproved adopters
attending the event will have the opportunity to meet the birds and hear their
stories while snacking on PETA's special vegan egg-salad sandwiches.
When: Sunday, October 14, 9:30–11:30 a.m.
Where: The Bob Barker Building, 2154 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles
"Chickens are sensitive social animals who deserve a loving home as much
as any dog or cat, not life on a miserable factory farm," says PETA
Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "Not everyone has what it takes to
care for a rescued chicken properly, but everyone can help chickens everywhere
simply by not eating them or the eggs that they are caged to
On factory farms, virtually all chickens have part of their sensitive beaks cut
off with hot blades. Egg-laying hens spend the rest of their lives crammed into
filthy wire cages, where most will never be able to extend their wings. Also,
because male chickens are useless to the egg industry, male baby chicks are
discarded at birth—often by being tossed into high-speed grinders while they
are still alive.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
