Help all animals by adopting a plant-based diet.
Help individual chickens by adopting them as companions.
Chicken Run Rescue fosters an evolution in critical thought about who is food and who is friend through rescue, rehabilitation, adoption and education.
ATTENTION THOSE WHO LOVE CHICKENS AND CRR:
Effective 4/20/15: To protect our rescues from accidental exposure to the HPAI epidemic, Chicken Run Rescue's rescue, adoption, educational visits and volunteer activities have been suspended until an all-clear is issued by USDA/APHIS. Only CRR core shelter staff and veterinary providers will have contact with our rescues.
You can stay in touch with the birds and CRR on our FaceBook page
OUR RESCUES NEED HOMES, NOT JOBS!
Every year, domestic fowl, mostly chickens, are impounded by Minneapolis Animal Care & Control and 5 Metro Area humane societies. These birds are victims of neglect, abuse and abandonment, used for eggs, slaughter, fighting, ritual sacrifice, “nature lessons” or discarded after a hobby no longer holds interest.
After their release from impound, Chicken Run provides the birds with love, 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 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 is a non-profit corporation, federally tax exempt under IRS code 501(c)3. All donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.
