A Clucking Success
We are passionate about homing surrendered animals and rehoming them into loving family environments.
Last week we had a clucking victory, as it was rescue time! ‘Til The Cows Come Home (TTCCH) successfully rehomed over 300 surrendered ex-egg industry hens from both the Reserve Creek Organics and Kyogle free range hen farm, taking them to the ‘Til The Cows Come Home HQ in Mullumbimby, their temporary residence until they were all adopted by members of the community, following their worming and lice/mite procedures and treatment for any other medical concerns.
What we are doing has a positive effect for the community. Firstly, we have rescued these hens from an early demise, as hens raised on egg farms are culled aged just 18 months to 3 years. TTCCH has an agreement with local egg farms to assume ownership of the hens when they reach this age, to save them from this fate. This has a myriad of positive benefits; for the farmers who get to see the hens saved (cull day is the worst day for any farmer), for us, and for the people adopting the hens. Our work is far from over..
Get Involved In This Great Cause
TTCCH would love to get in touch with people who believe in the importance of this cause, and want to do everything they can to help us take great strides towards rescuing farmed animals. While we have successfully found a home for these 300 hens, it is important to recognise that there are many more who also need rescuing, and we need to do everything we can to help them. If you can provide a safe, happy home environment for surrendered farm animals, or know anyone who can, get in touch with us! We have 40 cows coming in next week!
