Remembering Mayfly: Our Cherished Friend
The sole survivor of a school hatching project, Mayfly was rescued by Farm Sanctuary in 2002 and came to live at our New York Shelter, where he transformed from a tiny chick into an amazing rooster who filled the lives of others with nothing but wonder and joy for seven incredible years. Losing Mayfly this past winter has been extraordinarily difficult, as he was such a loving friend not only to us and everyone lucky enough to meet him, but also to his fellow chickens who adored him above all and sorely miss him. Though we are pained by his passing, we are grateful not only for all of the wonderful times we were so fortunate to have with him, but also for the trail he blazed in teaching compassion to others. We will never forget our dear friend, and his memory will always carry on in everything we do.
