Turlock Hen Rescue
Between February 23-24, 2012, Animal Place coordinated the rescue of 4,460 hens from an egg farm.

The farmer had been starving the 50,000 hens - stuck in cages - for over two weeks.

It took two days and ample volunteer and staff time to rescue these hens.

Of the hens rescued, 4,100 went to Animal Place facilities while the rest went to other sanctuaries and shelters.
