EMERGENCY RESCUE OF 250 CHICKENS!
This morning [Friday, Sept 10], the Official NYC Kaporos Team were the first responders to a terrifying scene - multiple crates of baby chickens had fallen off a transport truck making a sharp turn, and were abandoned at a dangerously busy intersection. Nearly 250 birds were injured, running loose in the streets, and trapped in direct hot sun. They were being trucked to Kaporos sites.
Our team assessed and triaged every bird, and dove under trucks in the busy road to make sure every single chicken was safe.
Thank you to Allie Feldman Taylor of Voters For Animal Rights for alerting us and acting quickly at the scene, in addition to our other skillful volunteers. We are now partnering with Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC) to place the birds in good homes and get them the care they need.
Thank you for supporting our work to help as many birds as we can:
“All the truck survivors have been triaged and transported to the
Animal Care Centers partner homes. We have 14 at the vet now!”
