Chicken Heaven On Earth Rescue Sanctuary Needs Your Help
We are currently in need of feed, supplies, medical care for rescued chickens, dogs, cats, and other animals at our sanctuary and an expansion so we can purchase a larger farm. Any amount would be greatly appreciated. We don't keep them in tiny cages like most traditional animal shelters do. All of the birds and animals at Chicken Heaven On Earth are free range on almost 2 acres after they are vetted (dewormed, neutered, spayed, or caponized and parasite free) in a farm environment. Payments can be made securely via Paypal.
