What has been done to help chickens
While the abuses against chickens are many and severe, a number of organizations and individuals around are working tirelessly to help chickens. They educate the public, lobby for laws on behalf of chickens, boycott companies that abuse chickens, and rescue individuals from abuse or slaughter, allowing them to live out their lives in sanctuary. It is impossible to recognize every one of them here, but find a few examples of Chicken Heroes in our Chicken Advocates section.
Other Heroes include:
—the undercover investigators who work in hatcheries, slaughterhouses, and laboratories to document and expose cruel conditions;
—the organizations and protesters who campaign to raise awareness and change practices;
—the participants in “open rescues,” non-violent, public rescues of layer hens and other animals in need of medical treatment (these rescues also serve to document conditions and to raise awareness);
—the sanctuaries, caregivers, volunteers, and adopters who provide lifelong care to the chickens they rescue, allowing them to live full and happy lives;
—and the many artists, writers, filmmakers, scientists, chefs, and everyday people who use their talents to help make the world a better place for chickens.
