This project started with a request from Little Red Bird Sanctuary in Southern California. They rescued over 400 battery hens from an egg CAFO and were looking for a safe place for them to retire. Knowing that we had a short timeline to raise funds and build the coop, we reached out to another local non-profit, Cupid's Landing. Mae Tipple, the founder of Cupid's Landing generously donated some of Cupid's funds for us to "break ground" on our December arrival's new home.
We immediately sprung into action and organized two work parties at the farm. The Tacoma area vegan community helped us build this 4x8 foot, insulated coop in just three days!
Thanks to Cupid's Landing and all of our awesome donors and volunteers, these California Girls (and one roo!) will have a "Safe Place To Land" at Christmas time!
