Volunteers with PetHelpers.ie have been advertising on BuyandSell.ie this week in the hope to save 2,400 hens from uncertain futures…
Spurred on by the recent introduction of new EU legislation around Battery Farming, PetHelpers.ie are working hard to save Ex-battery hens from an uncertain future. As a result of these efforts by the animal welfare group, 2,400 ex-battery hens are now up for adoption.
The current 2,400 hens up for adoption are from a farm in the midlands near Tina’s home (the owner of PetHelpers.ie) where they can no longer be kept due to the new legislation. These ex-battery hens are now being offered to the general public as laying pets to be loved and cared for. Are you in a position to adopt one?
Tina is having the hens delivered this morning (23rd July 2012) where they will be held in barns and stables until homes have been found for all of the hens. A local business man that owns a car company is also lending a hand by offering up a stable to keep some of the hens until they have found new homes!
If you have been thinking of getting hens, now is a great time;
“These girls make great pets and will lay for years to come. They are very easy to look after. They’re great to have around. They’ll eat all your scraps, and are so easy to take care of!”
Anyone interested in caring for and keeping one or more of these hens can adopt today. All that is asked is a small donation of €5 per hen. This covers the costs of buying the hens from the farmers, transport costs, feed and any necessary veterinary fees required.
By the end of this week, PetHelpers.ie are hoping to raise the total number of hens they’ve rescued to 4,000 altogether this year.
We’d like to say a huge well done to the group for their efforts!
