Merin was rescued after falling off a truck that was taking her to slaughter in November, 2017.

Merin was sick with a respiratory infection (which is very common for chickens raised for meat and eggs in overcrowded factory farms) and she could only take a few steps.

She had probably never walked more than a few steps in her entire life before, and she took her first harrowing steps only after two days in the caring home of a volunteer, where she was allowed to sleep on the bed while she gained her confidence and her new skills of opening her wings and walking. Merin has been a cuddlebug from the first day.

At first, Merin didn’t know how to walk, and stood on her own toes when she tried.

With medical care and lots of love, Merin slowly recovered and beat the respiratory infection (and gained the strength to walk and run!)

Today she is flourishing and is enjoying her forever home in the jungly corner of the Animal Aid sanctury where she shares her life with sheep, goats and other rescued chickens (stay tuned for the story of our new rescued chickens in the next Newsletter.) Merin will be given lifelong love and care. We’re not sure if she will live a long life because she was bred for the meat industry where such chickens typically grow abnormally fast and too big for their hearts. But we’re hoping Merin will beat the odds with her amazing intelligence, humor, self-assuredness and amazing sweetness and we’re determined to make her every day an adventure of love.

After making your $75 sponsorship donation, you will receive a personalized Certificate of Sponsorship with a beautiful photo of Merin that you (or the person you’re gifting it to) can print, frame and display in your home or workplace. We’ll also send you a letter including information about your Sponsored friend.

If you are making this sponsorship as a gift for someone, please write their name in the ‘Order Notes’ box on the Check-out page so that we can name him or her on the Certificate of Sponsorship.
