A Poultry Place is a no kill sanctuary which offers a safe, permanent home to rescued and unwanted domesticated poultry (roosters, chickens, ducks, turkeys and geese). The sanctuary focuses on poultry because they are the most exploited group of animals in today’s society, with almost 50 billion being slaughtered each year, most having been farmed in cramped windowless sheds and battery cages. Some of the residents are products of school hatching projects, which only serve to teach kids to view animals as disposable products; or have been dumped in public parks or roadsides. While the sanctuary’s primary focus is on domesticated poultry there is also a resident sheep flock, a resident pride of cats and two resident goats. All residents have a carefree existence – they are not exploited for food or clothing and are free to roam during the day. Since 2001 A Poultry Place has assisted more than 2600 beings by offering them temporary or permanent shelter.
