Rooster Rescue - Happy Trails Needs Your Networking & Adoption Help
Happy Trails Farm

Dear Fellow Animal Advocate:
Over the past six weeks, Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary in Ravenna, Ohio has
assisted in three separate cockfighting raids from Cuyahoga County and Ashtabula
County, Ohio. The sanctuary is now housing nearly 150 cockfighting roosters and
related hens. We are putting forth a valiant effort to place them ALL in
approved homes over the next four weeks, to offer them a second chance at life.
Many of these roosters are friendly, love to be held, and would make great
Former fighting roosters cannot be placed together in a common area because they
will indeed fight,* so at Happy Trails they are kept in separate cages. This is
not a great life for these magnificent birds, and we are reaching out to you to
ask for your help. Please spread the word that the next four weeks are being
dedicated to finding homes for the rescued roosters. Anyone wanting more
information can call the sanctuary at 330-296-5914 or email Annette Fisher
directly at mailto:annette@...
How can you help? Please post this Alert on your Facebook page, forward it in
emails, adopt one or more of our birds, and help place them in your area. Happy
Trails will provide transportation. Thank you for helping to find these roosters
and hens compassionate, caring homes!

*UPC Note: Once their fear and trauma subside in a caring environment, many
former fighting roosters can rehabilitate to live successfully with hens and
even with other roosters. Given a chance to socialize with hens and to be part
of a normal flock of chickens, most become happy, well-adjusted birds. Patience
with them and comforting words and behavior can work wonders. For more
information, see Chicken Care:
