Charlie’s Story:

Every year, 60,000 young birds are shipped in stacked, crowded crates onto the streets of Brooklyn for a religious ritual called Kaporos. For days, six-week old chickens are denied food and water and are left outside in these crates, exposed to extreme heat, cold, wind, and rain. As if this weren’t bad enough, they then are grabbed from their crates and slaughtered in the streets. Those who survive have smashed toes, open sores, broken bones, and were weak and dehydrated. Charlie is one of the chickens who survived and was rescued. Charlie was a rambunctious boy. He loved running and being active. We are grateful he spent the rest of his life safe and loved. He will be missed.
