• SPCA Looking for Homes for Rescued Hens

    The SPCA for Monterey County will open our doors to 50 adoptable hens rescued from a commercial egg farm. The hens will be delivered by rescuers from Animal Place Rescue Ranch later this morning, Fri., Jan. 17.

    The 2 year old white leghorn hens are healthy, vaccinated and sociable. They are homebodies, making them perfect companions. They can be very friendly with gentle handling and treats (they love cantaloupe, watermelon, and other fruit). The hens are very sweet, curious, and love to spread their wings.

    The hens will be adopted for $5 to homes that will care for the chickens as pets. Due to conditions in the commercial egg farm, the hens beaks are usually clipped and they will likely need special accommodation by feeding them in bowls at least 2” deep.

    The hens are scheduled to arrive late in the morning on Friday, January 17. They will be available for adoption on Saturday, January 18 after 10:00 am. For more information on adopting the hens call The SPCA Adoption Center at 831-373-2631 or 831-422-4721.

    The SPCA for Monterey County is your nonprofit, independent, donor-supported humane society that has been serving the animals and people of Monterey County since 1905. The SPCA is not a chapter of any other agency and does not have a parent organization. They shelter homeless, neglected and abused pets and livestock, and provide humane education and countless other services to the community. They are the local agency you call to investigate animal cruelty, rescue and rehabilitate injured wildlife, and aid domestic animals in distress. Online at www.SPCAmc.org.
