FROM Luvin Arms Animal Sanctuary

The boys were in poor condition when they arrived at the sanctuary, but now they are confident, healthy, and free to live their lives.

One year ago, Spike, Mikey, Jonny, Dante, and Charlie were rescued from the Kaporos religious rituals in Brooklyn.

During these rituals, six-week old chickens are denied food and water and are left outside in crates for days, 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 are weak and dehydrated.

The boys were in poor condition when they arrived at the sanctuary, but now they are confident, healthy, and free to live their lives.

We are so lucky to be able to have spent this past year with these sweet boys, and we look forward to making even more memories with them.
