Adopting A Friend


Who We Are


Founded 2001. Every year, domestic fowl, mostly chickens, are impounded by Minneapolis Animal Care & Control and other Metro Area locations. These birds are victims of neglect, abuse and abandonment, used for eggs, slaughter, fighting, ritual sacrifice, “nature lessons” or discarded after a hobby no longer holds interest. Nothing "sustainable" about that.


After their release from impound, Chicken Run provides the birds with love, shelter and vet care, locates and screens adopters within 90 miles of the Twin Cities and transports the birds to their new homes. Chicken Run Rescue is the only urban chicken rescue of its kind and depends entirely on donations to continue helping chickens. There is a special need for rooster homes. Don't breed or buy- Adopt! There are never enough homes for displaced animals.


Chicken Run Rescue is a non-profit corporation, federally tax exempt under IRS code 501(c)3. All donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.
