Hens need wheels!


Homes4Hens Rescue CIC is an organisation commited to rescuing and rehoming ex-caged hens otherwise destined for slaughter. We have been operating since 2010 and have so far saved the lives of over 20,000 hens!
We have managed to get by using our own family vehicle or on some occasions borrowed a vehicle from volunteers to rescue the hens from farms and distribute them to seven collection points located across Scotland and Northern England. In order for our project to continue we are in desperate need of a designated vehicle, suited to the purpose and for the sole use of the organisation. This vehicle would be fitted with a ventilation system and crates allowing us to transport more hens safely and in comfort.
With a huge amount of miles covered on a regular basis, often with a trailer in tow, we are looking to buy a new van rather than a second hand one which would be less reliable and cost more to maintain. The total cost of the vehicle is around £20,000.
We are really pleased to have secured a grant from 'Support Adoption for Pets' for half of the money and we have managed to save £2000 from charitable donations.
Therefor, we are counting on the kindness of people, people like yourself. Please help us to raise the final £8000. I know it's a huge ask but we believe the work we do is worthwhile, we save these beautiful creatures from slaughter and we brighten peoples lives. We pledge to continue this work with passion and dedication and to save many more hens in future.
Please help us to help them.
