Tophu is named after a dear friend & supporter of the sanctuary, Shay’s nick name “Tophu Lishus.”
Tophu along with Anabel, Katie, Michele & Madison (who turned out to be a rooster) were rescued from a local feed & supply store as baby chicks, only 6 days old. They were all struggling to survive without proper attention and veterinary care.
More specifically, we headed to pickup some feed for the Animals ~ as we walked through the store we see one of the sales associates walking towards us ~ we knew what was about to happen.
We have an agreement with several feed stores that sell Chicks ~ if they have little ones that are struggling, we have agreed to provide extra love, care and forever sanctuary to the babies ❤️
So we welcomed Tophu, Anabel, Katie, Michele & Maddie into their forever home ~ each of them had pasty butt and needed some extra love.
Thank you to everyone that sent them good vibes and healing energy.
CareBear was also rescued that day, however she had a deformed leg & unfortunately passed shortly after her rescue.
Tophu & the others have only known love in sanctuary ~ thank you for helping us change their lives.
If you would like to help us continue our much needed work here at Santuario de Karuna, please consider a donation to us.
Or if you are able, sponsor Tophu with a $10 monthly donation that helps with her food, fresh fruits & veggies, treats, housing, veterinary bills and meeting all her other needs. Thank you!
“Every year, the poultry industry calls September “national chicken month” in an attempt to boost slumping sales after grilling season. We’re all for having a month for chickens–if that means we’re celebrating them and, most importantly, keeping them off our plates. Chickens are intelligent and social individuals with rich lives, and an ability to feel pain and suffer just like we do.
When raised for food or eggs, chickens endure horrors like overcrowding, filthy conditions, and painful procedures like debeaking without painkillers or anesthesia. Raised to grow at tremendous speeds, “broiler” birds (chickens raised for meat) who survive these conditions will be slaughtered at just two months old.
It isn’t just chickens raised for meat who suffer. Egg-laying hens suffer heartwrenching abuse, many kept in tiny battery cages with no space to turn around or even spread their wings. Males born into this industry are killed on their first day of life, because they cannot lay eggs.
This doesn’t have to be the reality. By shifting towards a plant-based diet, we can stop giving our money to corporations that torture animals for profit.”
