Great News! Matching Funds for Kaporos Chicken Rescue!
Help us raise $10,000 by Tuesday, September 18
– one week from today
We are thrilled that a donor has pledged a matching donation of $10,000 to assist our rescue of Kaporos chickens next week in Brooklyn, New York. We must raise $10,000 to receive these much needed matching funds.
We have 30 sanctuaries from coast to coast set to adopt these precious birds who are otherwise marked for a horrible death by starvation, thirst, terror, abandonment and filthy bloody knives in the streets.
Costs include veterinary care, food, truck rental and transportation costs from Brooklyn to the Pacific Northwest where, all along the way, 150-plus chickens will experience peace and love, thanks to the compassionate generosity of volunteers and donors who support UPC and the Alliance to End Chickens as Kaporos.

We’re counting on everyone who cares about these baby birds to help us bring them to safety and kindness for the rest of their lives.
Kaporos, or “atonements,” is an ultra-Orthodox Jewish custom in which live chickens are swung over practitioners’ heads and then slaughtered as substitutes for the punishment meant for the practitioners themselves.
