Work Party and Tour of the Rooster Sanctuary at Danzig's Roost

  • June 21, 2014 · 1:00 PM

Join us, along with the Denver Vegan Meetup Group, for a tour of the Rooster Sanctuary at Danzig's Roost east of Denver near Bennett.

Co-owners Jewel and Jason, both vegans, combine vegan education with providing a home for over 150 rescued roosters and hens, as well as several ducks, goats, horses, and a potbellied pig.  Just recently they have taken in 100 additional hens--"spent" hens who were rescued from a "certified humane" "free-range" egg facility where they were about to be "composted" in order to be replaced with a younger, more "productive" group of victims.  Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary also took in 100.

Please consider making a donation to help with the huge additional expense of feeding, sheltering, and providing veterinary care for the new arrivals at Danzig's.  Suggested donation for the tour: $10 - $30, or more if you can.

Regarding carpooling from Boulder, please indicate if you would like a ride, or can drive.  Come spend a day in the country enjoying the open air and the  companionship of these wonderful animals and help with the never ending chores to lighten their load a bit.

    Jewel and Jason are wonderful, amazing people. It was a treat for us to meet and interact with everyone at the sanctuary. We can't thank them enough for rescuing and caring for so many beautiful individuals.

    I had to drop out unfortunately! We adopted a second pooch from Longmont Humane last weekend, and he's so very shy and traumatized - I don't want to leave him alone too long just yet. I was really looking forward to this - maybe another work tour in the near future?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
