Check out newly-adopted Dudley in his new digs with his new friends in Salida, California. It’s a BUNderful life!
Happy Valentine’s Day, love birds!
Today is the last day to support the Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary Chicken Sponsor-a-thon. Our goal is to find a sponsor for each chicken at the sanctuary by the end of today. We have a long way to go. Today, we hope we can meet our goal with your loving support!
Sponsorships make marvelous gifts for your loved ones. And you can make a meaningful impact in the life of one of our adorable birds, like Cassidy who was rescued from a manure pit at A&L Poultry a year ago this month.
Help newly-rescued Wilton the Cat on his road to recovery!
Wilton was rescued earlier this week near Tracy, after he was struck by a speeding motorist on Interstate 205 (connector between I-580 and I-5 in San Joaquin County). A rescuer with Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary found bewildered and dazed Wilton literally sitting on the line divider of the merging line on I-205, inches from cars, trucks and semi’s barreling along the roadway. It’s an absolute miracle Wilton was not pancaked by a vehicle.
Young Wilton was taken to Jules Veterinary Center in Tracy for emergency care. He sustained trauma to his head, lungs and legs. Currently, he is being closely watched at our sanctuary as he recovers from his injuries.
Support Wilton the Wonder Kitty by making a contribution to his vet care and recovery today!

A&L Poultry’s egg facility outside of Turlock now resembles a ghost-town with its hollowed, sun-bleached wooden chicken sheds. There is no sign of human or avian life at this ramshackle farm that once housed 50,000 birds.

One step forward for justice today!
Nearly a year after the case broke, the operators of the now infamous A&L Poultry were arraigned on felony animal cruelty charges this afternoon in Stanislaus County for abandoning 50,000 hens at their battery cage egg farm. Associated Press reports:
“TURLOCK, Calif. (AP) — Prosecutors say two poultry farmers accused of leaving 50,000 hens to starve are facing felony animal cruelty charges. Andy Cheung and Lien Diep were arraigned Monday on the charges in Stanislaus County Superior Court. If convicted, they could face up to three years in prison and $20,000 in fines.”
