Ex-Battery Hens

The Sanctuary works closely with animal welfare groups to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home battery hens. Hens make wonderful companions as they are low-maintenance, social animals that love to spend time with you and will keep you entertained with their antics. If you live in the Auckland or Rodney areas and would like to adopt some hens, please click HERE for an adoption form.

The Sanctuary is an animal refuge run by Shawn Bishop and Michael Dixon in Matakana, New Zealand. We provide a safe haven for abused and neglected animals, and care for injured or orphaned native birds. A charitable trust has been established for this purpose.
