About

Rooster Redemption is an ethical vegan sanctuary, 501(c)3 Non Profit,  for male chickens in Minnesota. We are the only rooster-exclusive sanctuary in the United States.  We rescue roosters from a variety of situations including cockfighting, school hatching projects, religious rituals, slaughter, and abandonment. We create a loving, safe, and fulfilling life for these beautiful animals whose natural behaviors are often misunderstood. Each bird is given a quality of life they deserve, with vet care, a nutritious diet to increase longevity, and one-on-one attention. 

Roosters are the most exploited land animal on the planet. At just a day old, they are killed simply because they were born male and they aren’t useful to the industry due to the fact that they don’t lay eggs. 

The backyard chicken fad (using female chicken bodies for eggs) involves purchasing chicks under the assumption they’ve been sexed properly.  In 6 months when some of them start crowing, they’re immediately unwanted because they are “aggressive,” prohibited in the area, or inconvenient for the exploiters.  This results in dumped, abandoned, and homeless roosters who don’t stand a chance in the wild due to their domestication. 

Roosters rule and they deserve love, dignity, and respect. 

What the donations are used for: 

- High quality food for our residents, including fresh produce including blueberries, watermelon, cucumbers, and greens.

- Daily anti-inflammatory medication and supplements for Kincaid's arthritis.

- General upkeep of barn and outdoor runs and coops.

- Energy and gas bills to heat and cool the barn.  

Please support our efforts to provide a quality life for these deserving individuals. 

Kindly,

Melanie Moonstone, Founder and Operator
Rooster Redemption

All roosters deserve love and life.  End rooster stigma and discrimination.
