Open rescue XXXIII (July 2017)

My friend told me that she lives in a flat with a huge terrace and that she could give a home to a duck or a chicken as her flatmate. So we went out for one chick.

Open rescue XXXII (July 2017) & Support Fermare Green Hill

It was a clear night. We slowly waded through the wet grass to the grounds. In twenty halls there were tens of thousands of imprisoned birds.

Open rescue XXXI (April 2017) & Support Joseph Buddenberg a Nicole Kissane

During Easter we went for a couple of plucked hens. One anonymous girlfriend layed down in the grass nearby gatehouse of the poultry house and patrolled the guard. I went with Lukas to the grounds. There was several dead hens in front of one hall. Lukas stayed outside the hall and I went in. There was only silence and vacuity. All hens were taken to the slaughterhouse because of holidays. We were late by two or three days.

Open rescue XXX (November 2016) & Support Lukáš Borlík

It’ raining, we are cold and tired. We can’t contact one of the patrols. There is only a noise heard from the radio transmitter. We have lost nearly half an hour by solving this situation.

Once everything’s all right and all patrols are contacted, me and Lukáš Krása climb the fence and go to one of the halls. We go fast, but calmly.

Open rescue XXVIII (July 2016) & Support Osman Evcan

A cold night, rain and thundering far away. Totally wet sitting nearby the enclosure and waiting until the patrol comes.

It’s safe. We can go.

We know this place, so the rescue is done quickly.

We have took four chickens and going away. Four chickens whose world was changed in a few minutes.

Open rescue XXVII (May 2016) & Support Martin Ignačák

Part of our reascue team got out of the car near the location. With bags and tools they disappear into dark.

I´m driving with a friend to park the car maybe 3 km away. Later on we slowly go back to the place where the rest of us is waiting. Two people on the night walk, hand in hand like a couple - less noticable then a group of four or five.

Watchmen go to their locations. When they give us go, we jump over the fence.

Open rescue XXVI (March 2016) & Support Keith Mann

Few halls, gatehouse and old Škoda in front of it. Few halls and 180 000 pullets inside. So many crippled lives.

The night is dark and chilly. Sentry gives us a go. We follow the fence. Slowly, quietly.

Open rescue XXV. (January 2016)

One chilly night we climbed over a wall of one of many concentration camps. It consists of a slaughterhouse and several sheds with animals. Few steps, little bit of time at the door and we are in one of those sheds. Stench, dirty birds with clipped wings, living among dead and dead among living. Grief, anger and despair. We take four of them with us, the rest stays behind. Four of them are safe, they will run on grass, enjoy fresh air and no one is going to cut their throats.

We saved four of them, the rest stays behind.

Open rescue XXIV. (January 2014)

We saved 8 battery hens lives. They are not going to die in a cage, neither in a slaughterhouse. We took them away to the temporary place and afterwards we brought them to their new home.

Now they can stretch their wings and can run. Instead of artificial lighting they can see the real sun. Fresh air instead of ventilators. Weakers can get away from strongers.

Open rescue XXIII (October 2012)

12 hens were rescued from unneccessary suffering and violent killing. They were transported to a new, safe home where they will live in the grass, sun and fresh air. They will be able to spread their wings and run, and the weaker ones will have the possibility to escape the stronger ones. Send it further.

Open rescue XXI (June 2011) & support for Spanish12

I was contacted by a man whose family has sheep in captivity, and they decided that they are going to sell some of the newborn lambs for meat and to kill the other ones by themselves. He pleaded with them not to do it. To no avail. Six of them had to die, one lambs fate was uncertain.

He decided, therefore, that he will save the lambs against the wishes of his family.

He wrote to me and asked for help.

So one night we took seven lambs designated for slaughter and took them to new homes.

Open rescue XVIII. (October 2009)

Ten chickens rescued from meaningless suffering and meaningless deaths. They were moved to a new, safe home. Ahead of them is not a long and full life, because their genoms were destroyed so that their bodies grow faster and bear more flesh and so that the business is more profitable. But despite of it, this way they’ll be better off. They will learn what sun is and what fresh air is and what are people who do not see them as just meat and money. Spread the message.
