Help Us Save The Fighters!

A recent cock fighting bust has seized over 60 roosters. Danzig's Roost has the opportunity to save as many of these birds that we can.

We had originally planned to save 30 while knowing the rest that are left behind would be killed. With enough funding and volunteer assistance, we may be able to save them all. We were given a generous donation toward the rescue of these fighters with the encouragement to save all that we can. This will cover the costs of two large buildings to house the roosters from the elements, but we still need materials to build runs and enclosures to keep the roosters safe during the rehabilitation process.

Rehabilitation can take many months and possibly a year. Some may never be okay with integration and we will forever provide safety and enrichment for each individual in those cases. If we can get enough support together we will be able to safely house the fighters, begin rehabilitation and begin to find potential, approved adopters. If we cannot gather enough support, many roosters will die.

Please help us save as many of these brave birds as we can and leave no one behind.

Danzig's Roost is a 501(c)3 non profit organization run by volunteers. All donations are tax deductible.
