One of our goals is always try to move forward and improve, so we have considered that it would be a great step for the lives of the 40 refugees who already live here (and those who will arrive) to have a fully conditioned space to pay basic medical attention to them, thus avoiding trips to the clinic that stress them and can waste valuable time in an emergency.
We believe it is a necessary long-term investment, since unfortunately all refugees will need veterinary attention and specific care at some time in their lives.
For most of them, Animal exploitation has condemned their bodies making them vulnerable and sick.
For all this we launch this campaign and we invite you to collaborate with the project and with all the refugees, because their liberation is in our hands, and with your solidarity share you will be contributing to them having a better life.
It’s time to introduce you to two very special refugees. They have ceased to be a product to be consumed and slaves of a system of exploitation. Now they live being taken care of and respected in their refuge.
A couple of months ago a notice arrived about two hens in an animal shelter of the state. Apparently they arrived there after a seizure in a restaurant, where they possibly would have ended up being served as food…

We continue to give you updates about Ekaitz, although this week is not good: in the last veterinary review we discovered that one of the possible chronic problems that Ekaitz could suffer from is peritonitis, a disease unfortunately very common in hens that come from exploitation. It manifests as an internal insertion of the egg, which descends into the abdominal cavity and causes fluid to be released in the abdomen, affecting other organs. The symptoms may also be indicative of a tumor in the ovary. Both are serious illnesses that could have caused death if they had not been detected in time.
After performing an X-ray and sonography, the veterinarian recommended stabilizing her with antibiotics, and after 15 days suggested to do an endoscopy to confirm the diagnosis and see what the next step is to help her feel better. At all times we were with her and pampering her, as she calms down with our presence. Now she is at home receiving the necessary treatment and care while waiting to be tested.
We will do everything possible so that Ekaitz can enjoy the life she deserves!
