$100 Donation for Whistler at Lefty's Place

Product Description

Whistler once lived in a cage egg farm, but she was found squashed into a transport crate awaiting her death at a poultry abattoir. She was one of the lucky ones and was rescued.

It was apparent not long after rescue that she had terrible problems breathing. She literally gulped for air every second of her life. Lefty's Place agreed to take her in.

Thinking she would die in the next day or two, the amazing people at Lefty's Place just wanted to give her a safe and comfortable place to die.....but she didn't die.

Whistler spent weeks in intensive care at Lefty's Place, struggling to breathe, not eating and barely drinking, but she did not die, she fought and fought with every single breath.

Whistler ended up leaving intensive care and was able to live in a flock with other special needs hens.

Whistler had been suffering from Infectious laryngotracheitis (ILT) which is a highly contagious respiratory disease with a mortality rate of 70 percent. When Lefty's Place took her

When Lefty's Place took her to the vet clinic she was quite bad and they asked the question “would it be kinder to have her put to sleep?” to which the vet replied with “she’s fought this long. Let her live” and everyone nodded. She had fought through 18 months in the cage egg farm. She had survived depopulation and arrived at the abattoir and she’d survived a terrible case ILT, she needed to have a chance to live. Whistler still lives today, but she requires constant medical care and checkups. She has a compromised immune system because of suffering so badly from ILT and she needs such special care to help her live out a life of happiness and the freedom to breathe.
