Run for the Chickens!
Date: Saturday, October 13th, 2018
Location: Animal Place 17314 McCourtney Road, Grass Valley, CA
Registration Fee: $35
Time: 10:00 am – 3:00 pm (includes time to visit the animals)
Runners, walkers, chicken lovers unite and join Animal Place for a 5K fun run where you can sprint, jog, or stroll past the cows, pigs, sheep, chickens, rabbits, and goats! Dress up as your favorite barnyard pal (chickens, obvs)…you might get a medal for that. Profits from this event go directly toward liberating hens from battery cages and the purchase of a new property for our rescue and adoption program…so make sure you sign up for a fund-racing page and encourage your friends, family, and everyone you know to donate.
You could win cool prizes too!

What a great fun…d…raising idea!
Yes, I was wondering the same thing, you have all the information except where it’s located!
Hi same question as Karen, where is the beginning and end of the run? Please let us know. Thank you 🙂
WHERE IS THIS?!?
I’m looking for a chicken rescue. There are approx. 40-50 Hens, Babies & roosters. The birds are in Riverside county CA. Any suggestions
Please fill out our placement assistance form, and our adoption manager Kelcie will get back to you! http://animalplace.org/rescue-ranch-placement-assistance/
It’s too far for me to drive up there do you have a virtual run package?
I LOVE the idea of this fun run! I’m hoping that you will have it again next year on a day that doesn’t conflict with another local run – the NEO Empire Mine Run is on the same day in Grass Valley… 🙁 It supports a wonderful local teen program. I wish I could run at your place but I’m already signed up for the other run. There are a lot of local runners/walkers who would support this event if it didn’t conflict with other runs. I will send a donation and hope I can join you next year!
Oh no, we didn’t know there was another run on the same day, locally. We certainly did not intend to compete! We will definitely have it next year!
Thank you for your support of us and NEO, which looks like they are doing great work for youth!
I made the best monthly donation that I can and hoped to see rescued chickens. None so far, just requests for money for land development and now a request for Another donation.
Hi Elizabeth! First, we’d like to say thank you for becoming a monthly donor, we truly appreciate it. The reason we are requesting money for land development, is in order to get our Rescue Ranch program back up and running! Rescue Ranch is our rescue and adoption program that has allowed us to rescue thousands of hens in the past. Before we can rescue chickens at such a large scale again, we need to make sure the land is ready to go. We are working hard to get Rescue Ranch running again.
