Triangle Chicken Advocates – Chapel Hill, NC

November 24, 2014

Triangle Chicken Advocates is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that rescues and provides sanctuary to chickens (roosters and hens) and other farmed animals, while also educating the public about chickens and promoting veganism.

We focus our rescue work on animals from shelters, animal control services, and other sources (including owner surrenders on a case-by-case basis) in the Triangle area of North Carolina, in the counties of Orange, Durham, and Wake, along with Alamance, Caswell, Chatham, Franklin, Granville, Harnett, Johnston, Nash, and Person, and all cities therein. TCA then provides rescued animals with ongoing care and shelter at our sanctuary or secures them permanent placement in other vegan sanctuaries and homes.

TCA endeavors to help refugees from the animal farming system stay out of that system and avoid being killed by animal control for lack of a place to go. Triangle Chicken Advocates does not and will never purchase an animal from a for-profit livestock auction or pay a farmer to surrender their animal.

TCA’s founders, Justin and Rosemary Van Kleeck, started The Microsanctuary Movement based on their work with TCA.


Resident Sponsorships & Recurring Monthly Donations

Want to take your support of farmed animals and the residents at Triangle Chicken Advocates to the next level? Become a Monthly Sponsor to help us provide for their ongoing food, medical costs, and enrichment. By donating monthly to sponsor a particular resident, you can feel good knowing that you have made it possible for TCA not only to care for him or her, but also to have additional resources to support other residents and new rescues.

Our resident sponsorship program does not have set minimum amounts–we appreciate and benefit from a regular monthly sponsorship donation of ANY amount! However, based upon our experience with feeding and providing medical care to our residents, we offer the following suggested donation amounts for monthly sponsorships:

  • Chickens: $25/month
  • Other birds: $15/month
  • Pigs: $10/month

Every resident at TCA is respected as an individual regardless of species, and we believe that providing recommendations for sponsorship donations should reflect the realities of caregiving for them, not how they are prioritized by society.

When you make this life-giving gift, you will receive an electronic sponsorship package with a color photo of your sponsored resident and a personal profile of them, as well as a sponsorship badge!
