Hope's Rescue (Now Playing)
In this touching scene, an investigator discovers a live hen atop the bodies of dozens of dead hens in a rusted trash bin at an egg factory farm in Ohio. Barely breathing and in dire need of veterinary care, the hen is given a second chance at life when she was removed from the facility by the investigator, treated by a veterinarian, and placed in the nurturing care Mindy Mallet - founder of Sunrise Sanctuary.
The rescued hen is given the name "Hope" and lifelong refuge at Mindy's beautiful sanctuary.
We hear that before founding her sanctuary, Mallet had focused on dog and cat rescue. She realized, however, that there were many organizations devoted to companion animals, while few were concerned with farmed animals. This realization inspired her to change the focus of her rescue work.
