This is Rosie our new emu. Rosie was one of 26 emus that a couple in Illinois had. We assume they may have been running an emu farm. Emus are raised for their meat, oil and feathers. When the couple divorced the emus went to a shelter and were then placed in new homes. We discovered a ring pierced through her back that may have been for a tag. We removed it. Her days of being someone’s property are over. Now all Rosie needs is a sponsor. Become hers today.
