Adopt A Turkey And Make This Thanksgiving A Compassionate One!

November will be here before we know it marking the beginning of the holiday season, so WAN encourages people to start thinking about adopting…A Turkey!

Horrifically, more than 46 million turkeys are eaten each year during Thanksgiving. That is nothing to be thankful for!

But this is!

For just $35.00, anyone from anywhere can sponsor a turkey who lives at a Farm Sanctuary shelter located in Watkins Glen, NY, Los Angeles, CA or Orland, CA.

Even better, as the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization states on its website, “you can sponsor the whole flock and have adoption certificates sent to family and friends for $210.00!”

Each Farm Sanctuary Adopt a Turkey sponsorship arrives with a special Adopt a Turkey certificate with a color photo of and fun details about your new friend; a one-year subscription to Sanctuary, Farm Sanctuary’s biannual print magazine; and, most importantly, Farm Sanctuary’s deepest appreciation for contributing funds for the care of the rescued animals at the sanctuaries, and its ongoing efforts to educate and advocate for turkeys and other farm animals.

For those who are not convinced yet and for those who are but still want an extra reason to smile, take a look at these beautiful adoptable souls.Bowie is a confident, assertive leader who loves to strut proudly in front of his rooster fans and enjoys chatting with the turkeys who live next door.

Madeline loves nothing more than to sit on laps and enjoy all the attention bestowed on her. She came to Farm Sanctuary by way of a good Samaritan; her breed and the fact that she has been debeaked indicate that she started life on a factory farm. 
Malia used to live in a small chain-link enclosure with little space to move around or explore, but in her happy new home at our Southern California Shelter, she is now free to be herself!

Marnie is assertive and sassy, always letting the other turkeys and her caregivers know just who’s in charge! She was part of a small backyard operation and suffered from improper care before her rescue.

Miguel and his friends came to our New York Shelter after their former guardian passed away. Now, this special turkey has a safe home for life and will always enjoy all the love and care that he deserves!

George is an affectionate girl who is especially fond of snuggling with shelter staffers and visitors, often following us around and jumping in our laps to receive belly rubs! She and her flock mates were surrendered by their former owner and welcomed to our Northern California Shelter.

Farm Sanctuary, which is committed to ending cruelty to farm animals and promoting compassionate vegan living through rescue, education, and advocacy efforts, launched its annual Adopt a Turkey Project in 1986.

Since the inception of this much-needed program, more than 1,000 turkeys have been rescued from a brutal death while also giving thousands of people an opportunity to honor the spirit of the holiday by helping animals in need.

Here’s to another 1,000!

Please join Farm Sanctuary and WAN in making this Thanksgiving a compassionate one for ALL and sponsor a Turkey HERE!
