Have You Heard Of The Adopt-A-Turkey Project?


Since 1986, the Adopt-A-Turkey Project has led to the rescue of more than one thousand turkeys and shifted public attitudes toward this Native American bird by offering thousands of people the opportunity to “adopt” a turkey who lives at one of Farm Sanctuary’s two shelters in New York and California for a one-time $25 donation. Turkey sponsors receive a special Adopt-A-Turkey certificate with a color photo of and fun details about their new friend. Every November a new set of “spokesturkeys” are unveiled and their peppy personalities and enthusiastic pleas for adoption have made even the staunchest meat-eaters reconsider what they eat on Thanksgiving and throughout the year. This year, six special rescued birds named Bubbles, Mello, Rhonda, Gideon, Olive and Hawthorn will vie for the hearts of potential adopters.

And for fun, here are some outtakes from Ginnifer Goodwin’s PSA.
