This season, be a part of a new Thanksgiving tradition — adopt a turkey!

Since 1986, Farm Sanctuary’s annual Adopt a Turkey Project has led to the rescue of more than one thousand turkeys from a brutal death and given thousands of people an opportunity to honor the spirit of the holiday by helping animals in need.

Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey Project offers two ways for you to welcome turkeys into your home this Thanksgiving:

1. Sponsor — “adopt” a turkey who lives at our Watkins Glen, New York, Los Angeles, California, or Orland, California, shelters for farm animals. For a one-time $30 adoption fee, you will receive:

  • A special Adopt a Turkey certificate with color photo of and fun details about your new friend
  • A one-year subscription to Sanctuary, our biannual newsletter

As a turkey sponsor, you will not only contribute funds for the care of the rescued animals at our sanctuaries but also help us educate and advocate for turkeys and other farm animals everywhere. Adopt a Turkey online or by phone at 1-888-SPONSOR.

2. Home-adopt and provide a safe, permanent, and loving home for two or more turkeys. Home adopters must be vegetarian and committed to providing lifelong care for their turkey friends. Those interested in home adoption must complete an adoption application. Turkey companions are personally delivered to approved adopters by Farm Sanctuary staff via the Turkey Express.

Please join us in making this Thanksgiving a compassionate one for ALL.
