“Turkeys are just as friendly, smart, and full of feeling as my dogs, and they deserve to be treated better” – Alec Baldwin

NEW YORK CITY (October 25, 2016) Farm Sanctuary, America’s leading farm animal protection organization with more than half a million members and supporters nationwide, announces that ALEC BALDWIN will speak out for  turkeys, who are among the most abused animals on Earth, as their 2016 Adopt a Turkey Project spokesperson.

Says Baldwin, “Like most people, I don’t like thinking about things that make me feel bad. But I also don’t like animal suffering, so I feel the need to speak out about it. At least 46 million turkeys suffer heartbreaking fear and pain before being killed each and every Thanksgiving. This year, I’m supporting Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey Project because turkeys are just as friendly, smart, and full of feeling as my dogs, and they deserve to be treated better. I hope you’ll join me by sponsoring.”

Since 1986, Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey Project has inspired compassionate conversation about our society’s relationships with turkeys and the measures we can take to improve the terrible conditions they regularly endure on commercial farms. Now celebrating its 30th year, the project has saved hundreds of lives while inspiring countless individuals to sponsor a turkey who resides at one of Farm Sanctuary’s three shelters in New York and California. For a one-time donation of $30, turkey sponsors receive a special adoption certificate with a color photo and fun details about their new friend.

Founded in 1986, Farm Sanctuary works to change how our society views and treats farm animals through rescue, education and advocacy. The organization provides lifelong care for animals rescued from abuse at sanctuary locations in New York and California; promotes compassionate vegan living; and advocates legal and policy reforms.
