Farm Sanctuary's Adopt-A-Turkey Project

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I can't think of a better way to honor the 45 million turkeys who sacrifice their lives every Thanksgiving than by participating in Farm Sanctuary's Adopt-A-Turkey Project. For a $25 adoption fee, you will receive:

* A special Adopt-A-Turkey certificate with color photo of and fun details about your new friend
* A Farm Sanctuary membership for one year
* A one-year subscription to Sanctuary, a quarterly newsletter

Learn more about the project.

I had the pleasure of visiting the Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, NY (they also have a farm in California). More about my visit in a future post. If you haven't already, read "Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds about Animals and Food," written by Gene Baur, the organization's President and Co-founder. It should be available at many local libraries, as it was at mine.

Here's two beauties from the Watkins Glen shelter.
