Watch some of our rescued turkeys enjoy being the guests on honor at our annual feast for human and feathered friends!

Before coming to Farm Sanctuary, Bowie lived at a private home along with two other turkeys and several chickens. As he and his friends outgrew their living situation, though, their guardian realized that a change was needed in order for her bird friends to be happy and content.

It’s rare for farm animals to receive the same level of care as animals such as dogs or cats; even in cases where they’re kept as companions, people often obtain them without being fully prepared to handle their significant care needs. Fortunately, Bowie’s guardian valued these birds as friends, not food, and contacted Farm Sanctuary to help them receive the higher quality of life she knew they deserved.

Bowie and his friends made their way to our Northern California Shelter, where Bowie quickly established himself as star of the flock. Here, he has all the room he needs to explore and enjoy life!

This confident, assertive leader loves to strut proudly in front of his rooster fans and enjoys chatting with the turkeys who live next door. Sometimes, he gives his caregivers a peck on the leg to remind us that he’s the one in charge! We’re so glad that here, Bowie feels free to be himself — and that by showing off his vibrant personality, he’s helping people to see that every turkey is someone, not something.

With your support, we can make a difference for turkeys and all farm animals. By sponsoring a turkey this Thanksgiving, you help us provide the care our rescued residents need to thrive, and allow us to extend our lifesaving rescue, education, and advocacy work to help even more individuals in need. Thank you for supporting Farm Sanctuary as we create a more compassionate world for all!

Since 1986, Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey Project has encouraged people to save a turkey during the holiday season through sponsorships that help us rescue animals and provide care for them at our sanctuaries, as well as educate and advocate for turkeys and other farm animals everywhere.

For a one-time donation gift of just $35, anyone can sponsor a turkey. As a turkey sponsor, you will receive a special Adopt a Turkey certificate with a color photo of and fun details about your new friend.

Turkey sponsorships also make perfect gifts, so make an even greater impact this holiday season by sharing the love with others.

We adopt a turkey every year and this year we selected Bowie, in honor of our favorite late musician! We are pleased with the certificates we receive each time and collect them for our family. We are so happy to be able to contribute to the care and protection of these beautiful animals each season.
