Watch some of our rescued turkeys enjoy being the guests on honor at our annual feast for human and feathered friends!
Meet George — an incredible turkey who’s changing hearts and minds about our relationships with birds like her! (And yes, you read that right — George is a girl.)
George spent her early days in a private home, where she lived with two other turkeys and several chickens. But this home soon proved to be an improper fit, so their guardian contacted Farm Sanctuary to see if we could help give George and her friends the quality of life they deserved.
We gladly welcomed the flock to our Northern California Shelter. At first, George felt hesitant around other turkeys, instead preferring the company of her chicken friends. In time, though, she found a BTFF (Best Turkey Friend Forever) in pal Alexandra, with whom she now lives happily in our turkey barn.
These days, George loves nothing more than hanging out with her new friends — turkey, chicken, and human alike! This affectionate girl is especially fond of snuggling with shelter staffers and visitors, often following us around and jumping in our laps to receive a much-appreciated belly rub. We are so thankful that at Farm Sanctuary, George is free to be herself!
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!
