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


Unlike the vast majority of turkeys in the U.S., Malia did not experience the abuse and heartbreak of the meat industry. Instead, she and her “sister” Sasha lived with an elderly guardian who valued the girls as beloved companions.

Despite her good intentions, however, their guardian lacked basic information on proper turkey care. The girls, along with a single hen, lived in a small chain-link enclosure with little space to move around or explore — natural behaviors that help birds like them to thrive.

When their guardian was scheduled for surgery and could no longer care for them, she surrendered her turkey friends. Fortunately, they were able to come to Farm Sanctuary, where they now serve as powerful ambassadors for other turkeys just like them.

In her happy new home at our Southern California Shelter, Malia is free to be herself! While she’s shy around humans, she’s an assertive leader of her flock — and we’re excited to see her in her element, able to explore to her heart’s content. Thanks to support from friends like you, Malia is demonstrating 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 holiday season, 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.
