At Farm Sanctuary, we inspire people to think about turkeys differently. Since 1986, our Adopt a Turkey Project has inspired people to sponsor the care of a turkey each Thanksgiving instead of eating one.

Your symbolic adoption empowers Farm Sanctuary to care for our rescued turkeys and protect others still being exploited in animal agriculture, helping raise awareness about the beautiful lives turkeys lead when they’re allowed to live.

In gratitude for your support, we’ll send you a personalized adoption certificate with your adopted turkey’s photo, rescue story, and facts about their background and personality. You can opt for a digital certificate or a mailed print certificate — perfect for displaying on your holiday table.

Adopt for yourself or as a gift for a friend, and start a new, compassionate holiday tradition — rooted in compassion.
