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

Your symbolic adoption helps Farm Sanctuary care for our rescued turkeys, protect others still exploited in animal agriculture, and raise awareness about the beautiful lives they 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 quick 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 gift for a friend, and start a new, compassionate holiday tradition – grounded in compassion.
