At Farm Sanctuary, we inspire people to think about turkeys differently! Our Adopt a Turkey Project encourages people to sponsor one of our rescued “spokesturkeys” for the holiday season instead of eating one.

In thanks, you’ll receive a digital certificate with your adopted turkey’s photo and bio—or you can choose a mailed print certificate that includes their rescue story. You’ll also be signed up for a one-year subscription to Sanctuary, our biannual print magazine!

Meet this year’s spokesturkeys:

Item #: Bowie -

Bowie “The Superstar” Bowie is a vocal showman who loves to strut for attention! But he nearly lost his chance to shine.  He was a companion animal, yet his guardian kept him in an 8x8 pen along with two other turkeys and a large flock of chickens. After Bowie started pecking at the chickens in frustration, his guardian understood he needed more space and decided to release the group to Sanctuary.  Now, he gets along with his new rooster pals. They’ll often puff out their...

Item #: Thelma -

Thelma “The Tender Heart” Thelma’s rescuer freed her from meat production. While most turkeys today are bred to have white feathers (this yields light-colored bodies, per consumer demand), heritage breeds like Thelma are slaughtered for food as well.  Shortly after her rescue, wildfires nearly destroyed her home. Thelma once again needed a safe place to land––and she found it at Farm Sanctuary.  Thelma is a shy, but kind and sensitive soul. She now spends her days roaming...

Item #: Celeborn -

Celeborn “The Protector” Celeborn’s former guardians had good intentions, but they took on too many animals and found themselves in over their heads. Now, safe at Farm Sanctuary, he’s free to live a life of his choosing—and he prefers one where he’s in charge. Celeborn is bossy around people but has a soft spot for the birds he’s trying to impress. His biggest devotees are the turkey hens who live next door—and he’ll chase off anyone who dares to come too close to his terrain. He’s charming,...

Item #: Faye -

Faye “The Explorer” Faye was very sick as a baby and would have died without a second chance. Faye is a Broad Breasted White (a popular breed raised for meat) and was up for sale at a feed store. Most customers ignored him—but one employee felt sorry for Faye and asked a local rescuer for help.  Faye recovered at Farm Sanctuary and today, he’s a lively, dominant force in his flock. Faye loves exploring his pasture with his chicken friends, strutting for caregivers, and rushing us for...

Item #: Alexandra -

Alexandra “The Great” Alexandra is seven years old—a remarkable feat when you consider most turkeys are killed between four and five months old. Alexandra came from a factory farm: a windowless building packed with rapidly growing, stressed birds. She was also debeaked, which is an industry practice meant to keep the birds from fighting out of fear and frustration. (Damaged flesh means zero profits.)  Since Alexandra’s rescue, however, this curious go-getter has been free as a...
