At Farm Sanctuary, we inspire people to think about turkeys differently. Since 1986, Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey Project has encouraged people to sponsor a rescued turkey for the holiday season 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 or your gift recipient a turkey adoption certificate. The certificate includes the turkey’s photo, rescue story, and quick facts about their background and personality. You can choose to receive a bi-fold printed certificate (perfect for displaying on your holiday table) or skip the printed certificate and receive a digital certificate only.

Availability: In Stock
Item #: Sandy -

Sandy “The Sweetheart” Sandy’s former guardian rescued her from slaughter but failed to give her proper care — housing her with several males, whose relentless mating attempts caused severe bruising and feather loss. Sandy also had a painful, untreated foot infection. In 2016, Farm Sanctuary evacuated our Acton, California shelter during a wildfire. We met Sandy at an evacuation site and, noticing her poor health, offered to take on her care. Despite her previous mistreatment, Sandy, “The...

Elsa the best friend turkey
Price: $35.00
Availability: In Stock
Item #: Elsa -

Elsa “The Best Friend” Elsa was one of 24 baby turkeys left in our care. Based on their poor health and appearance, they likely came from a factory farm. The birds were debeaked and had upper respiratory infections; some were too weak to stand. Most turkeys raised for meat are slaughtered by the time they’re five months old; Elsa is eight years old today. Despite her previous mistreatment by humans, Elsa enjoys our attention. As “The Best Friend” of her flock, she also brings the party...

Galadriel the Graceful Turkey
Price: $35.00
Availability: In Stock
Item #: Galadriel -

Galadriel “The Graceful” Galadriel is a majestic bird who values the finer things in life, from dust bathing to relaxing with friends and awaiting service from her caregivers. While shy around people, she accepts treats and attention on her terms. Unfortunately, her former guardians failed to give the Royal Palm turkey the royal treatment she deserved — or proper care in general. A rescuer alerted us to her situation and we brought a group of animals, including Galadriel, home to Farm...

Availability: In Stock
Item #: Roberto -

Roberto “The Adventurer” Roberto came to Farm Sanctuary after his guardian passed away. The guardian kept farm animals as companions, and relatives didn’t want to send them to slaughter. Like the turkeys raised on factory farms, heritage breeds like Roberto are slaughtered for meat at a fraction of their lifespan. While some producers strive for humane farming practices — giving turkeys better food, care, and more space to roam — killing anyone who wants to live is inhumane. At Farm Sanctuary,...

Item #: George -

George “The Homebody” Before coming to Farm Sanctuary, George shared a small enclosure with two other turkeys and a group of chickens. As the animals grew, they began outgrowing their space. George is also a Broad Breasted Bronze, a breed raised for rapid and excessive growth in meat production. However, the guardian saw George as a companion and wanted her to find sanctuary. Here, “The Homebody” of her flock can finally live on her terms. Sometimes friendly and cuddly and other times...
