Join Farm Sanctuary at their Celebration FOR the Turkeys: Benefit for Our Feathered Friends

Looking for something positive and animal-friendly to commemorate Thanksgiving this year? Consider attending the Celebration for the Turkeys on November 21st at Farm Sanctuary. They write:

Farm Sanctuary is hosting coast-to-coast benefits to protect innocent turkeys and promote compassionate Thanksgiving traditions everywhere. Farm Sanctuary’s Celebrations FOR the Turkeys: Benefits for Our Feathered Friends — held in three locations this year — will feature decadent, gourmet vegan holiday feasts, inspirational guest presentations, and silent auctions that benefit the animals and provide for all your holiday shopping needs! Guests at our farm events will also have the opportunity to spend quality time with rescued animals and participate in our unique “Feeding of the Turkeys” ceremonies, in which the sanctuary turkeys are the guests of honor and get to feast on their favorite treats: squash, pumpkin pie and cranberries!

Here’s info on the event at the Watkins Glen shelter, which includes an appearance by Tom Regan!

Also, consider sponsoring a rescued turkey living at Farm Sanctuary, through their Adopt-a-Turkey Project.
