Thinking of starting a new tradition this year? Channel your inner Ginnifer Goodwin and adopt a turkey from Farm Sanctuary, a farm animal protection organization. According to Farm Sanctuary, thousands of holiday turkeys are being confined in "dark, filthy sheds, debeaked and detoed without anesthetic and bred to reach a crippling weight at an unnaturally fast rate."
Gross. Instead of contributing to the [very!] graphic situation above, Farm Sanctuary offers adoption and sponsorship opportunities for our favorite November bird. As a turkey sponsor, Farm Sanctuary will send you a certified photo of your new feathered friend, along with a few fun details. I sort of have a thing for Gideon; isn't he a looker?
Feeling ambitious this year? Why not adopt a whole flock in lieu of holiday gifts? Sure beats last year's fruitcake. Gobble, gobble!
