For the past 25 years, Farm Sanctuary has rescued more than 1,000 turkeys, which are adopted out or given permanent residence at their New York and California farms. For $30, you can sponsor one of these birds and receive an "adoption certificate" with a photo and fun details about your turkey. (Skip, for example, is "gregarious and confident" and has a penchant for grapes and canned yams.)
You could even incorporate your new "family member" into the holiday festivities by framing the certificate, giving the kids art supplies to draw pictures of their turkey, and watching some of Farm Sanctuary's videos such as the one below.
What do you think? Would you adopt a turkey for yourself or a vegetarian dinner guest?
