It’s Adopt-a-Turkey Time  »

Why pardon a turkey when you can adopt one? It’s almost Thanksgiving, which means it’s time to plunk down your dollars for Farm Sanctuary’s annual Adopt-A-Turkey Project. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

Adopt-a-Turkey Project seeks to end the misery of commercially raised turkeys by offering a compassionate alternative for Thanksgiving. Since 1986, Farm Sanctuary has rescued more than 1,000 turkeys, placed hundreds into loving homes through our annual Turkey Express adoption event, educated millions of people about their plight, and provided resources for a cruelty-free holiday. For a one-time $25 donation, anyone can sponsor turkeys residing at Farm Sanctuary.

Besides, you were already going to pay for tree-planting to offset the pollution from your flight out to Wisconsin so you can sit in front of a dead bird with your in-laws, right? So why not “offset” their decomposing feast and buy turkey sponsorships for everyone at the table? (Okay don’t sponsor the living birds as an excuse to eat the dead bird guilt-free, but if you’re reading this blog, you probably aren’t eating dead birds anyway. Remember: adopting a live turkey isn’t going to bring dead turkeys back to life—OR WILL IT???)

Anyway, if that’s not reason enough, LOOK AT HOW CUTE OLIVE IS:

Olive

LOOK AT HER GRUMPY BEAK-EXPRESSION AND RUMPLED FEATHERS!

Or if Olive doesn’t charm you, pick another turkey to sponsor and they’ll send you an adoption certificate of your very own.
