Farm Sanctuary has just announced that Ellen DeGeneres will once again lead their Adopt-A-Turkey Project this year. They want you to save a turkey, not eat one, this Thanksgiving.

DeGeneres, who is returning as spokesperson for the project for the second time, says “Did you know that every year between 250 and 300 million turkeys are bred for slaughter in the United States? More than 46 million for Thanksgiving alone. So, this Thanksgiving instead of eating a turkey, please join me in adopting one from Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt-A-Turkey Project and you can give a turkey something to be thankful for.”

Farm Sanctuary Co-Founder and President Gene Baur said, “We’re thrilled to have Ellen’s support again this year…Here at Farm Sanctuary, we live with turkeys, so we know they are interesting and intelligent and have complex emotional lives like dogs, cats and other animals. Sadly, the meat industry subjects turkeys to intolerable cruelty and treats them like inanimate objects with no feelings or personalities. Fortunately, each one of us can choose not to support this cruelty by adopting a turkey at Thanksgiving instead of eating one.”

Wouldn’t it be great to know you helped a turkey instead of ate one this holiday? If you want to save a turkey, you can adopt one for a one-time donation of $30. On their site, you  can see adorable photos of the turkeys in need of a sponsor. Farm Sanctuary sends all adopters a certificate with a photo and fun facts about their new turkey friend! If you can actually adopt two or more turkeys, you can apply to give a loving home!

Below, check out Farm Sanctuary’s video of two adopted turkeys going to their new home on the “Turkey Express.”

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
