This holiday, Ellen Degeneres is probably thankful for many things. Friends, family, health and all the usual suspects. As for the not so common items to be thankful for, Ellen chose an, as of yet, unnamed rescued turkey.

The Gentle Barn, a sanctuary that Ellen supports, brought her home on Monday from a farm that allows families to come in and select their own turkey for slaughter for Thanksgiving.

These were her living conditions as of Monday before her rescue.

The Gentle Barn wrote about the conditions, “There is a horrible turkey farm where the animals are kept in awful and cramped conditions and people come with their children to select one to be killed and eaten for thanksgiving. We managed to save one today.”

To raise money, the sanctuary is auctioning off the privilege of naming her to the highest bidder. As of last night, bidding was up to $400. They will reveal the final name on Thanksgiving night. If you want to donate some cash and pick a name for this beautiful girl, head over to their facebook page.
