Turkey Sponsorships

Looking for a way to celebrate your vegan Thanksgiving and help care for rescued turkeys? Consider sponsoring a turkey! I did a quick search today, clicking through the sanctuaries listed on Your Daily Vegan's Animal Sanctuary Database, and here are the options I found:

Turkey Sponsorships (Thanksgiving Specials)

Catskill Animal Sanctuary (Saugerties, NY)
“You have two options for turkey sponsorship this month:
For a one–time donation of $25 you’ll receive:

  1. A PDF booklet of Chef Linda’s Compassionate Thanksgiving recipes
  2. A glossy photo of your new turkey friend to place at your table
For either a recurring monthly donation of $18 or a one-time donation of $216 you’ll receive:
  1. A PDF booklet of Chef Linda’s Compassionate Thanksgiving recipes
  2. A one year Family Membership (a $65 value!) Your Family Membership entitles your household to free tours April–October and reduced admission to special events.
  3. Two glossy photos of your turkey along with their rescue story, perfect for a place at the dinner table.
  4. The option to come and visit your sponsored turkey year–round by appointment (please call or email 72 hours in advance) and see for yourself the quality of care your support provides.”
Turkeys you can sponsor: Declan, Daisy.

Farm Sanctuary (Watkins Glen, NY & Orland, CA)

P.S. Putting this list together may have been me procrastinating a bit on my NaNoWriMo writing. Hehehe. (I'm at 6,947 words total after the writing I got done yesterday.)

Peace. :)
