When we met little Velma for the first time, she was barely clinging to life. Severely ill with pneumonia and so full of infection that her eyes were swollen shut and she could hardly breathe, the baby turkey was found lying helplessly in the middle of a busy road. Fortunately, a compassionate passerby spotted her in time and took her straight to Farm Sanctuary, where we administered emergency treatments. Thankfully, Velma has since made a complete turnaround and is now healthy enough to spend her days exploring green pastures with her new best friend, Daphne. We can’t think of anything to be more thankful for this Thanksgiving than happy endings like this one!
Won’t you join us in celebrating Velma’s second chance by becoming her sponsor through our Adopt-A-Turkey Project? A one-time donation of $30 will get you a special adoption certificate and the warm and fuzzy feeling that comes with knowing that your gift will make a difference for turkeys like Velma and farm animals everywhere. And now, thanks to Ady Gil, an incredible Farm Sanctuary supporter who has offered to match every sponsorship from friends like you with another adoption now through November 25, your contribution will go twice as far! Sponsor today to take advantage of this special matching gift opportunity, and help more turkeys this holiday season.
