Take Action for Turkeys

Every Thanksgiving, the lives of 46 million turkeys are taken for the sake of a single meal. Help us bring this senseless suffering and cruelty to an end by Pledging to eat a Vegan Thanksgiving

Instead of Thanksgiving, let us celebrate ThanksLIVING.

Let us reach out to more and more people and spread the word of compassion.

Let us inspire our friends and family to eat food that did not come from pain and suffering. 

Let us redefine these holidays and make them about – ‘Compassionate Gratitude.’ 

Let us take the Pledge to eat vegan on Thanksgiving

 For every Turkey Sponsorship and Pledge to eat your First Vegan Thanksgiving, Robert Heyer–our Animal Enrichment Coordinator–will run one lap around the sanctuary in celebration of ThanksLiving. A Trot for Turkeys, a Trot for Compassion.

Robert has been vegan for about 4 years. He remembers the time when he ran laps around school to win a Turkey for his Thanksgiving meal.  Instead of taking and eating someone’s life, he wants to give back and save lives,  running a lap for every one who chooses a Vegan ThanksLiving.

Make your pledge today!
