This month’s featured organization is Farm Sanctuary, an action group that opposes the slaughter, consumption and commodification of farm animals. They come complete with celebrity sponsors like Ellen, asking you to adopt a Turkey instead of eat one this Thanksgiving! Check it out 🙂
Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization. Since incorporating in 1986, Farm Sanctuary has worked to expose and stop cruel practices of the “food animal” industry through research and investigations, legal and institutional reforms, public awareness projects, youth education, and direct rescue and refuge efforts. Farm Sanctuary shelters in Watkins Glen, N.Y., and Orland, Calif., provide lifelong care for hundreds of rescued animals, who have become ambassadors for farm animals everywhere by educating visitors about the realities of factory farming.
