Celebrate Turkeys at Animal Place's Thank the Turkeys Party! - SOLD OUT!
Ticket includes a pumpkin or sweet potato pie for the turkeys, (for Feeding the Turkeys time), time with the animals, a delicious vegan meal, and Jonathan Balcombe's speech! You can also purchase a copy of Jonathan Balcombe's book Second Nature - sales benefit Animal Place directly.
Below are some of the turkeys you will get to meet! There are sixteen turkeys at Animal Place, all with unique stories and incredible personalities. You'll meet The Boys - Dakota, Seneca, Miwok, Cheyenne, and Creek - all saved from Thanksgiving slaughter. They've been de-beaked and de-toed. Franny is one of our beautiful bronze girls who was rescued from a turkey breeding farm. Margaret is simply the best darn turkey ever - she is a 7-yr-old hen saved from a breeding farm, where she would have been repeatedly artificially inseminated. She has been severely de-beaked and de-toed, but she LOVES grapes and the people who provide them!
A big thank you to the sponsors that helped ensure a vegan catering company was used for this event!
