Thank the Turkeys 2016, website graphic
Join us for our 7th annual Thank the Turkeys celebration on Saturday, November 5, 2016. Celebrate life and compassion by thanking the turkeys (and our other residents) for bringing joy to our hearts despite what they have endured.

Spend time with the rescued residents, help feed the turkeys and chickens, and then drive over to a beautiful event center and enjoy a catered vegan dinner! Miyoko Schinner of Miyoko’s Kitchen will speak before we dine.

Each ticket includes a gourmet vegan dinner, swag bag loaded with goodies, and one raffle ticket.

Be sure to bring cash, a credit card, or your checkbook to buy extra raffle tickets for your chance to win some amazing prizes! The raffle is open from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., and tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20.

Want to make a weekend of it? Our Guest House, located next door to the sanctuary, is open for business!

    The animals are all so beautiful and precious! I wish I lived near you so I could volunteer and help daily. I love all animals…Thank you for your wonderful work and for saving these gorgeous and loving creatures…

    It was very enlightening. The main speaker Will Tuttle was excellent. The vegan food was delicious. There were over 250 people at the grange. So, we did not overeat. It was like the story of Jesus and the brussel sprouts (fish I mean). They had to make it go a long way since they were not expecting that many guests. The animals were amazing most importantly of all!

    Will there be wine / beer at the Thank the Turkeys dinner? If not, are we able to bring our own?
