Get to know more about Sassafras

Sassafras, affectionately known as Sassy, was a spirited and lively turkey who always had something to say. She had a unique personality, full of spunk and a knack for gossip. Sassy’s journey to Animal Place began when she was legally liberated from a turkey hatchery, where she would have faced a different fate. She found a loving home at Animal Place, where she lived a long and cherished life. Though Sassy has passed away, her vibrant spirit will always be remembered. May she rest in peace.
