In honor of Thanksgiving, each year, Geeks Of Doom takes part in Farm Sanctuary‘s Adopt a Turkey project, where we donate to sponsor one of the rescued birds living at one of their sanctuaries.
This year, Reggie and Jake – the animated stars of the film Free Birds (voiced by Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson), have partnered with Farm Sanctuary to be “spokesturkeys” for the annual event.
“We want you to join our flock and adopt a turkey today!,” said Reggie and Jake.
A one-time donation gets you a special adoption certificate complete with color photo and fun details about your new “adopted” turkey.
Here’s some tidbits about turkeys, including some of those that live at the Farm Sanctuary shelters in New York and California.
Turkeys are, in fact, intelligent and social animals, who form lifelong bonds and possess unique abilities to communicate with one another. Just as “Free Birds” brings to life the personalities of each of its animal characters, caretakers at Farm Sanctuary know that real-life turkeys possess distinct personalities and exhibit a joy for life. Among the adoptable turkeys are:
Tulip, who lives at Farm Sanctuary’s New York Shelter; she is sensitive and kind to her flockmates and loves grapes and cranberries,
Minerva, an attention-loving turkey with a passion for sunflower seeds, who resides at the rescue group’s shelter near Los Angeles, and
Tibbott, an outgoing guy who resides at Farm Sanctuary’s Northern California Shelter; he loves to meet new people and snack on lettuce and grapes.
You can see, back in 2011, we wrote about Elizabeth, the turkey we sponsored that year.
