Ellen for Turkeys

Ellen helps turkeys as the new Farm Sanctuary Adopt-A-Turkey Project spokesperson.

Farm Sanctuary has announced talk-show host and animal-advocate Ellen DeGeneres as the 2010 spokesperson for its Adopt-A-Turkey Project. Adopt-A-Turkey, which launched October 1, is an annual event that has been running since 1986, and seeks to create an alternative to the Thanksgiving turkey tradition. Adopt-A-Turkey has rescued more than 1,000 turkeys, found them loving homes, and educated people about the living conditions of turkeys set to slaughter. “Ellen’s positive energy and zest for life make her the perfect ambassador for these charismatic birds, who also possess a strong desire to enjoy life,” president and co-founder of Farm Sanctuary Gene Baur said.
