Adopting Animals for the Holidays

Farm Sanctuaries offer adoption programs for holiday gifts.

This holiday season, people who are looking to give the gift of compassion are able to adopt a farm animal or make a donation in someone’s name to one of the many farm sanctuaries in the US. Donations made to Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary come with a family membership to the sanctuary for a year. Catskills Animal Sanctuary is matching donations until the end of the year; and Farm Sanctuary adoption packages include gifts such as a Farm Sanctuary mug. Animal Place has a Secret Santa program for the animals, and Animal Acres has plenty of animals in need of “parents.” The farm sanctuaries advocate adopting animals as a way to compassionately spend the holidays.
