The Washington Post published an article November 16 featuring the annual Poplar Springs Animal Sanctuary Thanksgiving for the Turkeys event, which comes at a time when many major news publications, such as The New York Times, are covering vegan Thanksgiving alternatives. The article explains that before the attendees sit down to eat, the sanctuary’s six turkeys are introduced by Poplar Spring’s Executive Director Terry Cummings, and the turkeys are given their dinners.

Last year, more than 600 people attended the feast.
