45 Million Dead

I know Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time of gratitude, and I appreciate that part of the holiday. I am, in fact, grateful to the Farm Sanctuary and all the people and organizations who do so much to help animals. I can't help, though, but be sad at Thanksgiving. Estimates point to 45 million of these curious, precious birds being killed as the centerpiece for dinners across the country. Learn more about turkeys here and visit the Farm Sanctuary's website to see turkeys celebrating the holiday free and at peace. Listen to an NPR story here about last weekend's Celebration for the Turkeys.

Celebration for the Turkeys

Babe, this 10 year old terrier mix, has been at the Tompkins County SPCA shelter for two months! His family gave him up in what should have been enjoying the prime of his life. Please visit the SPCA to see Babe or another dog or cat. Remember, don't shop, adopt!
