Help Suffering Turkeys by Educating Your Community

Every year, more than 300 million turkeys are bred for slaughter in
the United States. Genetically engineered to grow abnormally fast
and large, and confined to filthy, overcrowded warehouses, most of
these turkeys live short, brutal, and unhappy lives. Yet sadly, most
Americans have no idea where their Thanksgiving dinners come from.
This holiday season, help educate others about the plight of turkeys
by sharing compassionate Thanksgiving fliers, books, and videos with
your community. For more information, please visit
www.adoptaturkey.org (http://www.adoptaturkey.org) or call (607) 583-2225 ext. 229.
