Hi Everyone!  We are 23 days away from the Los Angeles Walk for Farm Animals and so far we have reached 73% of our goal!  Keepin’ It Kind is also in sixth place overall in team donations!  We only need $135 more to reach our goal and to possibly increase our ranking and we can’t do it without your help.

Each week, I am sharing one reason why you should support our team in Farm Sanctuary’s Walk for Farm Animals.  Please check out Reason #1.

Why You Should Support Keepin It Kind in the Walk For Farm Animals, Reason #2

“Eileen and Shannon were scared and exhausted when they arrived at our New York Shelter. The two turkeys bore the blunted appendages that identify industry birds: Using no anesthetics, producers amputate the birds’ toe tips and portions of their beaks to mitigate damage from fighting, which is rampant among turkeys on factory farms. Crowded against each other in dim, squalid warehouses, these naturally social and affable birds are unable to establish a functional pecking order and become stressed and combative. This life of misery ends at the slaughterhouse for hundreds of millions of turkeys every year in the U.S., 46 million of whom are killed for Thanksgiving alone. Most of these creatures are hidden from view and kept from the expression of their own natures from their first breath to the last brutal moments of their lives.”

One compassionate person intervened and changed the fate of these two birds.  They were given to Farm Sanctuary to live out their lives in peace.  They are now able to peck in the grass, explore the grounds with their herd, and like most turkeys, they enjoy having their feathers stroked by their human friends.
