Find-a-Friend Friday: George the Turkey (Sultan, Washington)
I know that Tofurky Day has come and gone, but in honor of the holiday, today’s adoptable animal is (drumroll please) a turkey!
Depending on where you live, adoptable farmed animals aren’t always easy to find locally; birds who are exploited for their meat, like chickens and turkeys, are even rarer at shelters and humane societies. So today, let’s take a trip to Sultan, Washington, where Pasado’s Safe Haven cares for a variety of companion and farmed animals – turkeys included.
Along with Newbie and Eagle, George the turkey is one of a few lucky birds who have found refuge at Pasado’s.

George the Turkey
George is a 3 year old, male, Bronze Turkey. The Bronze turkey has very big, patterned and colored, fanning plumage to show off and this big beautiful guy is a typical older male turkey. He is very confident, and gets along well with everyone, assuming they give him room to strut and spread out those gorgeous feathers that make the turkey ladies swoon!
George is able to fly, and can go over the 4 foot fence with ease, so any family that takes George in, should be aware that he needs an extra high enclosure to keep him safe from predators. George gets along well with chickens, roosters, and other turkeys, but should be monitored when he is with other male turkeys to ensure that no rivalries are started. George loves to roost, and it is not uncommon to find him perched somewhere high, resting and watching the flock.

If you’re not set up to care for farmed animals – and, let’s face it, most of us aren’t – please consider a donation to help fund Pasado’s kind and compassionate work. Like many rescue groups, they also need volunteers, foster homes, and even an intern. Please spread the word (and spare the turkeys)!

Heathen. Vegan. Feminist.


love love love:

♥ Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials;
♥ Margaret Atwood (especially the Mad Adam series & The Handmaid's Tale);
♥ The Hunger Games;
♥ The X-Files;
♥ (Mostly) everything Joss Whedon; and
♥ Unicorns, narwhals, time travel & zombies (not necessarily in that order).

Also, I'd rather pretend that season 6 of Lost never happened, and that Alias ended with the 2003 Superbowl episode.
