Antoinette

Antoine

Three days before Thanksgiving 2016, we celebrated the arrival of Antoinette the baby turkey.

Antoinette was found outside of a live-kill market in New York City, a type of market commonly found in big cities across the country, where people go to pick out a live turkey among the hundreds of other scared birds and rabbits shoved into small crates. The turkey is then killed on-site while the others all await the same terrible fate.

AntoineOf the 46 million turkeys killed in the name of “giving thanks” every holiday, Antoinette is one of the lucky ones. She is named after “The Little Prince” author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry—a book all about love and devotion.

Antoinette currently resides in our medical building, where caregiving staff are providing any necessary medical treatments and around-the-clock care, before joining the rest of the flock.turkey-button

Welcome home, baby Antoinette, where you will be treated as a friend and not food. You are forever safe. 

Sponsor Antoinette and give her a new beginning—your support will help provide her with the shelter and care she needs.
