Mr. Pickles and Turtle looking for sponsorship at Farm Sanctuary

Feathered residents Mr. Pickles and Turtle are available for sponsorship at Farm Sanctuary, the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization. The pair was seized as tiny chicks from a city pet shop—their feathers had been dyed in Easter egg colors as part of a cruel promotion. All grown up now, this pair’s true colors are finally shining through but they are in need of loving sponsors to show them that they are beautiful and loved.

Animals at Farm Sanctuary depend on funding from caring individuals to help with the cost of food, support, and veterinary care. Sponsorship packages make a year-long commitment to a Farm Sanctuary animal through monthly, quarterly, biannual, or annual payments. Sponsors receive a personalized adoption certificate and a beautiful color photo of their adopted farm friend.

Click here to sponsor Mr. Pickles or Turtle or any other animal at Farm Sanctuary. You can also choose to make a special one-time gift to the animals.
