Adopt A Turkey and Teach Compassion This Thanksgiving.

Adopt a turkey 2014

Every year millions of turkeys are killed for meat. Thanksgiving is no celebration for turkeys. The day marks a dangerous disconnect in us humans. We mark a day of giving thanks for what we have with the slaughter of another living being. Turkeys are social, intelligent birds that deserve a full life of freedom. Turkeys on factory farms are bred to so big they have bone and joint problems and are prone to fatal heart attacks.They have their beaks and part of their toes seared off. They are denied the ability to roost and fully extend their wings. They are killed around just five months old. Countless times undercover workers have documented slaughterhouse workers kicking, punching, stomping and swinging the birds around breaking their bones. The workers leave them suffering in pain on the slaughterhouse floor.

There are 13 turkeys that call SASHA Farm home. These turkeys are lucky to have the safety and comfort of a life at a  sanctuary but most turkeys are not afforded any more than abuse and death. Consider adopting a SASHA Farm turkey and your sponsorship will go toward the food and care for our turkeys. It will also help us rescue more turkeys lives.

Please Help Us Find Morris A Forever Home!

Morris Day the Dog

This is Morris Day. He is a 2-4 year old (we are not 100% sure of his age) neutered pit mix. Morris had been mistreated by his former owner and had a tiny laundry room with a crate to live in. Morris was physically mistreated and therefore did not trust people at all. We found Morris a great foster who has been working with him but the arrangement is just temporary. Now we need to find that one person who is a perfect match. He is great with other dogs but no kids just to be on the safe side. He's learning his base set of commands and shows real aptitude for off leash reliability. He loves running next to a bike, playing with other dogs and playing with toys. He's totally house-broken, crate trained and super loving. He really enjoys affection. Please share this info with anyone you might know who can help or to adopt Morris call Zeke Askew at (734) 546-4743.

Look who moved in!

New Turkeys

Late Sunday evening we were called out to rescue 12 domestic turkeys. They were left behind at a house where the owners had a domestic dispute. The people had not been living in the house for some time. We loaded up the turkeys and brought them back to the sanctuary to feed them and warm them up as it had been a chilly and rainy evening. They are very sweet and super curious birds. We will be doing a special sponsorship opportunity for these guys so stay tuned. More info coming soon.

End Chickens as Kaporos!

End Chickens as Kaporos!

Before Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, hundreds of thousands of observant Jews across the world partake in Kaporos, a religious ritual in which participants swing live chickens around their heads while saying a prayer to transfer their sins to the animals. After the ceremony, a ritual slaughterer cuts their throats and stuffs them into inverted cones, garbage bags or dumpsters where they bleed to death, taking the sins with them.
Each year, dozens of activists protest at Kaporos sites in Brooklyn, which is home to tens of thousands of Orthodox Jews. During the protests, activists plead with participants to perform the ritual with coins intend of live chickens, an option offered in Jewish scripture. The participants argue that live chickens must be used, according to God.
What angers and mobilizes activists is not only the barbaric ritual but also the conditions in which the animals are held for days. Stuffed into milk crates, the chickens are unable to move and are deprived of food, water, protection from the elements and the ability to clean off the urine and feces of the chickens stacked above them. It is in this weakened state that participants grab them by their fragile wings, often breaking them, and perform the ritual.

This year SASHA Farm will hopefully be involved in helping save some of these Kaporos chickens. For more information on how you can help visit this website: http://www.endchickensaskaporos.com/
