Gandalf started out as the main menu item for someone's Thanksgiving dinner. He had been purchased as a chick and was fed and raised with the intent of being served as the main course.  As the holiday approached, his owner had a change of heart. Instead of being eaten, he came to live at SASHA Farm where he quickly became the patriarch of the turkey flock. He displays his gorgeous feathers nearly all year round to remind the other turkeys of his role. 








Big Mouth the Turkey

Big Mouth was an unwanted, sick baby chick at the feed store. A woman got him and cared for him but she soon lost her barn and had nowhere to keep him. She called us because she felt like SASHA Farm would be the perfect fit for his new home.


Every year MILLIONS of turkeys suffer the fate of being slaughtered for Thanksgiving. We can change this tradition. Consider sponsoring a turkey this holiday season in honor of all the poor turkeys that are not as lucky as he is. Sponsor one HERE.

Sponsor an Animal!


At SASHA Farm, we provide life long care for almost 300 farmed animals. This is a big job, and you can help in a big way! Your sponsorship will help us provide food, veterinary care and a safe permanent home for the animal of your choosing and their friends.


Each animal has a sad story to tell of their lives before arriving at SASHA Farm. Browse through the animal profiles to get to know a few of our residents better and see how their lives have changed for the better since arriving at the sanctuary.


Animal sponsorships start at just $30. When one touches your heart, you can sponsor that animal here. You may also print that page and send your payment to PO Box 222, Manchester, MI 48158. Of course, not all the animal residents can be listed online, so you can also choose a species and let us select the individual most in need of a sponsor. You will receive a wonderful sponsor package including a certificate, letter, and photo within about two weeks.


Sponsorships also make great gifts!
