Our Guests of Honor

Ziggy and Star Turkeys

In 2016, Pasado’s Safe Haven received a call from a military family who raised turkeys as pets and were no longer able to care for them. The fate of the small family of turkeys was uncertain. Pasado’s Safe Haven rescued them, happy to give the turkeys, including Ziggy and Star, a safe and happy home at the sanctuary.

Not all turkeys are so lucky, which is why we are choosing to honor them with a heartfelt plant-based feast. Learn more about how most turkeys are treated in our food system: TURKEYS USED FOR FOOD
