Yesterday I was lucky to attend Thanksgiving for the Turkeys at Pasado’s Safe Haven. Pasado’s Safe Haven is a non-profit animal rescue and sanctuary, dedicated to ending animal cruelty.
For the 4th year now, Pasado’s Safe Haven has hosted Thanksgiving for the Turkeys, a celebration that honors turkeys. They served a delicious vegan Thanksgiving meal prepared with local, fresh food.
To be honest, I was a little apprehensive. Would the main course be tofu turkey? Would we just be served a bunch of side dishes? Would I still enjoy a Thanksgiving meal without deviled eggs?
The meal was scrumptious!
After eating we had the opportunity to tour the sanctuary and see some of the animals that live there. I couldn’t believe how many animals there were, let alone the wide variety of animals. There were goats, sheep, llamas, geese, a donkey, cows, pigs, and cats and dogs, among others.
It was very enlightening to see all the animals and know that they are living a good and cruel-free life at the sanctuary.
Pasado’s Safe Haven was founded in 1997 in honor of “Pasado”, a beloved donkey who was tortured to death by teenagers. It occupies 85 acres of land in Monroe, WA.
