Their Christmas Wish

Their Christmas Wish refers to the lucky turkeys who get to live out their lives free from harm in rescue centres. Their Christmas Wish aims to ensure as many people as possible have a cruelty-free Christmas dinner, to spare turkeys just like them from suffering and death.

Christmas should be a time of peace and goodwill to all – including animals. Every year, millions of turkeys are slaughtered for Christmas dinners in the UK. The majority of these animals would have spent their short lives on factory farms, before being transported to the slaughterhouse and facing a brutal and terrifying death.


Their Christmas Wish shines a light on the many lucky turkeys who have been saved from slaughter and now live their lives free from harm at animal sanctuaries. One such turkey is Silver who was destined to be raised on a factory farm. Thankfully a farm worker took pity on her upon discovering that she had been born with a facial deformity; she now lives with her turkey friends at The Retreat Animal Rescue.

Audrey and Maria were destined to be slaughtered for Christmas dinners in 2018, but they were lucky enough to be rescued by Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary, where they will spend the rest of their lives living free from harm and safe from slaughter.

It has never been easier to have a cruelty-free Christmas, with every major supermarket now having huge plant-based festive ranges, and so many recipes available online! In fact, we’re here to help.
