This handsome fella was displaced from his flock in Santa Fe when the flood waters raged in 2018. Todd and Tara, two kind and loving souls, provided Nigel with the best care, meeting all his needs as he imprinted on their property at their home sanctuary for about 2 years.
Nigel was then attacked by dogs ~ he fought for his life and in the loving care of Todd & Tara ~ he survived the night. He was then taken to a vet for special, loving care. Nigel was evaluated, his feathers were trimmed and his wounds were flushed.
We met Todd, Tara and Nigel at the vet’s office. Santuario de Karuna agreed to cover Nigel’s expenses and welcome him into forever sanctuary.
We continued cleaning his wounds and providing him with pain management and antibiotics.
Nigel was home! Never again will he fear an attack ~ he will know only love, delicious, nutritious food and excellent veterinary care surrounded by turkey friends and people who love him.
Fast forward & he is doing GREAT! Hanging at Patty’s Place with some of the larger birds: other turkeys (Samuel, Clark & Johnny Cash), Indigo the peacock & Rumi the rooster.
Please help us ensure that all Nigel’s needs are met and that we may continue to provide the best care for this precious soul by becoming his monthly sponsor for $15 a month.
Or one time donations are also greatly appreciated.
