What if being a dog or cat-lover went hand-in-hand with being vegan? What if every dog and cat rescue group promoted a vegan policy? Suddenly, animal rights and veganism would be the norm. Our movement would massively increase overnight.
It turns out- we’re in desperate need for such a massive transition: in addition to being the #1 cause of animal cruelty in the world, global animal agriculture is also the leading cause of climate change and mass species extinction. And scientists are now admitting these crises are more urgent than ever before.
Over the next six months, in partnership with Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, we aim to change the hearts and minds of the dog and cat lovers in our communities. Join us as we welcome Denise Bitz and Paul Berry from Brother Wolf Animal Rescue and support them in encouraging all rescue groups to adopt a public vegan policy.
Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) is a grassroots network of animal rights activists. Through open rescue, demonstration, and disruption, we are creating a world where every animal is safe, happy and free.
DxE cultivates a welcoming and supportive community. We ask that all those who attend our events (online and offline) respect our Code of Conduct which can be reviewed at dxecodeofconduct.wikispaces.com/Code+of+Conduct.
