EDITOR’S NOTE: This was written in response to A Second Chance Animal Shelter holding a fundraiser that featured a meat-based entree and no vegan options.

Just a suggestion for future fundraising events. Is It ever okay for an animal welfare organization to serve meat at a fundraiser? No. Animal nonprofits, especially shelters, humane societies and SPCAs, should care about what happens to all animals, including farmed animals. Fortunately, more and more are doing exactly that.

    I THINK EVERYONE should eat what they want and stop sticking their noses into what other people eat. If what you eat is not on the menu then stay away. I am starting a new club called P.E.T.A. People Eating Tasty Animals

    What a joke. If you don’t like what’s being served, don’t go. Stop trying to force your opinion on what’s right on the rest of us. The only way serving meat at a dinner would be wrong would be if they were serving dog or cat!

    Thanks to our shelter staff for everything you do to save so many dogs and cats. I hope you can just ignore such petty criticism. The fundraiser was very successful and I applaud each and every one of you. I adopted one of the first dogs you took in and loved him for 13 wonderful years. My daughter has her little 12 yr old rescue from the Second Chance Animal Shelter and trust me, she is adored. All my donations go to the thrift shop and I support you in every way possible.

    Just wondering if the organization mentioned in the letter is also pro human life.
