It now goes to the full Senate, but bill sponsor Sen. Tom Davis said he knows it won’t get ultimate approval this legislative year, which wraps up in May.

Letter: Reader curious about future shelter fundraising possibilities

Posted on March 30, 2018 4:04 pm by Submitted via Email

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.
