It is the responsibility of SPCAs and humane societies to help
raise the intrinsic value of animals in people’s minds. This
translates into not serving them at shelter-sponsored functions.
Shelters are role models for their community on how to treat animals.
SPCAs need to raise the public’s awareness and increase their
sensitivity towards all animals.
Moral consistency is a reasonable goal toward which animal protectionists
must strive. (Imagine if United Poultry Concerns offered a fur coat
to raise money for chickens.)
Charitable donations should not be used to perpetrate cruelty.
SPCAs and humane societies need to be the community leaders in
They can no longer ignore this issue. Time is long overdue to adopt
a humane menu, which is as easy as going to the vegetarian cookbook
section of the local bookstores.
Send them copies of UPC cookbooks Instead of Chicken, Instead
of Turkey: A Poultryless “Poultry” Potpourri and
Replacing Eggs (to order, see our merchandise pages).
For More Information: Contact Animal Place for
a copy of Food for Thought: Adopting an Animal Friendly Menu. This
FREE 12-page booklet is the ideal publication to share with your
local shelter. Info@AnimalPlace.org
