Going vegan is easy! Here's what one group wrote to us:
"Dear UPC, The Spayed Club has held all-vegan functions for 1 1/2 years now. We
don't mention it in our fundraising literature only because we don't want to 'scare'
off potential supporters by making an issue of it. Instead, we call the food 'delicious
and nutritious,' or whatever description we happen to use, and let the people arrive
at our events. Most people have seemed pleasantly surprised by what we serve them,
and often they'll ask questions about the foods they've never seen or heard of before.
I haven't heard of any complaints that we don't offer dead chickens or cows. We feel
our quiet approach to promoting veganism is non-threatening and very well received.
"The Spayed Club works hard to prevent suffering of dogs and cats, but has
compassion for all beings, and has committed to veganism to be part of the
solution to end the preventable suffering of all beings."
