Puppy Love, Board Meetings, Shelter Me, Eggs and More!

Weekly Board Meetings: We want to hear from you!

Every week, the Animal Advocates Executive Board meets to discuss events and ideas for our group. While we will continue to meet as a board separately, we know that many members of Animals Advocates who are not in Executive Board would like to have their voices heard and have more of an active role in the organization. Therefore, after our board meetings every week we will be opening up a time slot where everyone can come talk to the board about their ideas. This will take normally take place on Wednesdays, but this week feel free to come talk to us on Thursday at 6:30 on the fourth floor of the Marvin Center, by the couches. We look forward to seeing you there!

General Body Meeting and Screening of Shelter Me!

On Febuary 20th, We will be hosting our monthly board meeting! We would love for all of our members to be there and give us their great ideas for how to improve our amazing organization!

We will go over all the great things we’ve done in the past month and try to find ways to get everyone more included in Animal Advocates.  We will also be  featuring FREE vegan comfort food to drive away the February cold. (Who doesn’t love free food?)

In keeping with our dog theme of our Puppy Love, we will continue our monthly documentary screening with Shelter Me.This is an uplifting documentary that celebrates the human-animal bond with positive stories about shelter pets and their new homes. The film follows the journey of two stray dogs, from the day they are picked up on the streets and brought to the shelter until the day they became a beloved family pet.

We have lots of great events coming up to talk about, and will be discussing sweet T-shirts!! Come and get ’em in MSSC ROOM 104!


Eggs, Eggs, Eggs!

At the last general body meeting, we told you that we are starting a new initiative to get cage-free eggs at J Street Diner. We are still working on this and would love your help trying to make this project a reality. However, we wanted to give you some background on why this is such an important project that needs our action

When you eat an egg you are supporting the murder of hundreds of millions of male chicks every year (200,000,000 – two-hundred million in the United States alone).  They are killed by the hundreds of thousands every day by being thrown in a dumpster and left to die, tossed in garbage bags and suffocated, or more commonly, by being ground up alive in meat grinders.

Every time you buy a carton of eggs, whether they are conventional, organic, free-range, cage-free, certified humanely raised, etc., you are in effect paying for the murder of hundreds of millions of baby animals.
