What would you like to see from this meetup group?

Most of the animal rights people with whom I have contact are not local. I would like to be involved in local efforts to stop inhumane farming practices and end the practice of euthanizing "unadoptable" pets. I would also very much like to see campaigns to educate people about the horrific consequences of using poison to kill mice, and the stupidity of letting cats run around outdoors killing birds.

What, to you, is the biggest issue concerning animals?

(cont'd from above) animal rights' groups as I can afford; the two closest to my heart are D.E.L.T.A. and The Elephant Sanctuary. Right now, I am most concerned about the imminent extinction of the polar bear (I can't believe the Canadians are actually killing 300/year, even now).

Are there any demonstrations or activities you would like to see this group host?

I live in Lafayette, so my attendance at demonstrations in Denver is unlikely. However, I try to help in any way I can.

NOTE: We only require a "YES" RSVP if you plan to attend a gathering. Please don't RSVP "NO" to gatherings you don't plan to attend. "NO" RSVPs only create email for organizers. Only RSVP "NO" when you need to cancel a "YES". Make sense? Thanks!
