What type of activism do you enjoy? (i.e. leafletting, tabling, hosting film screenings, letter writing, restaurant outreach, etc...)

I'm Charlie My wife Sue and I lost our Nikki (female Chow) to cancer this last April. Since then we have rescued, either by choice or default, one 3 yr old Chow Chow, Lady, (we found Lady a very nice, single pet home) then Jack a male Doberman 1yr old with some negative aggressive behaviors (after 3 mos we found Jack a very nice home) followed by an adventure 2 weeks ago that led us to a stray heart-worm positive 2-3 yr old female little undernourished red Chow Chow whom we are caring for in the hope of finding her loving home (update - who has become a permanent member of our family) and Jax, a 1 year old male Doberman- who also who has become a permanent member of our family. Not sure if that answers the question but it works for me

Why do you want to help animals?

Hello!!! They are our living breathing, relatives sharing the same space as us on this big rock.

When do you have availability so that other members can reach you to pair up to do activism?

I check my Meetups daily

Introduction

Hi, I'm Charlie. My wife, Sue, and I have recently retired and living life to it's fullest. We have been using our time to get caught up on some life changing priorities like eating to live and sharing our love.

What Charlie K. is saying about this Meetup Group

Can't say for sure much of an impact this Veg Fest had on the community but during the 3 short hours Sue and I worked the pay-per-view booth, I saw children cringe, women and men cry, some were angry by what that saw, others were emotional as they faced their own convictions toward animal cruelty maybe for the first time in their lives, still others were reassured and recommitted them selves to either going deeper into the lifestyle or 100% vegan or simply happy that they had decided to live the vegan/vegetarian lifestyle.
