Let Mercy for Animals know you're coming! RSVP here.
A 10-foot-long inflatable puppy in a hamburger bun, smothered in cheese, ketchup, mustard and lettuce, to be exact. This attention-grabbing visual will join Mercy For Animals as we gather in Colorado Springs, Colo., to spark a debate over why we call some animals pets and others dinner.
Please join us for this traffic-stopping demonstration that will expose consumers to the reality that farmed animals, every bit as capable of experiencing pain and suffering as the dogs and cats so many of us know and love, are forced to endure egregious cruelty throughout their lives on factory farms before they are brutally slaughtered. Activists will also be holding signs and distributing literature promoting a vegetarian diet.
Signs, banners and leaflets will be provided. Join us on Thursday, November 7, 2013, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at South Nevada Avenue between East Cucharras Street and East Vermijo Avenue. Please dress professionally, as media coverage is expected.
