Come out and help us encourage holiday shoppers to adopt, not shop, this holiday season. WEAR YOUR SANTA HAT FOR THIS DEMO. We'll be picketing, handing out literature, and generally encouraging people to adopt shelter animals. This meetup is sponsored by the Pinellas Working Group of Florida Voices for Animals, but all are welcome to join us!
P.S. I have a few Santa hats that I can bring (Don't ask why I have these), but if you have your own, that would be great! : ) --Bob

Florida Voices for Animals (FVA), sponsors of the Annual Tampa Bay VegFest, is a nonprofit organization. Our members work for the compassionate treatment of animals. Issues we're involved in: exploitation of animals in entertainment, on factory farms, and by breeders; protection of endangered wildlife; spay and neuter programs; reduction of domestic abuse and neglect of companion animals; promotion of plant-based diets; support of animal sanctuaries; and protection of the environment for all animals, human and nonhuman. Join us today to help create a gentler, more compassionate world! We hold lots of events in the Tampa Bay Area. Come to one of our pot lucks or dinners and meet renowned advocates for animals. Help us with leafleting or education of schoolchildren on animal rights and plant-based diets. Pitch in to help at one of our vegan bake sales or other advocacy events. Come to our celebrated ThanksVegan dinner. Join us to get involved, and meet lots of other caring, compassionate people like you!
