What animal issues most interest you? (e.g., factory farms, spay and neuter programs, endangered wildlife, feral cats, etc)?

I believe puppy breeding for profit should be outlawed. And, spay and neutering should ne mandatory until the population is controlled enough that no dog is euthanized due to "lack of space." And, Im extremely passionate about the wrongs Seaworld is perpetrating on sea mammals. Im passionate about protecting elephants and repopulating wolves and wild Florida pumas.

Do you currently follow a vegan or vegetarian diet? Interested in learning more about such diets generally?

Vegetarian since 11/28/2012, during lunch break. Im an RN, I was enjoying an Amys frozen something. When, a female anesthesiologist said casually in passing, "When we eat meat, we eat the stress hormones of the animals that are released as they are being slaughtered." That was a before and after moment for me. Id tried vegetarian years ago. Failed miserably due to lack of guidance. Now, with the internet and veggie type magazines, Ive done much better. Even my non-veggie family eats more veggie meals now. Plus, my cholesterol dtopped 44 points!!! The longer I'm a vegetarian, the more vegan I tend to be. Im excited to watch your show on 8/14/15.

Are you interested in volunteering to help animals?

Yes! But, i work full time and need to balance work / life. So, for now my "volunteering" begins at home with my 2 pittie rescues and my fruit and herb gardening.

Do you want to know about our dinners, speaker events, demonstrations, etc? Tell us how you would like to get involved.

Please!!! I need more infp on cooking with vegan proteins like soy, tempe, seitan, etc.
