Dear Veggie Friends,
We have had several new people join our group in the past few days, so our aggregate number is now 622 members! Please join me in welcoming Vanessa, Diamond, Van and Rachael. A number of us will be meeting this Thursday, November 8th, from 5-7 pm, at the Bon Temps Roule. There will be drink specials and vegan dishes. Proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of Louisiana (www.humanela.org) the primary sponsor of this group. If you like animals and want to support our community and statewide efforts to help them, please register at http://www.meetup.com/humanesociety-54/. Just imagine the difference we could make if all 622 of our members volunteered just two hours a month!
Lastly, we also recently established a community pet food bank for low-income companion animal owners and rescuers at the Animal Medical Center, located at 4734 Magazine Street, New Orleans. You can apply for assistance or drop off cat or dog food (dry or canned) during normal business hours.
