Please join us in welcoming Armaiti May during her tour stop in Orlando. Please invite your meat eating friends,family, and vets! to hear her talk about why we call some animals pets and others dinner.

Armaiti May, DVM has volunteered as an animal rights advocate for the past decade. A 2005 graduate of UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, Armaiti helped coordinate a surgery training wetlab using ethical-source cadavers from ...a willed body donation program as an alternative to the school’s terminal surgeries, which were subsequently replaced with humane surgical training. Before attending veterinary school, as a UC Berkeley student Armaiti successfully campaigned the dorm cafeterias to improve the vegan options and put on several vegan food giveaway events such as MEATOUT. Armaiti currently organizes a Los Angeles based animal rights meetup group which does regular vegan outreach leafletting. Dr. May is house call veterinarian for dogs and cats in the Los Angeles area and she plans to have her own vegan-friendly integrative veterinary practice that incorporates animal advocacy into the practice.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
