What draws you to an animal rights group? (answer as simply or as detailed as you like)

I'd like to be a part of an organization that brings the truth out to the larger population without being militant or hateful.

What, to you, is the biggest issue concerning animals?

That's tough. I guess factory farming is the biggest issue, but almost all farming is a concern to me. I don't see how treating an animal well while you raise it to be your food is totally okay. Killing is still killing. I try to open people's minds to that idea without judging them or making them defensive - we're all animals, and abusing each other is no better than abusing livestock. I'm also really concerned about pet mills and overpopulation of pets.

Please list any specific types of demonstrations or activities you might be interested in and participate in, if hosted by this group? Thanks!

Adoption days for shelter animals, foster program sign-ups, movie screenings... You probably already do a lot of these things...

NOTE: We only require a "YES" RSVP if you plan to attend a gathering. Please don't RSVP "NO" to gatherings you don't plan to attend. "NO" RSVPs only create email for organizers. Only RSVP "NO" when you need to cancel a "YES". Make sense? Thanks!
