Do you have any Companion Animals?

Five dogs one cat, all from the pound or off the street.

Tell us a little bit about yourself!

I am a Librarian, I was married to John Haley (on skis!) during a light snowfall in Winter Park Colorado. I rescued dogs and cats from the Oak Cliff Pound for over four years, and helped out at the staging grounds for a huge puppy mill bust in Kaufman Tx, with HSUS. I am originally from New Jersey and went to college in Michigan and New York City.

How do you define your lifestyle? (eg. vegan, vegetarian, omnivore, etc.)


What interests you in a vegan diet?

I am Vegan for the animals first, and good health comes as a bonus! I was a Vegetarian for 11 years and I finally opened my eyes to the tragedy of egg-laying hens and dairy cows, and I KNEW I had to switch to a VEGAN lifestyle. Seeing cute little baby-boy chicks being ground up alive was the tipping point. I was pleased that it turned out to be relatively easy to switch, and that I lost a few pounds too! I have also made some incredible friends!


Lisa (aka Ilise) Lipton---Vegan for two years, Veggie for 11+ yrs Active with Mercy For Animals and Texas State Veggie Fair. I THOUGHT I was already a member...but ...I guess not ???
