INFORMATION / SAMPLE LETTER
(Use this information for talking points only; write a message in your own words!)
I am writing to you on behalf of United Poultry Concerns regarding your August 22nd fundraiser for Longmeadow Rescue Ranch. I respectfully urge you to serve an animal friendly meal of compassion for all animals, instead of serving dead animals to raise money for the animals at your Longmeadow Rescue Ranch facility.
Longmeadow Rescue Ranch’s rescue and rehabilitation of abused animals is wonderful; but using other abused animals as bait to fund this enterprise does nothing to arrest the cruelty that chickens, cows, pigs and other farmed animals are forced to endure to feed people’s thoughtless eating habits. It ensures that the cruelty will continue in a never-ending spiral of miniscule rescue and massive abuse.
It must also be mentioned in this regard that our planet, as you know, is suffering hugely from the human consumption of animals and animal products. The suffering of defenseless animals imprisoned in filthy dark buildings, the deterioration of our planet to which animal confinement operations are major contributors, and the myriad and expensive health problems of people gorging on dead flesh - no humane society should be facilitating these bad things.
I urge you, in conclusion, to discontinue your inhumane dinners and adopt a Compassionate Meals Only Policy as an integral part of your humane work for animals. There are thousands of humane recipes to choose from on the Internet, in bookstores, from animal rights organizations, vegetarian societies, and compassionate chefs. There is no justification, whatsoever anymore, for claiming a lack of good recipes as an excuse to be cruel to animals in meal planning. It is incumbent upon a humane society to set an example by treating all animals with respect and teaching this respect to others. In today’s world, this is easy and requires only a little bit of courage and creativity in order to do it.
Thank you for your attention. I look forward to your response.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
