Here at peta2, we believe that it takes only one person to make a HUGE difference for animals. So, can you imagine what a handful of passionate animal lovers could do? The sky’s the limit! And the animal rights student group Cause for Paws at Fedde Middle School in Hawaiian Gardens, California, is proving just that.
Last week, Cause for Paws organized an animal rights talk and invited none other than PETA’s president, Ingrid E. Newkirk, to speak to its class—how freaking awesome is that?! The students learned about ways that they can help ALL animals and got a ton of free stickers and leaflets, and many pledged to go vegan! Oh, and of course, peta2’s Nugget tagged along and was super-popular with the students.
Check out these awesome pics from the event:
Students were shocked to see the ways in which chickens, pigs, cows, and other animals are killed for food!
Students rushed to the peta2 table after the event for tips on going vegan and to get free literature to help their friends and family make the connection!
And this isn’t the only thing Cause for Paws has done for animals—the group has animal rights bulletin boards and posters all over the school, and it even got the cafeteria to go meat-free on Mondays. Seriously, could it be any more awesome?!
It’s official: Cause for Paws rocks!
