Target: Lisa and Linsey Paul, owners of Bread and Butterflies
Goal: Stop serving bacon and other cruelly-obtained animal products, especially when fundraising for animals.
A café generously organized a fundraiser for a local animal shelter, however their menu still features products obtained from harming and killing animals. Lisa and Linsey Paul, the owners of the Bread and Butterflies café, organized a fundraiser for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSCPA), with the £120 raised (about $170 U.S.) donated to the local RSCPA dog shelter.
While this is a wonderful incentive and one beneficial to dogs and cats, it is a shame that Bread and Butterflies continues to serve meat, dairy and egg products–all obtained from confining, mistreating and slaughtering animals. Bacon rolls, one item reportedly sold by the café, is made from pigs who are raised in cramped and distressing conditions, painfully mutilated—they have their tails sliced off and their teeth pulled out—and slaughtered for their meat. Yet these animals are as smart, playful and affectionate as dogs.
The café reportedly already serves a number of veggie options. It would therefore be simple for it to transition to a fully cruelty-free menu. Sign this petition urging this café to expand its good work for animals by transitioning to a fully vegan menu.
Dear Mses. Paul,
While raising money for the RSPCA is commendable and generous, it is a shame that your café still sells products obtained from confining, mistreating and slaughtering animals. Meat, dairy and egg products all include tremendous suffering for the animals from which they are obtained. Bacon, for instance, comes from pigs who are raised in cramped and distressing conditions. They are painfully mutilated, their tails sliced off and their teeth pulled out, before being slaughtered for their meat.
I sincerely thank you for your great work for dogs and urge you to extend it to all animals. Please consider replacing your café’s animal products with cruelty-free vegan items in order to ensure you are doing all you can to help all animals.
