HUMANE ACTION Pittsburgh is proud to highlight our Compassionate Events Partners who have committed to keeping meat off their menus at fundraisers and other events. Please click on the photos to learn about our recent Partners of the Month.
September 2019: Formed in 1954, The Humane Society of the United States is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to resolving a full range of animal welfare issues, including those involving factory farming, animal blood sports, the fur trade, puppy mills, and wildlife abuse. We are proud to have them as a partner and are thankful for their commitment to have compassionate events. Thank you for all you do, HSUS!
July 2019: Pittsburgh Vegan Association raises awareness of veganism via creative education, nonviolent advocacy, and social connection in the Greater Pittsburgh Area. In fact, HAP is even co-hosting our "A Prayer for Compassion" movie screening in September with PVA! Thank you to PVA for always having compassion for ALL animals. For more information, visit them at pavegan.org!
May 2019: CompassionWorks International advocates for all animals, including those held captive by the entertainment industry, used for medical testing, and slaughtered for fur, skin, and meat. In addition to being one of HAP's Gold Compassionate Events Partners (meaning all their events are 100% vegan), CWI provided crucial research assistance to HAP in regards to our work to protect circus animals and pass Pennsylvania's first three laws protecting exotic animals. Please follow CWI's work and thank them for all that they do! https://www.cwint.org/
April 2019: Hello Bully is a Pit Bull rescue, but also so much more. They rescue, rehabilitate, and repair the reputation of the American Pit Bull Terrier, while also providing assistance to all companion animals in under-served communities with a goal of reducing overpopulation and preserving the human-animal bond. Hello Bully is a Bronze Compassionate Events partner, meaning they serve only vegetarian food at their events, as they understand it is contradictory to raise money for one animal while supporting the suffering of another. Daisy Wise, President and Founder of Hello Bully, even won Humane Action Pittsburgh's 2017 Compassionate Living award for her groundbreaking decision to go meat-free at their events! Please remember to thank Hello Bully, not only for their commitment to dogs, but animals everywhere! http://www.hellobully.com/
March 2019: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) focuses their attention on animals that suffer the most for intensely long periods of time: in laboratories, in the food industry, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. They work through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, and legislation. Thanks to PETA for always hosting cruelty-free events and spreading the message that ALL animals deserve our stewardship. https://www.peta.org/
February 2019: Jewish Veg is a national organization that encourages and helps Jews to embrace plant-based diets as an expression of the Jewish values of compassion for animals, concern for health, and care for the environment. Thank you to Jewish Veg for always having compassionate events and working so hard for the well-being of all animals! www.jewishveg.org
January 2019: Hope Haven Farm Sanctuary, a Gold Partner of our Compassionate Events campaign, is an all-vegan organization with the mission to rescue neglected farm animals and allow them to live out their lives with comfortable housing, nutritious food, and companionship. Hope Haven also raises public awareness about the plight of animals raised for food. Rather than focusing on the horrors of factory farming, they showcase the individual and unique personalities of farm animals! They hope that when people realize these animals are sentient and deserve compassion, they'll adopt a cruelty-free lifestyle, which is something we certainly advocate for here at HAP! To find out more, please visit www.hopehavenfarm.org/. Thanks for all you do Hope Haven! Keep up the good work!
December 2018: With a mission to create a collaborative working relationship between Pittsburgh business owners and the local vegan community in order to increase the visibility and accessibility of vegan dining options, Vegan Pittsburgh makes plant-based eating so easy! HAP's first Compassionate Events Partner, you can find Vegan Pittsburgh at www.veganpittsburgh.org, or on Facebook and Instagram! Make sure to like and follow them to keep up on all their partners and events. Thanks for making compassionate eating so easy Vegan Pittsburgh!
