Thanksgiving Is Execution Time for Millions of Animals

One of the biggest non-religious holidays, bringing together many families, continues to be the day for which millions of animals will be slaughtered. Sadly, the tradition of feasting on a bird’s carcass remains in place, even though vegetarianism and veganism are on the rise. There actually are many vegetarians and vegans who make an exception to their diet just so they do not have to stand up against the criticism of the carnivores surrounding them.

But it is actually easy to stick to a plant based diet during these feast days. Many dishes served “on the side” can be either made without any animal parts or are vegan anyway. You can find anything from vegan stuffing to fake turkey and vegan pumpkin pie in most grocery stores around the country.

So there is no need to worry. If you are invited to a carnivorous Thanksgiving dinner just bring some of those delicious foods along. The only thing to worry about is to bring enough to share.

And if you want to save some animals from execution please support sanctuaries that take care of these beings.
