Veggie Dog Month

Vegans across the US gear up to celebrate Independence Day with National Veggie Hot Dog Month.

July marks the kick-off of the fifth annual National Veggie Hot Dog Month, a vegan holiday founded by animal rights group Compassion Over Killing as a cruelty-free counterpart to National Hot Dog Month, created by the meat industry. In addition to Fourth of July barbecues and picnics, veggie dog events are being scheduled across the country throughout July, ranging from classic eating contests to community-wide vegan barbecues. In addition to celebrating compassionate cookouts, July is also a great month to visit local animal sanctuaries, with summer events held all season. Tomorrow, sanctuaries Animal Acres and Farm Sanctuary will each hold their respective, annual Pignic events, celebrating the independence of farm animals with sanctuary tours, vegan food, and outdoor fun.
