      1 2 3 4* Four Paws Pet Store Protest at 1:00 pm
Four Paws Pet Store Protest
ARC is joining Bailing out Benji and Puppy Mill Free Minnesota for a peaceful protest against Four Paws and a Tail on public property near Northtown Mall, 398 Northtown Dr. NE, Blaine, Minnesota from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Meet at the intersection of County Rd 10 and Jefferson. We will stand in the grassy area in front of the Chipotle. Signs are provided or bring your own. We oppose Four Paws and a Tail\'s business model of buying companion animals from intensive breeding facilities and selling them to the public. We also oppose the idea that because a breeding facility is USDA licensed, it is humane or ethical. Note this is an ongoing event, ARC will post events for the protests we are re able to be present at, but for other dates, see the Bailing Out Benji Facebook events page. If possible, RSVP at MN Animal Rights Meetup: https://www.meetup.com/Minnesota-Animal-Rights-Meetup/

Pay Per View at Augsburg
We will be doing Virtual Reality Pay Per View outreach at Augsburg University in Minneapolis today. Pay Per View is an innovative form of outreach where people are offered $1.00 to view a short 3D film about the lives of animals used for food and then go home with information about how changing to a plant-based diet can make a huge difference for the animals, the earth, and themselves. This is a life-changing experience for many viewers.

7* Cuddle Coats Prep at Vol. Mtg. at 5:30 pm
* Dineout at Midori\'s at 6:30 pm
Cuddle Coats Prep at Vol. Mtg.
During this volunteer meeting and Cuddle Coats prep session we will be prepping donated fur coats and accessories for shipment to partner wildlife rehabilitation centers. This means removing all buttons, zippers etc., so feel free to bring a pair of sharp scissors or seam ripper (optional: we have several for people to use). Some people like to bring a lint roller for getting fur off their clothes at the end but please wear clothes that you can get a little dirty. This is a great opportunity for teens and mature kids to help out too, and is a low-key, low-commitment way to volunteer and meet other people in the group while doing something concrete to save animal lives. Vegan pizza and beverages will be provided at the end of the prep session. Location is ARC office (co-located with Ethique Nouveau), 317 W 48th St. in Minneapolis. Please register at Animal Rights Meetup: https://www.meetup.com/Minnesota-Animal-Rights-Meetup/
