If you have to be picky about which protests you attend, pick this one from 1:00-3:00 pm at the Petland store at 2123 Old Hudson Road in St. Paul on Sunday, December 21. Help send a message loud and clear that we are not going away until Petland stops selling animals from commercial breeders. Even if you can only come for part of the protest, please try to make it. The animals need you to help educate the public on their behalf. Invite your friends. Help us spread the word. Remember that we do not park or trespass in the Petland parking lot. Parking is available in the St. Paul Youth Services lot to the north of the strip mall. at 1:00 pm

Challenging the Myth of Humane Animal Products
As the media pay increased attention to the abuses occurring at large-scale animal farming operations, consumers are seeking alternatives. Labels such as “Cage Free,” “Free Range,” “Humanely Certified,” and “Grass Fed” suggest that those willing to pay a higher price can enjoy eggs, dairy, and meat from small-scale “humane” farms that treat animals with compassion and respect. But is the public being misled?
ARC’s “Humane Farming Myth” brochure answers this question and is a great resource to share with family and friends. Preview the brochure and then contact ARC for copies to share with others. Here’s what Shannon Kimball of Bridges of Respect had to say about the brochure: “I’m a humane educator giving roughly 80 presentations a year to students ranging from grades six through college…ARC’s brochure, “The Humane Farming Myth”, is just what I was looking for! Finally, there is a comprehensible piece of literature to encompass a broader insight: That regardless of the label on the package animals are harmed when they are used for food. I want to make sure each student receives at least one.”
