Time: 10:00 am
Join us at our Fourth Annual Vegan Waffle Party - yes, that time of year when the waffles are piping hot and the toppings seemingly endless. This delicious waffle brunch goes from 10am until 11:30am at the Fuller Park building located at 4800 Grand Ave. S (the corner of 48th St. W and Grand Ave. S). All you need to do is bring one tasty topping to share. Soy vanilla ice cream anyone. Peanut butter and banana. What about some bee-free honey with cinnamon. Whatever you bring should be 100 percent vegan, and all ingredients listed on the packaging or on a note card. Bring your own reusable plate and utensils. The event is free and Fuller Park has a playground and a field perfect for tossing a frisbee. And you are only a stones throw from Ethique Nouveau, the only 100% vegan store in Minnesota, at 317 W 48th St. So after a delicious waffle brunch, stop by Ethique Nouveau where we will be sampling the newest vegan ice cream option, LUV NICE CREAM starting at 11:00am.

Join Us on Fur Free Friday
Join us in protesting Ribnick Fur and Leather, 224 N 1st Street in Minneapolis, on Fur Free Friday, November 23 from 11am to 1pm. If you agree that the fur industry is cruel and unnecessary, we want you there!
New this year will be anti-fur caroling, with a short, on-the-street rehearsal for those who want to sing during the event. Lyrics will be provided on site, so come ready to sing. You can make a personalized sign if you’d like, but we’ll also have signs and literature available, so feel free to just show up.
If you’re still wearing fur coats and fur-lined hats and gloves, did you know that through our Cuddle Coats program those fashion faux pas can be donated to ARC for a tax deduction? Donated furs offer comfort to orphaned, injured, and abused wild animals and aid them in their recovery at our 14 partner wildlife rehabilitation organizations.
The coyotes pictured enjoy snuggling up in Cuddle Coats donated to a wildlife rehab facility in Nebraska, which says the furs are a more natural alternative to using cloth, which may smell like detergent. “The Cuddle Coats are useful for orphaned animals. They seem to like snuggling into a fur as opposed to a blanket or other items we may use.”
Several local thrift stores are dropoff locations for furs and carry our Cuddle Coats brochure, educating the public about the cruelty of the fur industry. Furs can also be dropped at the ARC office or mailed to us. Let’s make the best of a bad situation for the animals. Please help us spread the word that a cruel fashion statement can at least benefit wild animals in need.
