Welcome to Voices for Animals

Voices coordinates a range of activities throughout the year. Our Community Cat Project (CCP) provides sterilizations and vaccinations for feral and unowned free-roaming cats in Central Virginia. Our Houses of Wood and Straw (HOWS) Project provides proper housing, straw bedding, and other comforts for neglected outdoor dogs. Voices for Animals also organizes tablings at community events, action alerts on a variety of animal protection issues, and pet food drives for the needy, doing all we can to create a better world for animals.

DR. WILL TUTTLE PRESENTS THE WORLD PEACE DIET

Please join us on Thursday, May 26th for a lecture presentation by Dr. Will Tuttle on The World Peace Diet. Dr. Tuttle’s lectures promote peace, compassion, and vegan living.

Thursday, May 26, 2016 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM

The Thomas Jefferson Memorial Church – Unitarian Universalist
The Scholarship Hall
717 Rugby Road
Charlottesville, VA 22903

A visionary educator, Dr. Tuttle is committed to raising awareness of the intersection of animal liberation with social justice, peace, health, spirituality, and environmental sustainability.

Will’s book, The World Peace Diet, which became a #1 Amazon best-seller in March, 2010, offers a compelling and liberating new understanding of our food and our culture. It has been called one of the most important books of the 21st century: the foundation of a new society based on the truth of the interconnectedness of all life.

Everyone is welcome and the event is free. All donations will go toward helping Will and his wife to spread the word.

We will offer vegan food and drinks from 6:30-7:00 PM and the lecture begins at 7:00 PM with a Q & A session after.

Voices for Animals is thrilled to be recognized by the Petco Foundation for our work to end cat homelessness in Central Va. The Petco Foundation recently awarded us a $2,500 grant to support our community cat spay/neuter program, through which more than 12,000 cats have been sterilized and vaccinated to date. This grant will enable Voices for Animals to expand our efforts to humanely manage outdoor cat populations while preventing the births of future homeless cats.
