Animal Planet's "A Pet Story" featured 2 people, both wearing shirts that clearly state 'Vegan' on them, that saved 2 ducks from a place that raised ducks in an incredably disgusting environment. The ducks were suffering from crippling deformaties and these people, with help from a veteranarian helped them through physical therapy and found them a new home in which they were allowed to swim, bathe, flap their wings, and be happy.<br><br><br><br>
The guy also wore a shirt that had <a href="http://www.tryveg.com" target="_blank">www.tryveg.com</a> on it.<br><br><br><br>
This made me sooo excited.. just imagine all of the people who watched that show and decided to check out the site on his shirt! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"> Woohoo for good publicity.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I like the Compassion Over Killing organization. They offer these cool restaurant cards you can give places encouraging them to offer vegan meals (and heir dog paw t-shirt is great).<br><br><br><br>
It's great that their tryveg.com site got the publicity - I hope they get many more hits.

Hey! I saw that episode too! It was on yesterday at my house. I was so excited when I saw it too. They seemed so kind, and I think it was such a great idea to wear their shirts like that to get the message out! I felt bad for the ducks, but I was so happy that they got to live in that nice little pond together. Those conditions were just horrible for those ducks. I felt the urge to save some animals from a factory farm too, but I imagine that it would be very emotionally and financially struggling.<br><br><br><br>

I love COK too. They are a really great org. I think of them as a much lessar degree of PETA. They are definitely one of my favorite organizations, because they do such positive work, and their site is very helpful. At a vegan bakery in DC called Sticky Fingers, I saw a sign on the front from COK saying that the bakery was approved by them. It was very cool.
