I was completely overcome with canine- and feline-envy at ASPCA's annual celebration in New York City. A curse, a curse to my cat allergies, and a bigger curse to my apartment building's owner, which discriminates against dogs. Even though the clouds hovered, the rain held off for our four-legged friends and their two-legged guardians, and we partied the evening away.
A band entertained the crowd at Union Square. Free cotton candy! There was popcorn too. The cat-mobile had feline friends up for adoption. Dreaming of a forever home with a big picture window, a fleece blanket for long naps, and a big bowl of cat food. Do you know that saying about people resembling their dogs? Well... um, and...I kid, I kid. Cute! All the NYC-hipsters were donning the "it" color of the night, orange, the official color of the ASPCA. These ASPCA Day-goers enjoyed some time in the doggie run. Support the ASPCA. Become a member, and if you donate $25 or more, you will receive the quarterly ASPCA Action.
Give a gift membership of $25 or more and your recipient will get a membership card, an ASPCA calendar, an ASPCA Action subscription, and an ASPCA wristband.

This blog is for people of all dietary backgrounds. The Vegan Good Life is not The Vegan Perfect Life. I am not a pure vegan all the time (I do eat vegetarian always), and strive to do the best I can at pursuing a vegan lifestyle. Please feel free to come along on this flawed but beautiful journey. Along the way, we'll advocate for a better world for animals, reduce our impact on the Earth, travel, go thrifting, empower ourselves financially, learn, dream, inspire, listen to music, and celebrate one of life's greatest passions - food.
