Welcome to Our New Website
As you might have noticed, Compassionate Action for Animals has just launched a new website design. We think this site has a clean, simple design that will make it much easier for people to find the content they're interested in. The new website software we're using also makes it much easier for volunteers to edit and update the site, which makes us happy.
We'd like to thank Brita Bengtson, Ashley Flitter, Jeff Johnson, Matt Mackall, and Jake Nath for their help while we worked on this site. We'd also like to thank Cali Mastny for helping us refine the design from our initial rough prototypes.
We have migrated some of the content from our old site, but not all of it. We will transfer more content over in the future. If there's something you're really missing, please let us know so we can prioritize bringing to the new site. And of course, if you find broken links, images, or anything else broken, please tell us so we can fix it.
Annual Banquet 2014
Thu, Apr 3, 2014
Focusing on action, education, and outreach to inspire respect for animals, CAA touches hundreds of human lives and saves thousands of animal lives. Through the dedicated efforts of CAA volunteers, thousands of leaflets are distributed to increase awareness of the plight of factory farm animals, hundreds of individuals pledge to try vegetarianism, social gatherings are held to bring like-minded people together, and the annual Twin Cities Veg Fest inspires thousands to choose plant-based foods.
Most of us would like to think that the meat, milk, and eggs we buy come from animals who have lived happy, healthy lives. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Like cats and dogs, the animals we eat have complex emotions including the ability to suffer. Yet on modern farms, they are treated with such disregard that similar treatment to a cat or dog would be grounds for felony cruelty charges in Minnesota.
