There are animal welfare vegans and animal only-fight-against-other-vegans abolitionist vegans. V-EGANISM is neither. Just as there are positive things and negative things about conservatives and liberals, there are positive things and negative things about welfarists and abolitionists. V-EGANISM avoids all 4 "political parties", and remains as an independent in thoughts and actions, only choosing what is right and just for animals, humans, and the environment. V-EGANISM however does have a mission statement which is how the founder of veganism, Donald Watson, originally coined the word's definition. It was a perfect definition then and it still is a perfect definition now! So the following paragraph is V-EGANISM's official Mission Statement--and nothing more, nothing less, we are simply called, "Vegan Activists", with no additives:

"V-EGANISM educates people and helps people and animals regarding the political and social justice cause, Veganism, which is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude--as far as is possible and practical--all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, cosmetics, household products, entertainment, service or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals, and the environment."

Year of the Dog


 WARNING: My short synopsis (in green) of the film, Year of the Dog, may contain spoilers!

Peggy and her dog beagle, Pencil, are inseparable companions. They sleep together, eat together, do everything together. Life is uncomplicated and safe, and Peggy is happily entrenched in a satisfying relationship with her beloved pet. 

But Peggy’s world comes crashing down when Pencil meets a mysterious death. Peggy now desperately seeks to fill the gaping void of love that was found with Pencil. She fills that gap by working to get animals adopted, then later she becomes a vegan and animal rights activist.

Year of the Dog (2007) is not as good as Bold Native (I've updated my review on Bold Native today), but it is a sweet animal rights film that definitely makes people aware of the suffering of animals in the world and what you can do actively about it. This film is rated PG-13 (contains some graphic photos of animal suffering), which makes it a better age appropriate animal rights film for kids to see than Bold Native--which is rated R.
