Dec 5 12 - The Humane League Joins VegGuide

The Humane League is joining VegGuide as a partner, along with Compassionate Action for Animals, Compassion Over Killing, Farm Sanctuary, Mercy for Animals, and Vegan Outreach.

The Humane League was founded by Nick Cooney in 2005 and he still plays an integral part in the organization's efforts towards reducing animal suffering. Nick was a speaker at CAA's Their Lives, Our Voices conference in 2010 and wrote the book Change of Heart, an important piece of advocacy literature.

We are thrilled to be working with The Humane League on VegGuide.org. We will work with them to continue bringing you information on compassionate dining options no matter where you live, work, or travel.
