Vegan bake sale for UVic rabbits
Category : Uncategorized
Liberation BC organized a vegan bake sale after UVic announced that it will give activists until the end of July to rescue all the campus rabbits before starting a mass cull.
The bake sale took place at 3G Vegetarian Restaurant last night. We received three $1000 matching donations from individual donors and a donation of 20% of dinner proceeds from the restaurant. In total, we collected $8,314.52 from the bake sale. All proceeds will go to support the efforts of EARS in spaying, neutering and relocating the rabbits to safe sanctuary.
Thanks to a large donation of $50,000 from Fur Bearer Defenders and additional donations from various individuals ranging in the tens of thousands, there is now enough funds to save all of the UVic rabbits. The only hope now is that the University can halt their plans for a mass cull until the rabbit relocation details can be sorted out.
A huge thank you goes out to our volunteers, bakers, supporters, donors and corporate sponsors: 3G, EIO Kids Store, Organic Lives, Edible Flours & Gorilla Food. We could not have had a successful fundraiser without any of you!
