There are two new groups forming this summer for veg-interested people in Texas. The first is a social meet-up group for San Angelo vegetarian and vegan folks. It’s just forming, so this is an opportunity to have a big voice in shaping the group.
The second, Animal Rights and Rescue of North Texas, is a group focused on providing immediate care for animals in need in North Texas, both wild and domesticated. North Texan blogger Veganacious is one of the founders. Veganacious was inspired to create the group both because of increasing animal need due to the economy and also because of the bitter irony that most animal protection groups have activities that feature meat. (I had no idea Veganacious was Texan!) There’s an abolitionist bent to the group, but they say all people interested in helping animals are welcome. ARRNT has a meetup group and Facebook page.
Both of these groups have been added to our Veg Groups pages. As always, I’d love to hear about any new or existing veg groups in Texas. Drop me a line at lonestarplate (at) gmail (dot) com.
