Thank you SERRV!
Thank you to Madison based SERRV for supporting Alliance for Animals at their Fall Fashion Show on August 23, 2018. All featured fashions were vegan – no silk, no wool, no leather – and beautiful which proved we do not have to wear the skins or products of animals to look marvelous. SERRV donated a portion of all sales to AFA. It was a great night. Be sure you stop by SERRV at 224 State Street and thank them for supporting the animals!

Will Your Child Be Dissecting in School This Year?
Should students be forced to dissect animals in school? Unfortunately, Wisconsin has no current language pertaining to dissection in grades K-12 in the state statutes. Here in Wisconsin our student population includes a variety of cultures with diverse religious, moral, or ethical beliefs regarding animals, and many students at all levels are uncomfortable with dissecting.
Therefore educators must clearly convey the message to parents that students need not compromise personal beliefs in order to learn science.
Dissecting is not only disrespectful to animals, it also drains school budgets, and is not as effective as using computerized models in learning about the anatomy and physiology of animals and humans. Want to help make a change? Email us at email@example.com. Read more here.
Our summer issue contains information about the 126 geese who were killed by the Madison Park District. Despite our efforts and willingness to help, the geese were rounded up and killed.
Also read about our dedicated volunteers, and a bit of good news about a pig wrestling event that has been canceled (and we’ll take some credit for that!).
