I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls.
They always say because it's such a beautiful animal.
Well, I think my mother is attractive, but I just keep photographs of her.

Last Chance for Animals (LCA), San Diego
LCA San Diego is an all-volunteer chapter of the non-profit organization Last Chance for Animals. Our mission is to educate the
public about animal rights issues and to promote a cruelty-free vegan lifestyle. Since we started our chapter in 1993, our main
activity has been to bring our information booth to street fairs and other events around San Diego County.
LCA San Diego has hosted many special guest speakers, including Karen Davis, George Eisman, Michael Greger, Erik Marcus,
Janice Stanger, and Will Tuttle and has protested/leafleted at locations such as:
- Ringling Bros. and other circuses (due to ongoing and extreme animal cruelty; www.circuses.com).
- March of Dimes WalkAmerica (in opposition to their funding cruel and unethical animal experiments; www.reformthemarchofdimes.org).
- The Canadian Embassy (against their annual baby seal slaughter; www.harpseals.org).
