Californians Are Pushing To Make Dog Food In Shelters Vegan

By Aimee Lutkin

The Los Angeles City Board of Animal Services Commissioner is considering a proposal from vegan animal lovers in regards to the city's many animal shelters. Advocates like lawyer Lisa Bloom and musician Moby are urging the city to make all the meals consumed by dogs in shelters completely vegan, The Washington Post reports.

“If we adopt this, it’s one more thing that proves to the world that Los Angeles really is the progressive capital,” Moby told the board during the testimony on November 28.

As with human diets, the wisdom of eradicating all animal products from a dog's diet is widely contested.
