4. The animals lose a great advocate – In memory of David Hayden

The animals lost a great advocate in long time activist David Hayden. A kind, generous, determined and hard core activist, David was involved in various animal rights organizations, created the F.E.P. database, and helped with our new chocolate app among other things.

David, our hearts and our fight will never be the same.
