Hollywood Writer Demands Vegan Dog Food at Shelters

Law & Order screenwriter hopes his proposal to feed dogs vegan kibble for optimal health is adopted by shelters across Los Angeles.

During a board meeting on November 28, Los Angeles Board of Animal Services Commissioner Roger Wolfson proposed that all animal shelters in Los Angeles switch to feeding dogs vegan food. Wolfson—who is also a screenwriter for Law & Order: SVU and a former speechwriter for politicians Ted Kennedy and John Kerry—proposed the plan after observing that the health of his two companion shelter dogs improved significantly on an animal-free diet. “Feeding dogs plant-based diets eliminates a huge host of health concerns, allergies, and cancers,” Wolfson said. Famed vegan journalist/animal-rights activist Jane Velez-Mitchell supported Wolfson’s proposal and believes the initiative could have a larger impact on the destructive animal agriculture industry. “We’re hitting the point of no return, and we’ve got to do something about it,” Velez-Mitchell said. “The truth is a lot of the meat is being consumed by other animals. It’s madness when you think about it.” A board meeting will be held at 7pm PST today in Los Angeles to discuss the proposal.
