COK Takes on Dunkin’

The animal-rights group is challenging the doughnut mecca to make doughnuts vegan.

As the slogan says, “America runs on Dunkin’.” Compassion Over Killing, a Washington, DC-based animal advocacy organization, recognizes that, and thinks America needs to run on Dunkin’ Donuts, veganized. With an estimated 6,400 stores in the US alone, Dunkin’ is providing everyone with plenty of egg- and milk-laden dough. Little do consumers know that the eggs in all 52 varieties of doughnuts come from hens in factory farms, where living space for animals is minimal and harmful. COK is pushing Dunkin’ to revamp its menu and supply vegan options for the masses. Join the Dunkin’ Cruelty campaign by heading to COK’s site and contacting Dunkin’ headquarters. Doughn’t delicious, sweet, ethical doughnuts sound like the kind of fuel on which Americans should run?
