Day of Action Focused on Whole Foods: August 17
Attention Illinois rabbit homes...
we are gathering together to tell Whole Foods Market what rabbit lovers really think about Whole Foods’ decision to start selling rabbit meat in their stores.
We will be protesting at the Wheaton IL Whole Foods located at 151 Rice Lake Sq. Wheaton IL from 10-12:30pm.
We encourage everyone to come out and show support. We will have posters and flyers to hand out. Anyone that wants to make their own poster is welcome to do so. If you do please keep it not too graphic and the language appropriate, we do not want to deter people from our cause with foul language and images that will make people turn away. Instead we should try to get people to connect with us and ask them, “What if this was your pet?”
You can also make a poster using images and the template here:
For those that cannot attend or are not comfortable protesting and still want your voices heard, we encourage you to stop in your closest Whole Foods and fill out a Customer Communication card.
You can also email or call your local Whole Foods. When communicating please remember to be polite and courteous. The people that we are communicating with are just the messengers, and we have to remember they are not the ones that are the decision makers.
Anyone looking to attend in other areas please refer to the HRS page for locations and contacts in your region.
There is also a lot of information on the "humane" practices that Whole Foods uses for their meat production.

Feel free to print out this flyer.
