BENEFITING: Space Coast Animal Rights Action Team Inc
Space Coast Animal Rights was formed in Melbourne, FL, with the mission to stand for Brevard County’s animals. Though we are a vegan-based group, we welcome everyone to our outreach events. Our philosophy is to promote our cause with positive reinforcement and education, straying from judgment and criticism. We want to teach locals about the cruelty behind certain practices that many are unaware of and the small changes that can be made to heavily benefit the animals.
Since our inception in 2014, we have had many major successes. Last December, we were offered a corporate grant from Lush Cosmetics to expand our efforts on our worldwide #NotJust4Easter Campaign, an initiative to urge patrons not to buy live animals as Easter gifts. The campaign sparked major media coverage and a spot on the cover of an online rabbit welfare magazine. In 2015, we were able to repeal a proposed bullriding festival in Cocoa Beach with heavy petitioning and media attention. We have educated thousands of people on various animal rights issues and
how they can make a real difference in the lives of these animals.
Though we are still a farily new organization, we are quickly growing and need funds to continue doing so. We have a goal of eventually opening up an "outreach center" at a local mall. The "outreach center" would offer information on various animal rights issues, activie petitions, vegan merchandise and more. We would also host adoption days weekly for local rescues and shelters. In addition, the space would also act as an office for administrative use. We believe that this "outreach center" would be a great opportunity to bring awareness to locals on a much higher level.
