Encourage people to switch to a vegetarian diet, PETA is setting lose its ‘Valentine Angel’

Bhubaneswar:13/2/18; Valentine’s Day is not just about expressing love, but also showing compassion and empathy towards fellow beings. To stop cruelty against animals and encourage people to switch to a vegetarian diet, PETA is setting lose its ‘Valentine Angel’ in Odisha capital on the eve of the Feast of St Valentine.

Dressed in the quintessential colour of love, complete with white wings, a member of PETA and Animal Welfare Trust Ekamra will give red roses to passersby at PMG Square on February 13 noon, holding a placard with the words, ‘Have a Heart: Go Vegan’.This is the first time that this Valentine Angel will descend upon the Odisha capital. Every year, this angel visits a city to spread the message of opting for a healthy, vegetarian diet.

PETA has been a pioneer in spreading kindness and stopping cruelty to animals over the years. It has resorted to unique and innovative methods for animal lovers on Valentine’s Day with love-themed e-cards, candies, chocolate boxes and temporary tattoos, to name a few.

It also organises campaigns and walks to dissuade people from using fur and leather products, apart from advocating animal rights.
