MFA Billboards Give Toledo Drivers Food for Thought

Toledo, Ohio drivers are being met with five newly erected pro-vegetarian Mercy For Animals billboards, featuring a puppy sitting next to a piglet, posing the question, "Why love one but eat the other?"

The thought-provoking ads are inspiring many residents to ditch meat, and even inspired one Toledo radio host to publically declare she is going vegetarian after the thought of "puppy bacon" made her realize the hypocrisy in calling some animals companions and others dinner.

Similar MFA ad campaigns have hit Chicago, New York City, Denver, Michigan, Boston, Las Vegas and Toronto.

A special "thank you" to Heather Gillen, MFA's Toledo Regional Coordinator, and local supporters, who worked to secure the ad space and raise the vital funds needed to support the billboard campaign.
