Bailey - Why do Rescue People Hold Fundraisers at Burger Joints?

This is for Bailey, since Bailey is into animal rescue, I thought I'd pose a question. This really baffles me. I get my mail from one of the veggie email groups I'm on and there is a post from a rescue group, announcing that they will be at a fast food burger joint (one of the big chains) holding a fundraiser. They asked the vegetarian group to stop by eat fast food burgers and give them their receipts so the burger joint would donate a portion of the proceeds to the rescue. HELLO. Posting to a veggie group. That being said -

It seems that many animal rescue people eat meat, hold fundraisers where meat is served and one group even had veal as a menu choice for their banquet. Why? Do these people realize that dogs and cats are animals? The dog and cat that they save in the US is someone in another part of the world's cow. Do they really think there is some difference between a dog, a cat, a cow or a pig? Hell pigs have higher IQ's than most people. Please explain this to me. Sign me confused in Michigan.

I think it goes back to the focus of rescue groups, they only see the dog/cat in front of them. Few think about rescue in a strategic sense, much less a broader prescriptive in the world. Few give any thought as to why a pig/cow is any different than a cat or dog. The only difference is we were brought up to eat pigs and not dogs.

Some people can't see anything beyond their own world and it leads them to be very short sighted. I think this also the reaon that most rescues running around saving everything in sight, but don't spay/neuter the pets before the animal goes into a home. So, you saved one animal but if that cat/dog has babies, you've just created another 50 for us in the rescue world to potentially deal with. It is a shame.
