& Appreciation Fund
The pain of losing them is the price we pay for the privilege of knowing them and sharing their lives . . .
We thank those people who have contributed to our work with recent donations In Loving Memory and in Honor and Appreciation of the following
beloved family members and friends, both those who have passed away and those who are with us.

Dixie, my angel. – Roberta Beauchamp

My donation is in memory of Ann, the “spent” hen in the Butterfield slaughterhouse video by The Humane Society of the United States, and all
spent hens who die a horrific and inhumane death needlessly.

In loving memory of our dear boy, Buddy. You came to us from a background we knew little about. Only that your face was scarred and you were nervous. You
came to be the most joyous being. Missing your dog dances, your exuberance and love for your family. Watching you cuddle with your “sister,”
Nina. You were with us only a year and 3 months, when we were hoping for a lifetime. But now you are free and at peace and thankfully your suffering
wasn’t long. Love you forever, sweet boy. For all the animals, Michael and Dianne Bahr
In honor of the good work going on for the animals.

Norm Phelps speaks at UPC's conference in Machipongo,
VA on Direct Action for Animals, June 26-27, 1999.
In memory of animal rights advocate Norm Phelps. I first met Norm and his wife Patti Rogers in the 1980s in a van at around 4am taking us to a hunt
sabotage in Maryland. We remained good friends despite some philosophical disagreements. Norm spoke at UPC’s first annual conference on Direct Action
for Animals June 26-27, 1999, which introduced the concept of Open Rescues to U.S. activists. Norm’s books The Longest Struggle and The Dominion of Love are permanent contributions to the Animal Rights Movement. In The Longest Struggle, Norm wrote “Thanks to
Karen Davis, chickens and turkeys are now front-and-center on the animal rights agenda.” Norm and Patti have been wonderful friends to United Poultry
Concerns, and Norm will be deeply missed.
– Karen Davis
My donation is in loving memory of Noel, my handsome Siamese boy. You came for Christmas and made it especially happy for me. I miss your lively chatter
