In an effort to better communicate the conditions that shelter dogs face, animal activist Sean Le Vegan will live inside a kennel at England’s Manchester Dogs’ Home for 35 days.

“People thought I was crazy when I came up with the idea,” the 35-year-old told the UK Mirror. “It’s going to be really tough.”

Le Vegan will follow the exact same routine as the shelter dogs. For the first four days, he’ll eat nothing – mimicking the behavior of stressed out pups when they first arrived. He’ll only have one hour per day to relieve himself and will stay locked up from 5pm until 8am when staff at the shelter return.

According to MSN, Sean will share his digs with another dog, sleep on a blanket on the floor and has already been microchipped.

In an effort to raise money for the Manchester Dogs’ Home – founded in 1893 to help strays around the city – Sean will broadcast his 35-day campaign online via a live Kennel Cam with £5 subscriptions.

“It is a ­fantastic charity and has been doing this work for more than 100 years,” he said. “It is in need of cash to refurbish kennels and make it more secure from vandals and thieves. Every penny will go to them.”

Sean’s lockup starts October 5th. To throw support his way and learn more, jump here.

    wow – but it is the shelter employees who “don’t get it” who should be doing the experiment – not people who do “get it”…Good for you Sean and I hope it opens some folks eyes – but, alas, I doubt it well.

“Animal Cruelty” And Criminal Intent

Animal advocates need to be more aware of the realities surrounding these laws.

Jeremy Corbyn’s Vegan “Process”

When we reject human injustice, nobody needs to go on a “journey” to get to that point. Where animals are concerned, we’re all too eager to pack the car, don the sunglasses and go for ride before we see the truth of what has been in front of us the entire time.

Vegan Advocacy Ideas For The Arts

Creative education, in the context of social justice, simply means creating a mental space, a field of consciousness, from which the person feels stimulated to engage or hear what you have to say.
