Franziska and her dog Jesse

Franziska and her dog Jesse

NARN board member, Franziska Edwards, became a vegetarian the day she adopted her first dog from a shelter in Italy. That dog made her realize that there was no important difference between him and any cow, pig or chicken. She just didn’t KNOW them as individuals. Her first daughter was seven-years-old at the time. Franziska explained why they were not going to eat meat anymore and her daughter was completely on board. It took another year of eating fish before she suddenly realized that in matters of suffering, fish are no different to cows, and she stopped eating seafood, too. Franziska has been a vegan for over 10 years and her three daughters are also  vegan/vegetarian. After spending 12 years in the South, in Texas, Franziska has now lived in Seattle for 14 years and loves it.  She has worked as an activist for 30 years, and worked in an animal shelter for ten, many of which were as a cruelty investigator.
