A dish described by the restaurant as "vegetarian" being served at the SPCA fundraiser contains goat cheese, but a goat is not a vegetable and a dish containing goat cheese is not vegetarian. Goats suffer the same excrutiating pain and cruelty as do all factory farmed animals:
PETA: 'Kid goats may be boiled alive to make gloves, and the skins of unborn calves and lambs—some purposely aborted, others from slaughtered pregnant cows and ewes—are considered especially “luxurious.”' (http://www.peta.org/issues/Animals-Used-for-Clothing/leather-animals-abused-and-killed-for-their-skins.aspx)
The production of meat almost always contains far more cruelty than is thought. But it is up to an animal welfare organization to think of animals not of money.
