Animal Advocacy

Chelsea Eng has been a vegetarian for nearly 30 years and is a longtime animal advocate. From 2016-2019 she volunteered weekly as a co-caretaker (with a small group called Team Rabbit) of Mocha and Hobo, 2 beloved bunnies who lived at a senior assisted living facility in the Bay Area. Since 2016 she has made 4 volunteer visits to Best Friends Animal Society's animal sanctuary in Kanab, Utah, volunteered for 2 Best Friends Strut Your Mutt events in San Francisco, volunteered at the Best Friends SoHo Center in New York City, and attended the 2017 Best Friends National Conference in Atlantic City, New Jersey - joining the "Save Them All" movement to get the U.S. to No-Kill for cats and dogs by 2025. In 2018 she served as an Outreach Ambassador for NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles), a Best Friends Animal Society Initiative, at the 1st International Tango Summit/Los Angeles. In 2019 she will again serve as an Outreach Ambassador for NKLA at the International Tango Summit/Los Angeles. 

$5 from each private lesson taught by Chelsea is donated to animal rescue/advocacy-related efforts &/or helps fund her volunteering trips to Best Friends Animal Society's animal sanctuary in Kanab, Utah (4th trip was in June 2019)
