Sporty Dog Creations—owned by mother-daughter duo LaShauna Jones and Daejonne Bennett—can swap a vegan dog into almost any of its mouthwatering menu offerings, from the Pineapple Express Dog with grilled pineapples, carrots, and caramelized onions to the Baltimore Black Sox Dog loaded with black-eyed pea chili. The award-winning Vegan Buffalo Blu is a fan favorite vegan dog topped with Buffalo jackfruit, caramelized onions, and vegan blu cheese.
“The Vegan Buffalo Blu is a hot and tangy twist on a summertime classic and the perfect animal-friendly answer to any comfort food craving,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “All the award wieners on PETA’s national Top 10 list prove that compassion is a delicious business.”
Sporty Dog Creations will receive a framed certificate from PETA in honor of its culinary achievement. The other top dogs receiving the group’s recognition are the Rad Dawg at Totally Awesome Vegan Food Truck (Portland, Maine), the Scarecrow at The Frankenstand (Los Angeles), the Bahn Me Dawg at Pingala Cafe (Burlington, Vermont), the Big Daddy Special at Kale My Name (Chicago), the Vegan Italian Warsaw at The Wienery (Minneapolis), the Coney Dog at VEG-N (Lansing, Michigan), the Chicago Hot at Doggystyle (Sarasota, Florida), the Vegan at Wiener Kitchen (Overland Park, Kansas), and the Vegan Chilly Cheez Dawg at Chilly Dawgz (Thomasville, Pennsylvania).
In addition to saving nearly 200 animals every year, each person who goes vegan reduces their own risk of suffering from heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and cancer and shrinks their carbon footprint.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview, and offers a free vegan starter kit on its website. For more information, please visit PETA.org, listen to The PETA Podcast, or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
