St. Petersburg, Fla. – As people gear up to celebrate the Fourth of July and National Hot Dog Month, PETA is releasing its list of the Top 10 All-American Vegan Dogs of 2019 for revelers to enjoy at restaurants across the country over the holiday—and the Yo Soy Dog from all-vegan eatery Nah Dogs has nabbed a spot on the list. The award-winning hot dog is covered with corn salsa, dairy-free cheese sauce, jalapeños, and tortilla chip pieces.

“Meaty hot dogs are getting their buns kicked by creative vegan fare such as Nah Dogs’ spicy Yo Soy Dog,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “All the wieners of PETA’s national top 10 list are proving that compassion can be a delicious business.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview. The group notes that veggie dogs are lower in fat than traditional hot dogs and contain none of the cholesterol or cancer-causing agents found in their meat-based counterparts—and they spare animals immense suffering. In today’s meat industry, pigs spend their entire lives in cramped, filthy warehouses. Part of piglets’ tails is cut off, and males are castrated without pain relief. At slaughterhouses, the animals are strung up by one leg and their throats are slit, sometimes while they’re still conscious and able to feel pain. Every person who goes vegan saves the lives of nearly 200 animals every year.

Nah Dogs will receive a framed certificate. Other winners include the Coney Carrot Dog at Nosh Pit Detroit; the Crispy Cowboy at Phyto’s Vegan Eats in Las Vegas; the Banh Mi Dog from Fauxmaha Hot Dogs in Omaha, Nebraska; and the Chicago dog at Dirty Frank’s Hot Dog Palace in Columbus, Ohio. And of course, impressive vegan hot dog brands are widely available in grocery stores across the country. To view the complete list, please visit or click here.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
