Heifers for the Holidays

Last week I received "the most important gift catalog in the world" from Heifer International. It is an organization that takes donations and turns them into livestock for people all over the world in dire straits. It seems to be a very good idea. What helps is that they aren't just giving animals, they are training the people to keep the animals healthy and productive.

That's really cool. I hadn't heard of that before.

Is there a vegetarian catalogue?

I think the animals are usually to be used for their non-flesh properties--milk, wool, plow-pulling ability, honey. They do mention when describing the abilities of a trio of rabbits to help a Korean family that they provide protein, but also they tell how the Koreans can use the "manure" for fertilizer.
