PHOTOS: Café Entices Locals to Donate With 20-Pound Veggie Burger

FeelGoods Cafe in St. James rewards customers that donated to Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Center with a slice of the giant burger.

A giant veggie burger brought a crowd to FeelGoods Cafe in St. James on Saturday, but only certain people were able to have a piece.

The cafe used a 20-pound veggie burger, known at the cafe as "edgy burgers,"  to entice customers to donate to Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Center. Those who donated were offered a piece.

The shelter brought a maltese, pomeranian, shepherd-pitbull mix, and a lhasa apso to the event, all of them up for adoption.

Co-owner of the cafe Kathy Gerdes said that while this is the first fundraising event they've held for the shelter, they have a contribution box in the restaurant for customers to feed with donations.

Nicole Lawrence, co-owner of the cafe, said offering a slice of the veggie burger for every donation versus a meat product tied into a greater overall message of loving and caring for animals.

"You love animals and take care of animals just like Little Shelter does, we're trying to encourage people to do that with their food," said Lawrence.
