Sarasota, Fla. – PETA scoured the country for the Top 10 Vegan Dogs that kick meaty dogs’ buns—and the Gulf Coast’s own Doggystyle has won a top spot for its deliciously craveable vegan dog, the Chicago Hot.

Doggystyle—owned by Steve DiBartolomeo and Melissa Penry—offers customers the option to build their own scrumptious vegan dog with a wide array of topping choices, including hot pepper relish, sauerkraut, red onion sauce, and sport peppers. The award-winning Chicago Hot is a fan-favorite Field Roast vegan dog topped with hot pepper relish, yellow mustard, red onion, diced pickle, diced tomato, a sport pepper, and celery salt.

“The Chicago Hot brings the heat to a summertime classic and is 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.”

Doggystyle 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 Café (Burlington, Vermont), the Big Daddy Special at Kale My Name (Chicago), the Vegan Buffalo Blu at Sporty Dog Creations (Baltimore), the Vegan Italian Warsaw at The Wienery (Minneapolis), the Coney Dog at VEG-N (Lansing, Michigan), 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.
