Anthro New England 2020 is a furry convention scheduled to take place at the Boston Park Plaza in Boston, Massachusetts, USA over February 20-23, 2020.[1]

Charity[edit]

ANE's support of its historic charity Massachusetts Vest-a-Dog became controversial in September 2019 after allegations of police brutality relating to protesters of a straight pride parade in Boston brought their indirect support of the police into question.[2][3] The convention decided to drop Vest-a-Dog for 2020, to be replaced with another animal-related charity yet to be determined.[4] In addition, half the funds raised are to go to the ALS Association in rememberance of Dogbomb,[5] a cause suggested in a response to their first letter.[5] According to the convention, their previous plans were to support the ALS Association in combination with Vest-a-Dog for 2020 and to consider another animal charity for 2021,[5] although this had not been announced on the charity page at the time (which solely covered Vest-a-Dog).[6]
