...just don't eat them.
Animals are sentient beings, like us, that feel happiness, fear and pain. They don't want to die. So while a love of animals is a great motivator for going vegan, it shouldn't matter whether or not you like them. Respecting another's right to live should be enough. And since we can survive and thrive without animal products, there is no need to support this violent industry any longer. We can make a difference with our choices - choose veganism.
