Campaigns and Election update:

  • our humane candidates are kicking off their campaigns and have already begun asking not only for our volunteer support, but our financial support in order to win, a secret donor offered to match all donations this week. We’ve received a few donations, and because our secret donor is so impressed with our work that they have extended their match until Sunday evening and will triple any donations made – $5 becomes $15, $10 becomes $30, etc. Please help us continue our work to help elect humane legislators by donating today, no amount is too small
  • the Humane PA Candidate Survey is now available for any candidate who seeks our endorsement for the fall election, please forward the link to your candidate to be considered for endorsement
