About Humane PA

      Pennsylvania’s Political Voice for Animals!

Welcome! Humane PA is the nonpartisan political arm of the animal protection movement in Pennsylvania, founded to give animals a political voice in Harrisburg.  It was formed after seeing the power of special interests to block anti-rosebudcruelty bills in Pennsylvania.  The number of animal lovers in Pennsylvania far dwarfs those who fight to keep cruel practices legal.  It is long past time for the animals to have their own powerful political action committee to level the playing field for good.

Humane PA is dedicated to electing candidates who demonstrate an understanding and a willingness to work to amend Pennsylvania laws with a goal of eliminating animal cruelty within the Commonwealth. When law makers stand up for animals, we must stand up for them.  

Humane PA also was formed for the caring citizens of Pennsylvania who want to help animals, but are daunted by the political process and want to make a difference and is a resource for all groups and individuals in Pennsylvania who care about animals. It is not affiliated with any one group but here for all.  As Pennsylvania’s political voice for animals, part of Humane PA’s  mission is to increase the engagement of the Pennsylvania animal community in public policy.

Although 501(c)(3) charitable organizations can, and should, lobby at all levels of government, nonprofits, because of their charitable status with the IRS, are legally prohibited from electioneering activity (supporting and opposing candidates). A political action committee (PAC) is therefore uniquely needed to build a body of humane-minded elected officials in Pennsylvania who will work to protect animals from neglect, cruelty and exploitation. All funds that Humane PA contributes to a legislator’s campaign come directly from the funds given to our PAC – from individuals just like you. Please join with us with this crucial effort.

We encourage everyone in Pennsylvania who cares about animals to get involved in the legislative process and get to know your legislators.  Your participation  is vital on behalf of animals since the more members we have, the  more influence we will have with Pennsylvania politicians.  Your donations of time and money are vital to our success.  Please join us – the animals need you to be their voice in Harrisburg.


Help strengthen the power of the animal vote by donating to Humane PA PAC!

    I don’t think that a tax credit is the way to go for pet owners. It opens up Pandora’s box for fraud. I’d rather see the removal of sales tax on pet food.

    Not that we need another tax to pay but keeping strays or any animal off the streets benefits EVERYONE, whether you are an animal-caring person or not. Everyone has to pay school taxes, whether you have children or not or have them in public schools or not, so everyone should have to pay an animal control tax, whether you have animals or not. Hopefully, it would be doled out to shelters across PA. Something has to be done & soon.

    There is a bill that has been sitting in Harrisburg for years presented by Rep. Farnesi from Philly. The bill says no dog can be out side between the hours of 10pm and 6am. Does anyone know where this bill is and what we can do about getting it passed? I would also like to see a bill prohibiting tethering of dogs.

    Years ago at a meeting at the Hughes Library in Stroudsburg I recommended a small annual tax for shelters and rescuers to help abandoned animals and stricter laws for people abandoning their animals and I nearly got lynched. Something needs to be done. Leaving animals outside in the cold weather is animal cruelty. Abandoning animals is animal cruelty. Animals should be considered a part of the family. Let’s get tough PA.
