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 voice in Harrisburg. It was formed after seeing the power of special interests to block anti-cruelty bills in Pennsylvania. Humane PA supports candidates from all parties based on a single criterion: their support and leadership for furthering animal protection bills in the legislature. It was also formed for the caring citizens of Pennsylvania who want to help animals, but are daunted by the political process of how to make a difference.
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 is also dedicated to encouraging everyone who cares about animals to get political for animals and is a resource for all groups and individuals in Pennsylvania who care about animals.
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.
