About our leadership

Humane PA is led by a professional, dedicated, volunteer team of animal advocates and political advisors  who are deeply involved in Pennsylvania politics and who believe that to be an effective force for preventing cruelty to animals, we need to not only impact public policy, but to also elect and support legislators who will lead and support anti-cruelty bills in Pennsylvania. We work consistently and pragmatically with legislators to give animals a political voice and vote in Pennsylvania.

    Could someone comment on why me representative for Montgomery county, Mary Jo Daley (D) is not included on Humane PA’s current animal welfare bills/votes list? In all fairness to her, I recently received a letter outlining her support, all favorable. Thank you for your follow-up.

    Good catch Carolyn! It looks like she was cut off at the bottom of the page. We will get that fixed. Thanks for paying such close attention.

    I would like to know why Animal Shelters that are kill shelters get paid for each animal they euthanize .this seems that it would just give more incentive to kill.i would like to understand the reasoning behind this. I also know as an ex humane officer they are very well paid by several townships for there services on yearly contracts.so they are funded not only by loads of donations.they also get most of there pet food for free from several warehouse in the surrounding areas. the animal laws are sad. There are a few great organization ,but granted behind close doors it’s much worse than you think .the power hungry .managers board members and kennel workers are not there for the animals for the most part. I could tell some stories in my 8 yrs of service that would make your hair stand up on the back of your neck. I plan on coming out with these stories to try to change some laws. Yes I was fired at one job for rescuing a small dog abandoned for a week,with no food water or shelter without a warrant .the dog would have died otherwise .I quit the other because I caught a worker abusing puppies several times and my superiors wouldn’t, fire him because he didn’t,t mind euthanizing the animals.he was a real loser with no heart. I,ve lived with these things for a while now in agony and have decided to fight back..I hope to find the support I need. Thanks for listening ,and maybe you can answer my earlier questions. Sincerely. Yours

    wow sorry to hear you have had such a bad experience. I am humane officer and I do not get paid. I cover 3 counties for free! We have our own 501(c)3 humane society and are NO KILL. We have animals here for the past 15 years as no one wants them. we are in this for the animals 100% we also do not have adoption fees, but we do have contracts.. I like to think of us a new age humane society, all for the animals! we survive on donation and fundraising and have been in existence since 1993. So there are a few good places out there that do for the animals, you just have to really do your homework finding them. I have not run across any other agency like ours anywhere but am sure someone has one somewhere out there. So it’s not all power hungry money grubbing killers out there. you can find us on facebook, all animal protection inc, or auction for animals.
