In a recent statewide poll, 86 percent of Pennsylvania voters polled support their legislators efforts to ensure humane treatment of animals. Our aim is to make sure that Pennsylvania voters who care about the treatment of animals know which candidates will support a humane agenda and deserve their vote at the polls!
Humane PA, Pennsylvania’s Political Voice for Animals, is committed to passing stronger anti-cruelty laws in Pennsylvania and the way we approach this important task is to is to make sure that we elect humane leaders. .
Humane PA will be issuing endorsements for the General Election in toward the end of September. Before we endorse candidates, we give them the opportunity to let us know where they stand on animal cruelty so we can measure their responses and commitment to stand strong for the humane treatment of animals against their opponent(s). Our endorsement process is not taken lightly and we spend a great deal of time reviewing and evaluating an incumbent candidate’s voting record and leadership on animal bills. We also ask every candidate – both incumbents and first time office seekers – to complete the Humane PA Endorsement survey as the responses are critical in determining which candidates will receive our endorsement. Our survey queries candidates on key pieces of pending animal legislation, both the bills that are easily supported as well as those that may face opposition. We also ask candidates to tell us about themselves, the role of animals in their lives and their feelings about how animals should be treated. Past responses have been quite illuminating! All responses are kept strictly confidential, and allow us to evaluate the level of commitment a candidate has to helping protect Pennsylvania’s animals from cruel treatment.
Please note this survey is for candidates only.
