We knew for certain coming into this election season that it would be a fateful one for animals, and at both the state and federal levels the Humane Society Legislative Fund made significant commitments, including endorsements, independent expenditures, and direct candidate contributions. We are thrilled with the results of our efforts to elect animal welfare champions, send anti-animal legislators packing, and remind the nation of the value and importance of political advocacy for animals.

As Joe Biden and Kamala Harris head to the White House, they bring with them a proven track record of protecting animals.

In past years, we have worked with both the president- and vice-president-elect to strengthen laws on wildlife, marine mammals, farm animals, and so much more, and we look forward to continue working with them in coming years.

We thought it might come to this, and with no declared winner in the presidential election, and a number of important House and Senate seats in play, we are in a holding pattern with our Humane Society Legislative Fund review of key outcomes. There are some tight races and slim margins out there, votes are still being counted in many jurisdictions, and we ask for your patience as we develop a full report. We’re making assessments on all relevant races as quickly as possible so that we can report back to you.
