Arizona cruelty bill veto
Ducey Does It!

HSLF-endorsed Ariz. Governor Doug Ducey vetoed a dangerous bill Monday night that aimed to de-classify farm animals as animals. Big ag was behind the bill, whose goal was to drastically decrease farm animals' protections under the state's animal cruelty code. Not on Gov. Ducey's watch. And thanks to a swell of opposition from animal advocates, not on yours either.

Let's See Where We're At

As we fully settle in to the new year, it's good to take stock of exactly how animal issues are faring in the halls of power. Here's our own State of the Animals address for 2015. [image credit: Lara Koch]

2015 STATE OF THE ANIMALS

Animal suffering can feel overwhelming. How can we change the institutional cruelties that so often befall our pets, farm animals, and wildlife? If compassion leads us to want to protect animals, then good sense leads us straight to Congress to do that. We know the best way is to lobby our leaders for kindness, and wipe cruelty off the books. Please make a gift today to charge up these efforts. Because love's power knows no bounds, and together, neither will we. [image: Lara Koch]
