You're Everything.

Especially now. The upcoming election's a big one for animals, and you can help set the course. The lives of wolves and bears are at stake in Michigan and Maine. And humane candidates are working around the clock to defeat opponents with poor records on animal issues. The animals--and the leaders who defend them--need all the help they can get.

THE LATEST FROM HSLF

ELECTION ALERT: Bears in Maine are in trouble. It's still legal in that state to hound, trap, and bait the animals--cruel practices that sometimes leave orphan cubs behind.

ELECTION ALERT: Michigan politicians fabricated stories about wolves to justify a reckless trophy hunt on them. There are fewer than 650 left in the state, and they need our help.

Congress is considering a bill that would crack down on the cruel practice of "soring"--intentionally burning and wounding a show horse's feet and legs just to win ribbons.
