This web site,, introduces Humane USA, the nation's first major national political action committee for animals. Please visit the site to find out how you can help to change the political landscape for animals in the United States.

On this site, you will find the following:

~ A list of current endorsements for candidates for Congress. Humane USA urges you to vote for the endorsed candidates if they represent you in the U.S. House or Senate.

~ A list of major Congressional votes and bills on animal protection. You can find out how your legislators stand on humane issues.

~ A listing of ballot initiatives to be voted on by the people of nine states in November. It is critical that animal advocates know how to vote on these measures and become involved in these campaigns.

~ Other pertinent information about Humane USA.

During the next three weeks, Humane USA will publish a final list of Congressional endorsements on its web site, along with a recommendation on a candidate to support for President of the United States.

The web site will also include a list of the Congress's worst legislators on animal protection issues. Humane USA is targeting these politicians for defeat.

It is an axiom of American politics that organized minorities command the influence of politicians. Look at the NRA. It has 3 million members - a small percentage of the voting electorate. But, from a politician's vantage point, a voting block of 3 or 5 percent may be enough to tip a Congressional or presidential election.

Animal advocates need to engage themselves in electoral politics. That's the purpose of Humane USA. We can exert an enormous impact on elections if we work together.

Spread the word, check out the site, and also please join Humane USA PAC.
