It's happening

Tomorrow, all of our hard work from the last year comes to fruition. Humane voters like you will make history by electing the first ever pro-animal Mayor, Bill de Blasio, and dozens of animal-friendly City Council Members. 

If we show our paw power at the polls tomorrow, we’ll finally be in position to end the abuse of carriage horses and fix our city's animal shelter system. 

Get out and vote Tues, Nov 5! Visit our Humane Voter Election Center to find your polling place, see our endorsements for your district, then forward this to 5 friends.
