The Humane Society of the United States, the nation's largest animal protection organization, supports the use of citizens’ ballot initiatives after more traditional forms of policy reform have been exhausted, and when politicians and state regulators are unresponsive to citizens’ concerns.

A History of Success

Over the past 25 years, The HSUS, along with our affiliates and citizen advocates, has been successful in the majority of ballot initiatives undertaken across 18 states, helping to ensure the welfare of wildlife, farm animals, marine life and companion animals throughout the country.
