Meet Our Massachusetts State Director

After working at a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation facility in Connecticut, then campaigning to protect wolves in Michigan and bears in Maine, Stephanie Harris is the Massachusetts state director. Under her guidance, Massachusetts made history for farm animals when – in a landslide election – Massachusetts voters approved Question 3 with 78 percent of the vote, requiring that meat and eggs produced or sold in the Commonwealth come from facilities that give animals enough space to stand up, lie down, turn around, and extend their limbs. Today, Stephanie continues to work tirelessly to ensure that robust animal protection laws are passed and that those on the front lines have the training, resources, and support to ensure those laws are enforced.

  • Massachusetts: Protect wildlife from eight bad bills

    Massachusetts voters approved the Wildlife Protection Act more than 20 years ago. But eight bills could undermine that law by allowing cruel methods of hunting and trapping in the Commonwealth, and some would even repeal parts of that ground-breaking act.

  • Massachusetts: Help animals in laboratories

    Healthy dogs and cats deserve to have the opportunity to be adopted into loving homes after being used for research, testing, or education purposes, instead of being euthanized.

  • Massachusetts: End Ivory and Rhino Horn Trafficking

    Our undercover investigation revealed that undocumented ivory items are being sold all over Massachusetts. Poaching threatens the survival of elephants and rhinos; cutting off the supply and demand for ivory and rhino horn is the only way to ensure their protection.

  • Massachusetts, protect farm animals from cruelty

    Massachusetts, farm animals need your help. Lawmakers who opposed the Act to Prevent Cruelty to Farm Animals are now pushing to establish a deceptive livestock board. Their new measure, H.441, would create a politically unaccountable board that could put agribusiness interests over the safety and protection of animals in Massachusetts.

  • Boston: Protect marine wildlife from harmful plastic

    Plastic bags are an environmental disaster. They wash into rivers, lakes, streams and oceans where they are ingested by or entangle sea turtles, otters, seals, fish and birds. Some ocean animals mistake the bags for food, fill their stomachs with plastics and die of starvation.
