WASHINGTON — In light of the projected presidential election results, the Humane Society of the United States issued the following statement:
“We are heartened by the proven records of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris in sponsoring and supporting animal protection legislation and policies. We are encouraged by the prospect of positive change for animals under their leadership of the executive branch.
Protecting the vulnerable from suffering, harm and abuse is clearly a core value for all Americans, be they Democrats, Republicans or independents. These values run deep and they are the foundation of our country’s strong, nonpartisan animal protection movement. We look forward to working with this new administration to bring our country’s laws and policies into still greater alignment with those values.”
