Mary Bono Mack

Dear Friend,

Election day is less than two weeks away, and advocates of animal protection need to know who is standing up for their interests. The Humane Society Legislative Fund is the non-partisan political arm of the humane movement, and we want you to know that Mary Bono Mack and Dianne Feinstein are friends of animal protection.

We're encouraging animal advocates to support Mary Bono Mack for U.S. Congress and Dianne Feinstein for U.S. Senate on November 6.

Among her efforts in the U.S. Congress, Mary Bono Mack has:

  • Sponsored the Truth in Fur Labeling Act to require accurate labeling of all garments trimmed with animal fur so consumers are not deceived into believing the apparel is faux fur (H.R. 2480/P.L. 111-313)
  • Co-sponsored the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act, H.R. 1513, to phase out the use of chimpanzees in invasive research, retire federally-owned chimpanzees to sanctuary, and save millions of taxpayer dollars
  • Co-sponsored the Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act, H.R. 2492, to close a loophole in the federal animal fighting law by making it a crime to attend or take a child to a dogfight or cockfight
  • Co-sponsored the Puppy Uniform Protection and Safety (PUPS) Act, H.R. 835, to protect dogs and crack down on large-scale puppy mill abuses
  • Voted for an amendment to cap agriculture subsidies that would limit huge taxpayer giveaways to commodity growers (H.AMDT.124/H.R.1)
  • Voted to protect threatened polar bears in the Arctic and prevent the import of sport-hunted polar bear trophies from Canada (H.AMDT.1008/H.R. 4089)

Diane Fienstein

Among her efforts in the U.S. Senate, Dianne Feinstein has:

  • Sponsored the Egg Products Inspection Act Amendments of 2012, S. 3239, to extend some Prop 2 standards (to ban barren battery cages in the egg industry) to the entire nation, improving the treatment of hundreds of millions of egg-laying hens
  • Sponsored the Downed Animal Enforcement Act of 2008, S. 2770, to strengthen the federal penalties for the slaughter of non-ambulatory livestock too sick or injured to stand or walk on their own
  • Sponsored the Protect America's Wildlife (PAW) Act of 2009, S. 1535, to close a loophole in federal law that allows the shooting of wolves and other wildlife using airplanes and helicopters
  • Sponsored the Preservation of Antibiotics for Medical Treatment Act of 2011, S. 1211, to phase out the routine non-therapeutic use of antibiotics in farm animals—a common practice to promote growth and compensate for overcrowded, stressful, unsanitary conditions on factory farms—in order to maintain the effectiveness of antibiotics for treating sick people and animals
  • Co-sponsored the Puppy Uniform Protection and Safety (PUPS) Act, S. 707, to crack down on abusive “puppy mills” in the U.S., where breeding dogs are often stacked in wire cages for years to produce litter after litter, without exercise, veterinary care, socialization or human companionship
  • Co-sponsored the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act, S. 1176, which bans the slaughter of horses, including the export of live horses for slaughter in other countries, for human consumption

Mary Bono Mack and Dianne Feinstein are friends of animals and we encourage you to vote for them on November 6. Please forward this email to friends and family and share it on Facebook.

Thanks for all you do for animals.

Sincerely,
