Paul Fong for State Senate

Dear Friend,

Election day is 8 days 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 Paul Fong is a friend of animal protection.

We're encouraging animal advocates to support Paul Fong for California’s 28th State Assembly district.

Paul Fong is a member of the Animal Protection Caucus and has been a champion for animal protection in the California State Assembly. Among his many efforts, Paul Fong has:

  • Authored AB 376 to prohibit the possession, sale, trade and distribution of shark fin. Shark fin soup and related products drives the cruel practice of cutting off a shark’s fin, often while the animal is still alive, and then the shark is thrown back into the sea. 
  • Voted for SB 425 to increase fines and create parity with dogfighting in the Penal Code allowing for the forfeiture of property obtained using illegal profits gained through cockfighting activities.
  • Voted for SB 702 to create a cost-effective way to reunite pets and owners and reduce local agency costs associated with holding, re-homing or euthanizing animals.
  • Voted for SB 917 to ban the sale of animals in parking lots and along roadsides, and increases fines and possible jail time for those convicted of felony animal neglect.
  • Voted for AB 564 to re-establish the Municipal Shelter Spay-Neuter Fund, allowing for voluntary contributions by taxpayers on their annual income tax returns.
  • Voted for AB 1117 to amend the Penal Code to prohibit criminals convicted of animal cruelty from owning animals for a specified period of time after their conviction.
  • Voted for SB 1221 to ban hound hunting of bears and bobcats.
  • Voted for AB 1437 to require that all eggs sold in California comply with modest animal welfare and food safety standards consistent with Prop 2, a ballot measure overwhelmingly approved by statewide voters.

Paul Fong is a friend of animals and we encourage you to vote for him on November 6. Please forward this email to friends and family and share it on Facebook.

Thanks for all you do for animals.
