These candidates have responded to A.L.A.N.'s animal issues interview or otherwise have a record of support for animal issues, and we believe they will be inclined to vote for, or sponsor, key animal legislation.
free to help these candidates directly, with donations, volunteer work,
canvassing, etc and make your animal-related views known. We believe they
will be animal-friendly legislators and administrators. If you want your
support to be combined as part of the ALANPAC legislative agenda (in the hope
that, "in union there is strength"), please contact ALAN to
