Why is it important to add your name to the League of Humane Voters Database?

In order to make a difference in the treatment of animals in Washington State we must be able to influence the political process. Being an informed voter is one way to do that. However, just as importantly we need to be able to tell legislators in each district that there are many of their constituents who feel that humane treatment of animals is fundamentally important to them. The League of Humane Voters is building a voter database and we need you as a member in order to make a difference. Your commitment is simply to stay informed through our website on the issues affecting the treatment of animals. Please sign up today by e-mailing mary@lohv.org.

                                                                                      

We are Kindred Spirits 

We are the eagle looking down from the sky
We are the puppy playing with a ball 

We are the cat purring meditatively
We are the horse nuzzling your hair
We are the lamb bleating for food
We are the calf nursing



We are also the fawn watching the hunter take aim
We are the dog whimpering in pain after an accident
We are the kitten peeking through steel bars at the shelter
We are the baby gorilla being grabbed by poachers
We are the steer in a slaughterhouse
We are the monkey locked in a cage



From "How the Remarkable Bond between Humans and Animals can Change The Way We Live"
by Allen M. Schoen (Please Call Me by My True Namesake, Thich Nhat Hanh)

 Love the Animals.
 God has given them the rudiments of thought and joy untroubled. Don't trouble it, don't harass them, don't deprive them of their happiness, don't work against God's intent.
- Fyodor Dostoevsky
