The mission of Maryland Votes for Animals, Inc. is to create and support humane legislation, to engage animal advocates, and to work with legislators to promote animal welfare in Maryland.
We are a collective voice, central organization, and social network of concerned citizens who will work to:
- Reduce animal cruelty by promoting the passage of legislation to combat animal abuse in Maryland.
- Promote the election of representatives willing to champion and vote for humane legislation for Maryland’s animals.
- Champion issues and educational programs focusing on the humane treatment of all animals.
- Encourage greater representation of animal advocates within the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) decision-making process, including humane non-lethal alternatives to human/wildlife management issues.
- Advocate for greater statewide funding and usage of non-lethal alternatives for wildlife management, pet overpopulation, and for promotion of humane free-range farming methods.
