I am so happy about this election result in CA. I couldn’t vote since I live in Vermont but I feel so good about donating to this campaign. Here’s an email I received from the Humane Society US:
Take a bow. You rewrote history for animals.
Thanks to you, 20 million animals in California will soon be spared the worst abuses of factory farms. And I’m confident that we’ll look back at Prop 2 as a pivotal moment in how our nation treats animals who are raised for food.
Early returns tonight show that more than 60% of Californians voted for Prop 2. This is a tremendous victory for animals, for The Humane Society of the United States…and for you. We were able to reach millions of California voters with our message of compassion only because you stood with us—by taking action, by donating to the campaign, and by telling those you knew in California about Prop 2 and what it would do for animals and for citizens there.
This was a momentous election for the nation. I’m so grateful and honored for everything you did to make Prop 2 a big part of the story. Please read my blog over the coming days for my take on Prop 2 and what it means for animal protection.
It may be a clichÃƒÂ© to say that “we couldn’t have done it without you.” But it’s so utterly true. Thank you.
Sincerely, Wayne Pacelle President & CEO The Humane Society of the United States
