Now, why would a group of dogs and cats be writing about Presidential candidates, especially since we just posted one on Ron Paul? We're glad you asked.
Michael Markarian of Humane Society Legislative Fund has a more recent post on the Presidential Candidates, which we find quite intriguing and would like to share.
In his January 9, 2008 article, "Speak Out for Animals this Primary Season," Markarian suggests voters call the campaign offices and ask where the candidates stand on animal issues. He has a link to help with the phone numbers. Email addresses are also provided. Humane treatment of animals is important. Let the candidates know that!
As many of you have already read in various news reports, Mike Huckabee has a lousy record on protecting animals. You can find information on various sites on the web or click here.
We're dogs & cats, so we can't vote for President of the United States. You - the voters, the pet owners, the animal advocates - are our voice.
Jan's friend Bill sent her this message and we hope he won't mind if we borrow it.
"I find in my studies of people how they feel and do for animals will let you know how they really feel about things and people. If they don't have a heart and feelings about animals and other things God made, they will be found to only have heart and feelings for special ones who happen to be in the same boat as they are floating in."
