voiceless dogAs you read this, there are dogs, cats and animals suffering, never knowing a home or kind hand, and subjected to pain and misery their entire lives. They are chained outdoors, imprisoned in filthy cages, or deserted in backyards and alleyways. Others are forced to endure deplorable living conditions in puppy mill breeding operations.  You have the power to change this with your vote. 

Maryland Votes For Animals (MVFA) has released its 2014 Voter Guide so you know which candidates deserve your vote and have committed to fighting to protect animals. The time has come to put a stop to the unthinkable cruelty animals suffer at the hands of abusers, including the horrific abuse of dogfighting incited by spectators.  It is time to do something.

2014 - A Crucial Year for Maryland's Animals

Now's your chance to help elect humane candidates to office!

It's a big year for MVFA because as a political action committee (PAC), we can engage in political activity by endorsing candidates for office. We are the only PAC for animals in Maryland and your best source of information about voting records and the stated positions of candidates on crucial animal welfare issues. Our goal is to supply animal lovers like you across Maryland with the information that will turn you into "Political Animals for Animals." Then you can make an educated decision about which candidates deserve your humane vote - and which ones don't.

MVFA is a nonpartisan organization that evaluates candidates based on a single criterion: where they stand on animal welfare issues in Maryland. MVFA does not judge candidates based on party affiliation or any other issue. We're all about helping animals by helping you elect humane candidates to the Maryland General Assembly.


MVFA's Endorsement Questionnaire - In a few short weeks, MVFA will post our Endorsement Questionnaire on our website. This document will be sent to every candidate to the Maryland General Assembly. How candidates answer this questionnaire, coupled with their voting record and their interview with MVFA board members will determine whether they obtain MVFA's endorsement.

MVFA's Humane Scorecard - In June MVFA will post our Humane Scorecard on our website for your review. There's no need to guess about whether your delegates and state senator have supported humane legislation over the past 4 years - we'll provide you with their voting records and give each legislator a score.

MVFA's Primary Election Endorsements - This spring and early summer is the season for endorsements! It's an exciting time to stay tuned to MVFA in advance of Maryland's primary election. Early voting begins on June 12th so we'll have posted all our primary election endorsements by that date.

MVFA's General Election Endorsements - Summer 2014 will be hot! That's because MVFA will be posting our endorsements for the all-important general election. Early voting begins October 23rd so we'll have posted all our general election endorsements by that date.
