*no endorsement = no questionnaire was returned, or questionnaire contained unfavorable responses, or candidate had an unfavorable voting record.

The mission of the LOHVCa® is to increase protections for animals.  We do that by making our community aware of candidates who share our interest in animal protection.

The LOHVCa® recognizes that animal protection requires laws and enforcement.  Animal exploitation is a political issue, not just a moral one.  We intend to make animal protection a mainstream political issue by building support among citizens, activists, political parties, candidates, and elected representatives.

The LOHVCa®  is pleased to provide you with the following list of candidates who we are endorsing in the June 7, 2016 California primary election.  We selected endorsed candidates through a careful analysis of past voting records of incumbent legislators, and through a detailed questionnaire for new candidates.  The questionnaires contained a variety of items relating to important animal issues.  Additionally, we solicited all candidates’ willingness to sponsor legislation to improve the plight of animals.
