About Humane Voters of Arizona

Humane Voters of Arizona (HVA) is an all-volunteer, non-partisan organization that supports candidates who care about animals and animal protection. Electing those candidates is the most crucial step in enacting animal protection laws. HVA monitors the legislature for bills that affect animals, and works to help pass measures that help animals and to stop damaging bills. It tracks legislative voting records which are published in its annual legislative report.
