Founded in 1980 by animal advocates Virginia Handley, Gladys Sargent and Rose Lernberg, PawPAC became the first organization dedicated to the election of candidates for state office in California who are committed to the well-being of animals.

Co-founder Virginia Handley wrote, “Nothing is more powerful than the written word—especially when it’s written in a law book! The lives of millions of animals can be affected overnight when new laws go into effect every January 1. Many organizations work to help animals, but PawPAC is unique by helping to make sure that the laws protect all animals, whether on farms, in the wild or in our homes.”

PawPAC’s annual Voting Record is a highly regarded humane scorecard that provides voters with grades for every legislator, and includes the Governor. Its Endorsements in election years reflect lifetime records for incumbents, and recommendations for promising new candidates.
