Washington, DC –
Yesterday, Congressman Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks) received the Humane
Advocate Award from the Humane Society of the United States. This is
Congressman Sherman’s sixth consecutive award from the Humane Society.
Sherman was given the award for his leadership efforts on animal welfare issues and for his consistently perfect score on the Humane Society’s Legislative Scorecard.
Since coming to Congress in 1997, Sherman has been a fierce advocate for animals, working to ensure that they are not subjected to undue pain or suffering. Sherman has been a leader on many animal issues including the regulation of puppy mills, protecting endangered and exotic animals, halting experimentation on chimpanzees, protecting horses from slaughter and consumption, and stopping the disgusting sport of dog fighting by punishing animal fighting spectators.
"We are tremendously grateful to Congressman Sherman for his work to protect animals from cruelty, and to stop abuses such as animal fighting, horse slaughter, and inhumane factory farming practices," said Wayne Pacelle, president of The Humane Society of the USA. "Congressman Sherman has always been a stalwart advocate for animal protection in Congress, and we applaud his advocacy for all creatures."
