SACRAMENTO – Senator Scott Wilk, representing the 21st Senate District, has received an “A” grade from PawPAC, an organization dedicated to the passage of humane laws and election of humane legislators.
“Thank you to PawPac for being a steady advocate for issues that protect our animal population. PawPAC’s engagement on these types of issues makes a difference,” said Wilk. “As the parent of two four-legged, furry kids, it is hard to fathom someone intentionally hurting or endangering them, but sadly that does happen far too often. As an elected official I am proud to stand for common-sense legislation that will protect our animals from harm.”
Senator Wilk has carried legislation to crack down on animal abusers (Senate Bills 1198 in 2018 and 580 in 2019). He has also carried legislation to expand the pool of animal blood donors in California (Senate Bill 202 in 2019) and improve conditions for animals that do donate blood.
”PawPAC does good work for the animals of California,” said Wilk. “I am one human that is honored to have my efforts recognized and will continue to advocate for policies that support the humane treatment of animals.”
Founded in 1980, PawPAC was the first organization dedicated to the election of candidates for state office in California who are committed to the well-being of animals. Many organizations work to help animals, but PawPAC is unique by helping to make sure that the laws protect all animals, whether in farms, in the wild or in homes.
