FRAMINGHAM – Margareth Shepard has earned the endorsement of Mass Voters for Animals in her campaign for state representative.
“Mass Voters for Animals is pleased to endorse Margareth Shepard based on her concern for animal protection and her pledge to support any laws that would prevent animal cruelty, which she sees as an ethical and moral issue,” stated Marge Peppercorn of Mass Voters for Animals’s steering committee. “We look forward to her advocacy for animals on Beacon Hill.”
“Protecting and expanding animal welfare is close to my heart,” noted Margareth Shepard. “If elected, I will join the Protecting Animal Welfare Caucus in supporting legislation to protect companion animals, increase access to dog and cat adoption, and strive to be a more humane Commonwealth.”
Massachusetts Voters for Animals, founded in 1997, works to elect legislators in favor of expanding animal protection legislation. While many statewide animal welfare organizations champion legislation, Mass Voters for Animals is the only animal one in the Commonwealth that can directly advocate in elections for animal welfare.
