Lynne Abraham Secures Pet Owners’ Vote in Philly

Lynne Abraham

Animals, as if they were able to vote, seem to be the focus in Pennsylvania elections these days. Governor Wolf took office following an endorsement from the Humane PA PAC, and his opponent Republican Tom Corbett spoke about issues affecting wild and domesticated animals, as reported by Philly.com

Treatment of animals is also emphasized in the campaign for mayor, and candidate Lynne Abraham has a tangible track record on this issue as former district attorney. She successfully prosecuted a case that involved the cruel kidnapping, torture and holding for ransom of Bill Whiting’s dog Edna. She also dealt with other animal cruelty cases and saved some small kittens.

While animals don’t vote, pet owning is becoming increasingly popular, to judge by the success of pet-oriented retail chains such as Pet Smart. In addition, products for pets are becoming fancier, from freeze dried organic pet food to state of the art grooming supplies to animal day care. It may be an issue close to the hearts of Pennsylvania politicians, but it is also a prudent move to emphasize proper treatment of animals in an election in which, odds are, a lot of voters are devoted to their furry, scaly or finned friends.
