TOGETHER WE WILL GO "FAR" FOR THE ANIMALS


 
The Fresno Animal Roundtable is currently working to engage with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) Pets for Life program – a comprehensive, community-based initiative to educate, empower and enable responsible animal care in communities across the valley.  Please check the website for updates and meeting dates.

Fresno Area Roundtable is based on positive, achievable, timely and actionable short, mid and long term solutions.  Discussions are based on respect, positivity and forward-moving ideas.  Please leave negativity at the door.

WHAT CAN YOU DO RIGHT NOW? - USE THE POWER OF THE VOTE!

It’s ELECTION TIME.  It’s a great time to see where our elected officials stand relative to Animal Issues in the valley, and an even better time for you to influence our representatives in these matters.

If you have the chance, be sure to ask your candidates some important questions, and make sure they know you care about animals in the valley, and you want them to do the same.
