Read a bit about where he stands and how he’s voted on animal-related issues. While I appreciate his anti-war stance and am impressed by his campaign’s guerrilla marketing tactics, his record with animals is deplorable.

All I’m sayin’ is know where your candidate stands on *all* issues before you vote.

There’s still time bring a BARC shelter pet home for the holidays! Visit the old Gap store in Houston’s Highland Village where you’ll find BARC dogs and cats available for adoption.

Find out more about the Highland Village Adopt-A-Thon and see some of the available dogs in this video clip.

Mike Markarian, President of the Humane Society Legislative Fund and author of the Animals & Politics blog, is doing a series of posts about where the major presidential candidates stand on animal-related issues.

The first posting in The Presidential Files series about Mike Huckabee was disturbing. Be sure to read about his alleged family history of cruelty to animals and the suggestion that as the governor, he obstructed justice.

Markarian has also covered John Edwards.

I look forward to reading about all of the candidates.

BARC animals will be available for adoption at the Highland Village shopping center in Houston, December 14-16 and 21-23 from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. (until 9 p.m. December 22!). If you can’t adopt, open up your wallets–donations large and small help save animals! Here are the details:
