The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) has released their top picks for animal-friendly candidates for this federal election.
For the last several weeks, IFAW has encouraged animal lovers to use their surveying tool and contact would-be politicians in their individual ridings. Each voter is able to view how their candidates responded (if they responded) or send a follow up email through the tool, too.
Today, IFAW released their top candidates in a blog, and we are happy to present them to you here. Please note, The Fur-Bearers are not endorsing any candidates or parties in this election.
