Compassion PAC was created in 2020 by the founder and key supporters of the animal advocacy organization, Social Compassion in Legislation, with the intent of focusing the collective donations of individual animal advocates, groups, and corporations to drive in public policy and initiatives that protect animals and the environment by supporting political candidates at the local and state level.

The purpose of Compassion PAC is clear: voluntary contributions made by citizens and groups are consolidated and used to help elect candidates who understand and support protecting animals. These are not members’ dues; this is money given freely by people in recognition of the importance of representation in the political process.

Compassion PAC empowers and assists these candidates and elected officials by providing extra resources to their campaigns, local or statewide.


At the Compassion PAC, our mission is to get political for animals and the environment by helping to elect candidates who are strong animal and environmental advocates.

In order to make laws protecting animals and the environment we must elect compassionate lawmakers. To accomplish this, we research and interview elected officials and candidates running for public office, endorsing those that already have exemplary voting records on these issues or candidates that we believe will be strong advocates. We then identify “priority races” for the purpose of supporting our endorsed candidates with funds from Compassion PAC by direct contribution to their campaigns.
