Why join AVRAL?

As radio personality Paul Harvey famously said, “Ever occur to you why some of us can be this much concerned with animals’ suffering? Because government is not. Why not? Animals don’t vote.” It’s true: animals don’t vote. But you do. And if you care about animals, please join us. It’s free and you can make a big difference in the lives of Alabama’s companion animals.

Our Mission

Alabama Voters for Responsible Animal Legislation (AVRAL) is a grassroots, nonpartisan political action committee (PAC). We aren’t affiliated with any political party. We are everyday Alabamians from every walk of life who care what happens to the companion animals in our state. We pass laws in Alabama to protect animals. We address pressing issues such as overpopulation of dogs and cats and animal cruelty and neglect. We need people like you to elect politicians who support animal-friendly legislation. We need you to contact your legislators and urge them to support the bills we introduce each year in the Alabama legislature. Not sure how to do this? Don’t worry: we will guide you each step of the way.
