Please join Humane Voters of Washington for a Zoom fundraiser on Sunday, April 25 to re-elect Dave Upthegrove to the King County Council!

Sunday, April 25th, 2021
Over Zoom!
RSVP HERE, on Facebook, or email

Dave’s commitment to animal welfare issues began in college where he served as President of the University of Colorado Animal Rights Group. Later, as a Washington State legislator, Dave helped lead the effort to defend citizen initiatives that banned the cruel and inhumane use of steel-jaw leghold traps as well as bear-baiting and hound hunting. His consistent support for animal issues earned him the Humane Society Legislator of the Year award. On the King County Council, Dave has been working to end the use of fetal pigs in the training program used by county paramedics. Dave and his husband have taken in feral cats and an elderly shelter dog, and currently share their home with their beloved cat, Dobby.

Bring a cup of coffee and your furry, feathery or scaly companion to introduce at this fun virtual event, and learn more about how Dave is helping animals! RSVP by making a contribution of any amount HERE or email

We hope to see you and your animal friends on April 25!
