From the email (from the New York League of Humane Voters):

NYLHV Veterinarian Needs Your Help!

Dr. John Hynes, a veterinarian and Board Member of NYLHV has been nominated to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)  Executive Board. If Dr. Hynes is elected, he can work to strengthen animal welfare policies and help promote more humane legislation from within the organization.   Although the AVMA ought to oppose cruel and inhumane treatment to animals, they actually support many practices that cause unnecessary pain and suffering to animals used for food, entertainment, research, and companionship.  All veterinarians will receive a ballot in the mail this week. Please call your veterinarians TODAY and ask them to vote for Dr. Hynes when they receive their ballot. He is our best hope for improving conditions for animals, and getting more humane legislation passed through this national veterinary organization. To reach Dr. Hynes, or for more information, visit www.nycvet.org.
