HAP has worked with numerous cities, boroughs, townships, and all manner of municipalities over the years to express our shared commitment to animal and environmental protections. What follows is a collection of our proclamations and resolutions all with a shared goal of furthering our missing, and making the greater Pittsburgh region more compassionate and humane.
In February 2018, Sharpsburg, Pennsylvania Mayor Matthew Rudzki became the first mayor in the country to make our Proclamation declaring that all animals are sentient beings. After meeting with HAP, Mayor Rudzki was inspired to make his Proclamation at a Sharpsburg City Council meeting.
In March 2018, Monessen, Pennsylvania Mayor Matt Shorraw became the first city mayor in the country to make our Proclamation that all animals are sentient beings. After collaborating with HAP, Mayor Shorraw made his Proclamation at HAP’s 2018 Heroes Award Reception.
