Vote Dog

One of the best ways to support our mission – increased dog access on the Peninsula – is to support and elect dog-friendly candidates. City councils, county supervisors, and other Peninsula representatives determine where dogs are allowed on and off-leash. Peninsula DOG PAC, the political arm of our organization, will support pro-dog access candidates and inform the public about where candidates stand in relation to dog access issues so you can make an informed decision on who deserves your support in the next election cycle.

Power comes from your vote. Power also comes from numbers. Please ask your network to support us and join our fight to get more tails on trails!
