President’s MessageGary Block, DVM, MS, DACVIMOcean State Veterinary Specialists, RIIt has been an honor and privilege to serve as President of the Board these last 3 years.As proud as I am in all that we have accomplished, the most enjoyable part of my jobhas been the frequency with which I have been able to meet and interact with so manydedicated HSVMA members. A brief perusal of the bios of members of the HSVMABoard of Directors, Leadership Council and State Representatives would quickly leadone to realize what an incredibly diverse, motivated and accomplished group of animaladvocates we have helping the HSVMA. The majority of these people are volunteers;people with full-time jobs who feel strongly enough about the mission of the HSVMAto devote their limited free time to helping advance the initiatives of our organization.Thanks to their efforts and the incredible work of our HSVMA staff and willingness ofour members to engage when asked, we have been able to make an outsized impact onthe veterinary landscape since our founding only 10 years ago.HSVMA has served as a catalyst for many of the welfare issues our profession is currentlyconfronting such as enhancing access to veterinary care for low-income pet owners andby identifying and highlighting previously unrecognized welfare issues such as healthproblems associated with brachycephalic dogs. We have grown our State Rep programto 25 states plus the District of Columbia which has allowed us to marshal support forstate legislative efforts and ballot initiatives on critical animal welfare measures. Studentchapters and representatives as well as our active Speaker’s Bureau at veterinary schools,along with our Compassionate Care Scholarship program, have helped like-minded vetstudents learn about the unique role HSVMA plays in our profession. HSVMA membersare now routinely publishing animal welfare-related articles in prestigious journals andour online and in-person CE events focusing on animal welfare issues reach thousands ofveterinary professionals annually.We will be embarking on an effort to update the HSVMA strategic plan over the nextfew months and thank in advance those of you who respond to our member survey toshare your thoughts as part of this process. We look forward to unveiling the plan, andour new goals, during 2019. I am excited to be turning the reigns of the Board Presidencyposition over to my friend and colleague, Dr. Barry Kipperman, as the HSVMA beginsa new chapter and what will certainly be another decade of growth, success, and mostimportantly, improved lives for the animals we are charged with protecting.Respectfully,Gary Block, DVM, MS, DACVIM2 Humane Society Veterinary Medical AssociationDr. Gary Block wasHSVMA’s featured speaker atVMX 2018 presenting on thetopic of “Doing the Most forOur Patients with the Least:Evidence-Based VeterinaryCare on the Cheap.”Photo Credit: HSVMACOVER PHOTO: RAVSvolunteer veterinarian Dr. AaronGlauberg examines a puppyon a RAVS field clinic servingthe Cheyenne River IndianReservation in South Dakota.Photo Credit: Daniel Heddon

HSVMA member Dr. Shelly Kamath Pancoast met with Rhode Island legislators insupport of bills to ban battery cages and to require that pet shops work with sheltersand rescue groups to adopt out animals. Photo Credit: HSUSAdvocacyBarbara Hodges, DVM, MBAHSVMA Veterinary AdviserIn 2018, more than 1,000 veterinary professionals joinedHSVMA in actively advocating for advancements in animalwelfare nationwide. Highlights of our advocacy effortsinclude these statewide legislative efforts:In Rhode Island, HSVMA supported a long-fought-fornew law that phases out the extreme confinement ofegg-laying hens in battery cages. Fueled by increasingconsumer demand for better treatment of farm animals,RI became the sixth state to crack down on this inhumaneform of animal housing.In Maryland, HSVMA strongly advocated for legislationthat bans the sale of dogs sourced from puppy mills inretail pet stores. The new law promotes partnershipswith shelters and rescues as sole sources of dog andcat pet store adoptions, and aims to disrupt a majordistribution pipeline through which mill animals reach theunsuspecting public.In Indiana, HSVMA joined a broad coalition oforganizations and animal advocates in blocking the reopening—for the first time in 50 years—of hunting andtrapping seasons on bobcats that had been proposed bythe state’s Natural Resources Commission.In California, HSVMA provided veterinary support forProposition 12, which would ensure that egg-laying hensin the state live exclusively in cage-free environments. Itwould also require humane sourcing of all farm animalproducts from egg-laying hens, calves raised for veal andfemale breeding pigs sold in the Golden State—regardlessof where these animals have been raised.In Florida, HSVMA veterinarians advocated forAmendment 13, which seeks to once and for all phase outgreyhound dog racing—already a declining industry in theSunshine State.In Ohio, legislation closely mirroring more rigorous andhumane standards of care for puppy mill dogs—thathad been proposed in a ballot measure—was signedinto law. This victory came about because thousands ofbusinesses, rescues, shelters, public officials, and HSVMAveterinarians rallied behind the cause.Federal Humane Lobby DayIn July HSVMA staffers, members, and our DC Repgathered for a day of lobbying on Capitol Hill.Our efforts focused on opposing the King Amendmentto the FARM Bill, which aims to nullify most state andlocal laws regarding agricultural products, and would,by its lowest-common-denominator approach, negativelyimpact many animal protection measures. We lobbied insupport of FARM Bill provisions that would (1) prohibitthe domestic slaughter, trade and import/export ofdogs and cats for human consumption, (2) extend theban on animal fighting to all US jurisdictions, includingUS territories, and (3) extend current federal domesticviolence protections to include pets. We also advocatedin support of the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST)Act, which would outlaw use of inhumane techniquesused by unethical trainers to achieve unfair competitiveadvantages in Tennessee-Walker-type horse competitions.Furthermore, we pressed legislators to preserve theintegrity of the Endangered Species Act.2018 Year in Review 3

Photo Credit: HSUSState RepresentativeProgramBarbara Hodges, DVM, MBAHSVMA Veterinary AdviserLaunched in 2014, the HSVMA State Representativeprogram now includes a talented team of 27, representing25 states (there are two states with Co-Reps) and theDistrict of Columbia.The HSVMA State Rep team consists of active volunteerveterinarian liaisons who conduct outreach to their stateVMAs and within the broader profession. They helpwith advocacy on legislative initiatives, provide experttestimony, submit opinion pieces to media outlets andpublish articles in professional journals. They also assistwith membership outreach at veterinary conferences,present talks at veterinary medical colleges and offer vitalfirst-hand field perspectives from their respective states.There is no typical background required of an HSVMAState Rep, except a strong commitment to workingwithin the veterinary community to help advance thehealth and welfare of animals. In fact, we celebratetheir diverse backgrounds.Among our Reps are small animal and mixed animalpractitioners, house call veterinarians, practic in Need clinic, a jointventure between the Rhode Island VMA and the RhodeIsland SPCA.A team of HSVMA representatives traveled to the MuttopiaSanctuary in Northern California to present Dr. Christi Camblor(second from right) with the Humane Achievement Award.Co-founder Moncho Camblor (right) was also present for theaward presentation.
