Biden: Continue to Advocate for Rescue Dogs and All Animals in Need

Target: Joe Biden, President-Elect of the United States

Goal: Continue to advocate for rescue dogs and all animals in need.

President-Elect Joe Biden will bring two dogs with him into the White House when he takes office. Biden’s German shepherd, Major, will be the first rescue dog to ever live in the White House. Biden adopted Major from the Delaware Humane Association in November of 2018. At that time, Biden was already caretaker to Champ, his first German shepherd, for ten years. Upon adopting Major, the Bidens said in a statement, “We are so happy to welcome Major to the Biden family, and we are grateful to the Delaware Humane Association for their work in finding forever homes for Major and countless other animals.” The Delaware Humane Association said that Major was part of a litter that was surrendered to the organization. The Delaware Humane Association said, “Once we posted about them…Joe Biden caught wind of them and reached out immediately. The rest is history.”

Champ and Major are both frequently featured on Biden’s social media pages and even made some key appearances leading up to the election, with captions such as, “No ruff days on the [campaign] trail when I have some Major motivation.”

Sign this petition to urge Joe Biden to continue to advocate for rescue dogs and all animals in need throughout his term as President of the United States.


Dear President-Elect Biden,

While there are many issues that you will face as the President of the United States, one that cannot be forgotten is the protection of and advocating for rescue dogs and all animals in need. It is historic that Major will be the first rescue dog to live in the White House. As your family’s choices and tastes influence our nation, I am sure that the presence of a rescue dog in the White House will open American’s eyes to the beauty of adopting a pet in need.

I urge you to continue to advocate for animals in need and to consider the health and wellness of animals–who have no voice of their own–in your policies and decisions throughout your term as President of the United States.

      He is our lawfully elected president. Spew your conspiracies somewhere else, this website is for animal advocacy ONLY.

    • You are a loser you piece of shit! Linda Hilly-Tittle go crawl in a cave and die! Nobody cares about you!

    • Yes he will be your President. Trump is history, finally getting rid of him and his animal killing sons.

    • Denise Alvarado Denise Alvarado says:

      Sore loser! President-elect Joe Biden was legally elected and won by millions of votes. Impeached tRump, on the other hand, is the first president to not have a pet in the WH in generations! You obviously have the same moral qualities as your money grubbing, life hating god and would destroy democracy rather than have a president who loves animals, people of all colors and creeds, and the environment.

      • Joe Biden, President-Elect of the United States

        Continue to advocate for rescue dogs and all animals in need.

        Joe Biden will be a great President of America, not vile and evil Trump the vilest and most corrupt President ever. And the vile and evil Trump family are as evil and corrupt as Trump.

    • Evan Jane Kriss says:

      You are delusional, Linda.

    • Linda, you are an evil animal hating moron and you definitely have no place being on an animal welfare site!

    • Oh fuck off. Your trump cunt doesn’t give a shit about animals. People like you are a waste of oxygen.

      • Wow Evelyn, you have a mouth that could put any drunken sailor to shame! Loaded with class, all of it low, but then, pretty much all liberals are low class! The only thing y’all know how to do is scream, get violent and vulgar, and throw temper tantrums like a spoiled 2 year old. If you would ever come up out of the gutter that you dwell in, you might finally see the light!

    • Yes he is and will be our president! Just accept reality and grow up already!! We don’t want animal hating trump and his evil hunter sons in the white house. Get over it!!!!

      • Great comment Maria Centeno.

        “Yes he is and will be our president! Just accept reality and grow up already!! We don’t want animal hating trump and his evil hunter sons in the white house. Get over it”!!!!

    Thank you, President elect Biden, for adopting a shelter animal, the first ever to occupy The White House. Please use the power of your office to continue to advocate for ALL shelter animals.

    Please BAN GAS CHAMBER EUTHANASIA in shelters, which is still legal in several states.

    Please SHUT DOWN all puppy and kitten mills.

    Please sign a law making ANIMAL ABANDONMENT a crime.

    Please sign a law making it ILLEGAL to use shelter animals in LABS.

    Thank you for your consideration of these vitally important issues.

  3. Well done Joe Biden. It is great that the upcoming USA president who will take over leadership is a descent animal supporting person. Donald Trump and his vile sons are animal hating morons.

    Actually, the first rescue dog to occupy the White House was Yuki, LBJ’s terrier mix
    But Major is the first shelter dog to occupy the White House.(LBJ’s daughter Luci found Yuki hanging around a gas station, probably dumped.)
    And yes – props to the Bidens!

      Obviously Renee is a believer of Authoritarian dictators like the A**clown soon to be booted out of the White House.

  6. Michelle Lew says:

    Actually every single election cycle the electoral college certifies a president elect December 8th December- 20th. Nobody has been certified as president elect. If you believe they have you are being brainwashed by the media and are refusing to think for yourself and do not know the constitution!
    I am sorry that this site does not understand the constitution!

    • Michelle, all you have to do is read these posts to realize that those that have posted on this thread have a relatively low IQ. Thus, they have no concept whatsoever of what our constitution says or stands for.

      • Lance Kammerud says:

        Spoken like a true Trumptard FedUp…the best part of you must of ran down your moms leg during conception…you and Trump have that in common.

  7. Stella Waldvogel says:

    Joe Biden is a good man, and he’s our lawfully elected president beginning at noon on January 20th. And I, along with millions of others, am relieved CONSIDERABLY.
