WASHINGTON - A New Jersey congressman is being honored for his commitment to animal welfare.
Rep. Frank LoBiondo picked up an award from the Humane Society of the United States on Thursday for his continued support of legislation protecting animals.
The South Jersey Republican is among eight members of New Jersey's 15-member congressional delegation to score 100 percent on the Humane Society's legislative scorecard.
Another New Jersey congressman, Republican Chris Smith, also was recognized.
The Humane Society scored legislators based on their votes on bills dealing with issues ranging from dog fighting to pet food safety to polar bear protection.
LoBiondo and his wife have two rescue Weimaraners.
The HSUS is not in the least bit interested in Animal Welfare. The HSUS is only interested in Animal Segregation, cutting all ties with animals and people. They are against all pet ownership so their honoring of the New Jersey Congressman is a bit hypocritical. The New Jersey Congressional delegation is among the worst in promoting the Anti-Hunting mentality in the State of New Jersey and in the United States.
