The 116th United States Congress convenes in January 2019, and Americans can expect continued gridlock and partisanship over the next two years. But animal welfare is the rare issue that unites both parties. With so many new members of Congress incoming, we must dive in and educate policymakers on urgent animal-protection issues.
Given this new opportunity to make history for animals and save lives, will you support the ASPCA as we forge ahead with this important work in the new year?
Critical bills to ban horse slaughter, protect animals during natural disasters, and accelerate the rehoming process for animal-fighting victims died at the end of 2018. We must start fresh with the new Congress as soon as possible: educating freshman members on these topics, adding cosponsors and getting these bills reintroduced. This will not happen unless you, as constituents, demand action. We need your voice!
Now's the time to gear up: Sign up to receive ASPCA Advocacy communications and commit to becoming a fierce ally for animals in 2019, because we can't do this without you—and our nation's animals are counting on all of us.
