U.S Congressional Animal Protection Caucus (117th Congress)
ASPCA Position: Support
Co-Chairs: Reps. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) and Vern Buchanan (R-FL)

The Congressional Animal Protection Caucus is a beacon of hope for animals in Washington, D.C. This caucus is a bipartisan group of U.S. representatives (hailing from all corners of the nation) who are interested in promoting and advancing commonsense, humane animal welfare laws. A caucus is not a committee—it’s more like a congressional extra-curricular. Legislators don’t have to join any caucus; they do so because they want to.

With a new Congress in place, the ASPCA hopes to increase awareness of and membership in the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus, which we think will help speed the passage of animal-friendly federal legislation.
There were more than 150 representatives in the Caucus last Congress; that’s a great starting point! This means that there are more than 250 House members not yet involved with the Caucus – including 93 new members of the House. We’re confident that many new Members love animals—and likely have pets of their own—who would join if asked. As a constituent, you are in the best position to help make him or her aware of the Caucus.
