U.S. Congressional Animal Protection Caucus (118th Congress)
ASPCA Position: SupportCo-Chairs: Reps. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), Mike Quigley (D-IL), Sharice Davids (D-KS)
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.
We’re confident that many new Members love animals—especially those with pets of their own—and would join if asked. As a constituent, you are in the best position to help make your U.S. representative aware of the Caucus.
