USA: Urge Your Representative to Join the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus!
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.
There are currently more than 150 representatives in the Caucus; that’s a great starting point! Of course, this means that there are more than 200 House members not involved with the Caucus. We’re confident that many of them are animal lovers—likely with pets of their own—who would join if asked. Your own representative may not know about the Caucus yet, but as a constituent, you are in the best position to help make him or her aware of the Caucus.
