USA: Support Animal Protections in the 2023 Budget

Dogs in cage
FY 2023 Federal Budget—Agriculture Appropriations
ASPCA Position: Support

Congress is advancing the bill to fund the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for the 2023 fiscal year.

You can help create a more compassionate world by contacting your legislators today to ask for their support on important spending measures to protect animals, including dogs in puppy mills; horses who may become at risk of slaughter; farmed animals deserving of better lives; and pets caught up in domestic violence cases.

What You Can Do

Please use the form below to email your members of Congress and urge them to:

  • Better protect dogs in puppy mills.
  • Keep the horse slaughter industry OUT of the United States for good.
  • End government funding of cruel “depopulation” of farmed animals.
  • Expand a grant program for domestic violence survivors and their companion animals.
