It’s Time to Pass the HEART Act!

When federal law enforcement busts a dogfighting operation, rescued dogs can be held for months or years as “evidence” while court cases drag on. Even with the best care, many dogs suffer further as their stress and behavior issues spiral downward. What they need are real homes and companionship.

We can help fix this problem by ensuring that dogs rescued during fighting investigations are moved through the system quickly. Passage of the HEART (Help Extract Animals from Red Tape) Act will reduce unnecessary delays in the rehoming of victims rescued in federal cases. Another plus: the bill enables the reimbursement for the costs of caring for these animals.

This bill needs to pass the Senate and House Judiciary Committees before Congress can vote to make it law. Speak up today: Sign our petition to the committees’ leaders asking them to support the HEART Act and move the bill to a final vote.
