#BeCrueltyFree

No animal should have to suffer just for the sake of lipstick. Contact your legislators today and ask them to support the Humane Cosmetics Act to end cosmetics testing on animals! [image credit: Tetra Images/Alamy]

TAKE ACTION

We need a national animal cruelty law

All 50 states have felony penalties for malicious cruelty, and there are federal statutes on animal fighting and crush videos. But there is no federal law for malicious cruelty when it involves federal property or interstate commerce, and the PACT Act would close that gap. [image credit: Shutterstock]

ACT NOW

Protect domestic violence victims and their pets

No one should have to choose between leaving an abuser and protecting a beloved pet. Yet far too many women are forced to make this very choice. Ask your legislators to co-sponsor the PAWS Act to help pets and domestic violence victims. [image credit: iStock photo]

THE LATEST FROM HSLF

Donating monthly to HSLF is one of the best ways to ensure we have the resources necessary to keep up the fight to protect animals in Congress and state houses across the country. Please consider becoming a sustaining donor.

The Pet and Women Safety (PAWS) Act would amend the Violence Against Women Act to extend existing federal domestic violence protections to four-legged family members.
