Protect dogs from cruel puppy mills!

Puppy mills are horrific commercial breeding facilities where puppies are ‘mass-produced’ for sale through pet stores, the internet, or to the public. They live in squalid conditions with little to no veterinary care or human interaction. Tell your Rep to support the WOOF Act and the Puppy Protection Act, which will finally crack down on these cruel puppy mills! [image credit: Jamie Linder/The HSUS]

End the dog and cat meat trade!

Around 30 million dogs and untold numbers of cats are subjected to the brutal dog and cat meat industry globally every year. The Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act, would amend the federal Animal Welfare Act to prohibit domestic slaughter, trade, and import/export of dogs and cats for human consumption, and establish penalties for violators.
