Pass a national animal cruelty law

No animal should be crushed, burned, or impaled -- and yet there are people in our country who engage in these awful acts of cruelty. Take action to support the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act, which will make it a federal crime to commit malicious cruelty to an animal anywhere the federal government has jurisdiction.
