Pets & Cruelty
Caged cat

Americans spend about $60 billion on pets annually—a sign of just how important our four-legged friends are in our lives. Dogs, cats and other pets deserve protections from cruelty and abuse.

We work to stop abusive puppy mills, large-scale breeding facilities that keep animals in tiny cages often with no medical care or human interaction. We also work to crack down on spectators who attend dogfights and cockfights, along with those who expose children to these cruel spectacles.

dogHelp abused animals: Pass the HEART Act

Help abused animals by passing the Help Extract Animals from Red Tape (HEART) Act (H.R. 398/S. 2633), which will help animals caught up in abuse cases by shortening the amount of time they are in the shelters and shifting the costs of their care to those who committed the crimes.
