114th Congress -Animal Protection Caucus

US Congressional Animal Protection Caucus, 114th Congress Co-Chairs: Reps. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) and Mike Fitzpatrick (R-PA) ASPCA Position: Support Action Needed: Please take a moment to urge your representative to join the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus, a group of U.S. representatives committed to advancing animal welfare legislation in Congress. The Congressional Animal Protection Caucus is a beacon of hope for animals in Washington, D.C. This caucus is a bipartisan group of U.S. representatives (hailing from all corners of the nation) who are interested in promoting and advancing commonsense, humane animal welfare laws. A caucus is not a committee—it’s more like a congressional extra-curricular. Legislators don’t have to join any caucus; they do so because they want to. With your help, the ASPCA hopes to increase awareness of and membership in the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus, which we think will help speed the passage of animal-friendly federal legislation. There are currently more than 115 representatives in the Caucus, and that’s a great foundation! Of course, that also means that there are nearly 300 members of the House who are not involved with the Caucus, but we’re confident that many of them are animal lovers—likely with pets of their own—who would join if asked. Your own rep may not know about the Caucus yet—but as a constituent, you are in the best position to help make him or her aware of the Caucus. What You Can Do Send a quick email to your U.S. representative in Washington, D.C., asking him or her to consider joining the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus. Our system will identify who represents you and provide a pre-drafted letter once you submit your address. Please use the space provided in our letter to tell your representative why animal protection is important to you. US Congressional Animal Protection Caucus, 114th Congress Co-Chairs: Reps.
