Improve Your State's Animal Protection Laws!

Contact your elected officials about the importance of having strong, comprehensive animal protection laws!

Sizable majorities of all households now include at least one animal, and polls continue to show that the public cares deeply about these companions and their welfare. The Animal Legal Defense Fund’s seventh annual report, 2013 U.S. Animal Protection Laws Rankings—the longest-running and most authoritative report of its kind—is based on a detailed comparative analysis of the animal protection laws of each jurisdiction. The report recognizes the states where animal law has real teeth, and calls out those where animal abusers get off easy.

While many states continue to make positive progress for animals, there are, unfortunately, still many places where the laws are incapable of providing the legal protections that our country’s animals need and deserve. Even in those jurisdictions that have today’s best laws, there remain many opportunities for improvement.

Contact your state legislators now and urge them to see where your state ranks when it comes to protecting animals!
