Louise Linton has been an animal welfare advocate since childhood. Since moving to the United States from Scotland, Louise has supported numerous animal welfare organizations through her activism, fundraising, and financial contributions. Louise’s passion for animal welfare and conservation has been a moral imperative since childhood, and in recent years has become a large and consuming aspect of her life.
In 2019, she created The Louise Linton Charitable Fund which aims to protect the wellbeing of people and animals both locally and in under-resourced communities around the world. The fund is designed to provide financial support to the existing work of various 501(c)3 organizations who work across the spectrum and across the globe targeting a wide variety of animal welfare issues, be they on land or in the ocean. Louise is using her time in Washington, DC to advocate for animal welfare. Her specific focus in 2020 has been the enforcement of the Animal Welfare Act, as it pertains to puppy mills and large or exotic animals in roadside zoos.
