Your Organization Can Help Make the Difference
for Animals

Lend your organization’s endorsement to our bills.

Are you a spokesperson for an organization and qualified to speak on its behalf? If so, we need your help.

One of our most powerful advocacy tools is the ability to show legislators that organizations like yours support the bills we are working to pass. It lets them know the legislation is supported by other experts on the various reforms we have proposed and championed.

Endorsing legislation that will improve the lives of animals — and often, of people, too — is easy. Simply click the link for the topic to which you wish to lend your organization’s endorsement. You can read more about the legislation and provide the basic details we will use to demonstrate your endorsement to lawmakers and other officials.

If you have any questions or would like resources to help your advocacy on these issues, please contact Natalie Ahwesh, director of state affairs at

The FDA Modernization Act 3.0, H.R. 7248, requires FDA to publish a final rule to implement the FDAMA 2.0, establish a clear pathway for the qualification of nonclinical testing methods, and ensure agency transparency and accountability. This is the logical extension of what Congress intended in passing FDAMA 2.0.

The FIGHT Act, H.R. 2742/S. 1529, would enhance enforcement opportunities under current dogfighting and cockfighting including:  banning all simulcasting and gambling on animal fights in the U.S.; halt the shipment of mature roosters (it is already illegal to ship dogs through the mail); allow private right of action against illegal animal fighters; and enhance forfeiture provisions to include real property used in the commission of an animal fighting crime.

The ADD SOY Act, H.R. 1619, would require public schools to offer soy milk to kids participating in the National School Lunch Program and directs the USDA to fully reimburse schools for the cost of the soy milk provided.

The Kangaroo Protection Act would establish new federal crimes related to commercial activities involving kangaroo products. Specifically, the bill would prohibit importing kangaroos for commercial purposes and using kangaroo products during interstate commerce.

The PIGS Act, H.R. 2939, would eliminate the use of gestation stalls for pigs in the United States, sparing countless thousands of animals from extreme confinement, pain and disease.

The OFF Act, H.R. 1249/S. 557, establishes restrictions and requirements for checkoff programs and prohibits boards established to carry out a checkoff program or a USDA order issued under a checkoff program from entering into a contract or agreement to carry out program activities with a party that engages in activities to influence any government policy or action that relates to agriculture.

Bear Poaching Elimination Act, H.R. 3518, would put an end to the wasteful and inhumane practice of poaching American bears for their gall bladders and their bile. By stopping the trade in their parts, this will help conserve bear populations in North America and throughout the world.

The LEAD Act would stop the use of lead ammunition on federal wildlife refuges. Lead rounds and fragments of them are often consumed by other animals who feast on carrion remnants, poisoning them and the animals who may in turn eat them. Lead toxicity is markedly on the rise.

The ACE Act is a common-sense bill that animal advocates, domestic violence workers, law enforcement, and the average U.S. citizen can agree is the right policy for the United States. In the effort to help enact the legislation into federal law, humane organizations and law enforcement agencies across the nation are endorsing the bill. Please add your agency/organization's support.

The Minks in Narrowly Kept Spaces Are Superspreaders Act would ban mink farming in the United States. Mink farms are inhumane, with these wild, solitary, territorial animals kept in small, barren cages that create such stressful and unnatural conditions that the animals exhibit high levels of aggression, including cannibalism.
