We care deeply about animal welfare and will fight against harmful policies that could roll back recent progress.
At this pivotal time in our nation, we must send a message to the new administration — we are a strong and powerful American movement.
We are made up of members of all political affiliations united in our determination to protect animals. We care deeply about animal welfare and will fight against harmful policies that could roll back recent progress, including protections for endangered wolves in the Great Lakes and for wolves and other predators on federal lands in Alaska; the bans on horse slaughter and horse soring; federal, state and local laws on animal welfare and agriculture; and more.
Please send a message to the White House to let the new administration know that you care about animals and to urge them to protect animal welfare.
Dear President Trump,
Millions of Americans care about the welfare of animals — pets are a $56 billion industry and companies are increasingly adopting policies to create a humane economy. It's more clear than ever before — animal welfare is good for the bottom line and concern for animals is an issue that cuts across party lines.
Joining with the members and supporters of the nonpartisan Humane Society of the United States, I urge you uphold and advance the principles of the humane economy and to protect the progress made in recent years — using your authority to enact policies that are good for animals and good for the American economy.
Our nation embraces innovation — just as the automobile replaced horses as our mode of transportation, the companies that reflect American values of innovation and kindness are thriving. McDonald's, Walmart, SeaWorld, Armani and others are making great strides, and we need a partner in the White House to advance these issues and to oppose efforts to turn back the clock.
Mr. President, please pledge your support to the great American causes of caring for our animal companions, preserving the wildlife who enrich our lives, showing mercy and compassion to animals raised for food, committing to 21st century science and moving away from antiquated animal models, and protecting the welfare of America's horses.
I urge you to protect the progress we've made and continue working to put an end to all forms of animal cruelty, abuse and neglect.
