Save Fish and Reptiles From Unrestrained Cruelty and Abuse
Target: Congressman Michael Conaway, Chairman of the House Committee on Agriculture
Goal: Don’t allow cold-blooded animals to be abused and exploited for private gain.
The Animal Welfare Act of 1966 remains the only piece of major federal U.S. legislation that affords protections to animals. While the law ensures that animals dealers, researchers, and exhibitors be licensed and meet certain standards for animal housing and care, the Animal Welfare Act currently only covers warm-blooded mammals. Despite numerous revisions to the law since its enactment, cold-blooded animals remain excluded. These animals deserve respect and protection as well.
