Promoting animal welfare and protecting animals from cruelty should be a nonpartisan issue. In Congress, I will support legislation that will:

  • Preserve our national parks and protect the habitats of the animals.
  • Combat international wildlife trafficking and secure the U.S. market for illegal wildlife products.
  • Protect pets and domesticated animals by strengthening regulations of harmful commercial breeding facilities and supporting the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act.
  • Encouraging farms to raise animals humanely and work to eliminate the use of antibiotics in farm animals for non-therapeutic reasons.
