Action Alert

Massachusetts: Ask Your Legislators to Strengthen Animal Cruelty Laws

This action is for Massachusetts residents only.

The 2023–24 Massachusetts legislative session is underway, and your help is needed to ensure that updating the Commonwealth’s animal protection laws is a priority. Ask your state legislators to co-sponsor the Humane Protection of Animals Act (S.1142/H.1718).

This omnibus legislation will give law enforcement, animal control officers, judges, and district attorneys more options when it comes to addressing situations involving animals before they become life threatening, and then provide pre- and post-conviction options during trial and sentencing.

Your state legislators need to know that you believe the Humane Protection of Animals Act should be a legislative priority. Contact your legislator today!
