Take Action: Oppose HR 4879/HR 3599 and Support Animal Protection

Update: This action is closed.

Many critical laws protecting animals, including those regulating factory farms and preventing the sale of dog meat, are in danger. Representative Steve King (R-IA) is trying to pass HR 4879/HR 3599, the so-called “States’ Rights Elimination Act,” which would undo many of the legislative victories you’ve achieved for animal protection.

Tell your legislators that you oppose HR 4879/HR 3599.

HR 4879/HR 3599 takes away your state’s ability to enact animal welfare laws protecting animals and consumers from food produced in unsafe conditions. Rep. King tried to pass similar legislation a few years ago, and animal advocates like you fought back. Congress needs to hear from you again.

Please take a few minutes to make a short, respectful phone call to your U.S. Representative and two U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121. A sample message: “I am _____ (name of legislator)’s constituent. I am calling to ask you to oppose HR 4879/HR 3599, sponsored by Representative King, and instead support legislation that protects animals.”

To make sure your message is heard, send a follow-up email message in support of states’ rights to protect animals and consumers.

Thank you for helping us protecting our state and local animal welfare laws.
