Working with Legislator

Animals can’t vote, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have a voice in the political process. You can give animals that voice! This advocacy toolkit will walk you through the basics of how to lobby for pro-animal legislation.



The word “lobbying” may have some negative connotations — but it’s good and important to let lawmakers know that you care about laws affecting animals, that you want better animal protection laws.


By sending letters and emails supporting pro-animal measures that are on the legislative agenda, you can help convince these politicians that the voters who put them in office want to see animals protected from cruelty and neglect. And if there are no pro-animal items on the agenda, you can help change that, too. Tell lawmakers what types of animal protection laws you would like to see introduced and passed.
