At the Humane Society Legislative Fund, our mission is to get political for animals—ensuring animals have a voice in the halls of Congress & state legislatures, educating elected officials and the public on animal welfare issues, and electing humane candidates to public office.
The U.S. Congress considers legislation that has far-reaching implications for animals. View current animal-related federal legislation before the U.S. Congress that we're tracking.
Every year the Humane Society Legislative Fund creates a federal Humane Scorecard to give you a snapshot of the animal protection issues considered by the U.S. Congress. It is designed for animal advocates like you to assess the performance of your federal legislators.
The HSLF is the leading political advocacy organization for animals, making endorsements in federal and state races based on candidates' records or positions on animal issues, rather than on political party or affiliation.
