HR 6720 - The Dog and Cat Meat Prohibition Act
Prohibiting the consumption of Dogs and Cats in the United States
In December of 2018 The Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act was signed into law as part of the Farm Bill. This was AHL’s first legislative victory. This Act bans the shipping, transporting, moving, delivering, receiving, possessing, purchasing, selling, or donating of a cat or dog for slaughtering for human consumption.
The Los Angeles City Fur Ban
Bans the Sale and manufacture of fur Products in Los ANgeles
After witnessing the cruelty in the industry through our investigative efforts, we decided to work towards an end to the fur industry. Los Angeles City Council has passed the ban and Los Angeles- The second largest city int he country- will soon prohibit the sale and manufacture of new fur products.
Animal Hope in Legislation works directly with Congressional figures, Senators, and State Legislators. The change we strive to make not only impacts animals, but creates a framework that teaches the communities how to be more compassionate.
Legislation provides an outline for society, teaching us what is acceptable. While most of our work centers on animal welfare, we believe that the more compassionate we are to animals, the more compassionate we become to ourselves and other people.
