We are pleased to report that help is on the way
. Yesterday, Congress passed the 2020 Appropriations bill.
Due to the efforts of the Alliance’s federal lobbyist, the federal appropriations bill contains language that would require USDA to make public all Animal Welfare Act inspection reports.
In addition, at the Alliance’s urging, Congress instructed USDA to once again
documenting all Animal Welfare Act non-compliances observed by USDA officials.
USDA was ignoring violations and refusing to cite inhumane dog breeders, instead, referring to the violations as “teachable moments.”
Thanks for your support this year in our continuing efforts to ensure the adequate enforcement of our animal welfare laws!
