Tell Iowa Rep. Steve King to Stop Opposing Animal Protection

Tell Iowa Rep. Steve King to Stop Opposing Animal Protection

    1. Sponsored by

      Humane Society Legislative Fund

Iowa Rep. Steve King has one of the worst records on animal welfare in the entire Congress, and the influence of his extreme anti-animal views extends well beyond the borders of his home state of Iowa. King led the fight to try to block legislation that would crack down on the barbaric practices of dogfighting and cockfighting nationwide, and has consistently voted against even the most basic protections for animals, such as including pets in disaster planning.

If his voting record isn’t bad enough, Rep. King is one of the most senior Republican members of the powerful House Agriculture Committee. So many pieces of federal animal protection legislation go to this committee—dealing with puppy mills, dogfighting and cockfighting, horse abuse, and others—and can be bottled up by King and other enemies of animal protection. Given his powerful committee post, King’s anti-animal positions affect animal welfare nationwide. He recently used his position on this committee to introduce an amendment to the Farm Bill seeking to nullify state and local laws dealing with animal welfare and food safety around the country!

Whether you live in California, New York, or anywhere in between, Steve King threatens your rights to protect animals, even in your own state. Please sign our petition today to tell King we won’t stand for his extreme anti-animal agenda anymore.

      This is how we treat these dogs but yet we're the ones that ruin their reputation and the abuse and lack of love that we caused onto them....they need our love not hate that we've caused unto them...I too was ignorant and when I went through my lowest point of my life I decided to give them a chance and I'm blessed to have done so due to the fact that my Pit, KoCo is the neighborhood knuckle head as they called her...goes to show that we are the vicious animals!!!!

      You can tell how a person is by how they treat those that cannot defend themselves. We already know how the Representative treats animals, with the new food safety action we have seen how he feels about ours and our children's health. This is not a man that should be representing us.
