 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.

      Why do you work against causes that are ethical and humane? How do you sleep at night?

      Animals need to be protected from unethical practices. We are there only voice. Mistreating animals for profit or any other reason is EVIL and must be stopped
