Decision Maker Response

Alcee L. Hastings’s response

Jun 7, 2017 — I am deeply appreciative to the thousands of supporters who are working tirelessly to end the dog and cat meat trade in the United States. The fact that this petition already has over 90,000 supporters is a true testament to the importance of this issue.

In Congress, I will continue to gather cosponsors and urge House Leadership to bring this legislation to the floor for a vote.

Together, we will send a strong message that animal cruelty is simply unacceptable.
