Victory! You Helped Pass a Historic Animal Cruelty Law!

Potomac, MD, United States

Nov 27, 2019 — On Monday, President Trump signed the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act into law. This is truly historic. This is the first general federal animal cruelty law in US history, and this new, animal protection law will save lives.

More than than 867,000 of you signed this petition, and you made a difference in the world. You made this petition a success. In fact, each and every one of you that signed the petition should know that this petition was brought up on the floor of congress by Rep. Ted Deutch (Dem), the original co-sponsor of this bill. Your action helped to demonstrate that this bill needed to be a legislative priority. Thank you for doing your part to make this world a better place.

Thank you's are in order for all of co-sponsors of the bill, Vern Buchanon (Rep), one of the original co-sponsors of the bill, Senators Richard Blumenthal (Dem), Dianne Feinstein (Dem), Dick Curban (Dem), and Pat Toomey (Rep). However, a special thank you needs to go to Congressman Ted Deutch (Dem), the original co-sponsor of this bill who worked for years on the passage of this law.

Last, to all of the animal advocates that signed and promoted this petition, shared the petition, and made donations to help spread the petition.... I hope you know how important you were to the petition's success. I am truly grateful. We are all lucky to have people like you in this world. I hope that you know that this victory truly belongs to you.

Congratulations and thank you again to each of you.
