ANIMAL RIGHTS

As a member of the Animal Protection Caucus, I am deeply concerned about the welfare of animals, and I am committed to ensuring that we fulfill our obligations to protect them from indignity, pain and suffering. There is never an excuse for the mistreatment of animals, and it is our responsibility to ensure that all animals are approached with the dignity and respect they deserve. Unfortunately, animals are often subjected to cruel handling in a variety of ways.

I hold a perfect '100+' rating from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), because I remain committed to protecting the dignity of animals. I earned special recognition from HSUS for my leadership on global animal poaching; my Global Anti-Poaching Act, which I introduced with my colleague Ed Royce, would tighten restrictions on the illicit hunting and trafficking of endangered wildlife. My Global Anti-Poaching Act was signed into law this past October.
