Happy New Year! May 2017 be a kinder year for animals.

As we prepare for an ambitious 2017, we take a look back at everything we’ve been working on over the last year in our 2016 Snapshot. 

The Model Animal Welfare Act is in print!

Now available on our website in print format, purchases of the Model Act enable us to cover international shipping costs to ensure that policymakers, wherever they may be, have this book at their fingertips. Purchase the book here.
