Since 1951, the Animal Welfare Institute has been dedicated to reducing animal suffering caused by people.

We seek better treatment of animals everywhere - in the laboratory, on the farm, in commerce, at home,
and in the wild.

Please Tell Congress to Protect Traveling Exotic Animals - Photo by Amy Claxton

Humanitarians: Help improve the lives of animals in traveling circuses. Please tell your US representative to support H.R. 4525. Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) has introduced H.R. 4525, the Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act, which would restrict the use of a wild or exotic animal in an act if that animal had been on the road during the 15 days prior to the time the animal was to perform.
