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.

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This is the perfect time to remind your legislators of the strong relationship between domestic violence and animal abuse, and of the important role companion animals play in the lives of women and families in crisis. Please ask your US senators to cosponsor the Pet and Women Safety (PAWS) Act, S. 322.
