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.

On July 10, the Senate failed to secure the required 60 votes for passage of the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act. This bill, opposed by the Animal Welfare Institute and countless other animal protection and conservation groups, would have had substantial and direct adverse impacts on wildlife, public health, and existing conservation efforts by weakening protections offered by the MMPA and TSCA.
