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.

Spotlight On

Refuge from Cruel Trapping Act - Photo by Javier Sanchez

The Refuge from Cruel Trapping Act has been introduced in both the US House of Representatives and the Senate by Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ). This bill would prohibit the use of body-gripping traps within the National Wildlife Refuge System (NWRS). Please email, call or write your representative and senators today and urge them to cosponsor H.R. 2016 or S. 1081.
