Please show your appreciation to one or more of the Missouri legislators who defended the animals during the
2016 legislative session!
Thanks to the efforts of a handful of lawmakers, our animal welfare laws were preserved this year in the Missouri General Assembly. In the midst of the recent assault by the Legislature on our laws protecting animals, there were a few courageous legislators who fought to defend Missouri’s animals and safeguard our anti-cruelty laws, new puppy mill law, and protections for animals confined in factory farms. We are very grateful to the legislators listed above who struggled to defend Missouri’s animals and safeguard our animal protection laws.
We feel these legislators are particularly deserving of appreciation for standing up to corporate agribusiness, the puppy mill industry and the factory farming industry. These legislators merit special credit as they tirelessly fought to ensure the humane treatment of all animals in the state.
