Your Message

Dear Secretary Vilsack,

The Humane Society of the United States and partner groups filed a legal petition with the USDA in September, urging the agency to improve the standards of care for dogs by updating the Animal Welfare Act regulations.

The requested changes would provide dogs at commercial breeding facilities with more exercise, safer housing, better vet care, would limit the number of times a dog can be bred and require breeders to work with rescues to find homes for retired or unwanted dogs rather than destroying them.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
