Support the Call for an End to the Global Dog and Cat Meat Trade

April 4, 2018

We write to ask for your support of H.Res.401, a bipartisan resolution that calls for an end to the global dog and cat meat trade. An estimated 30 million dogs and a great number of cats are killed annually around the world for the dog and cat meat trade.
A considerable number of these dogs and cats are stolen pets, still wearing collars when they reach the slaughterhouses. Many of these animals die during transport to the slaughterhouses after days or weeks without food or water, and others suffer illness
and injury during transport. Additionally, the capture, transport, and butchering of dogs and cats and the consumption of their meat poses health risks such as rabies infection to traders, slaughterhouse workers, and consumers.

Become a Cosponsor of the Retain Act, H.R. 1185

April 2, 2018

Offshoring, the practice of moving production to foreign locales while continuing to sell goods to the U.S. market, is a pervasive feature of the U.S. economy today. Market pressures drive businesses to seek reduced production costs, often in places where
standards of living and protections for workers and the environment are more lax than in the United States. Hundreds of American corporations are shipping thousands of jobs to foreign countries every year. Shifting of jobs occurs in all industry sectors including
manufacturing, services, supply chains, and all others.
