Humane Lobby Day

Speak up for animals in your state! Your voice matters and your legislators need to hear from you. If you care about animals, then join us for a Humane Lobby Day near you. You’ll meet with your district's senators and representatives for support of animal rights and animal welfare legislation. You’ll also connect with other people from so many walks of life—all with the same goal of saving animals.
