PATCHOGUE, NY – Animal Wellness Action endorsed Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) for re-election in 2020.
“Congressman Zeldin’s outstanding advocacy and leadership on animal welfare issues is indicative of his keen attention to these issues,” said Wayne Pacelle, President, Animal Wellness Action. “We are grateful for his expressions of support for a range of animal welfare policies.”
Animal Wellness Action is a national policy and political organization seeking to advance legal protections for animals. The way we treat animals, as individuals and as a nation, is a measure of our decency. Animal Wellness Action recognizes that cruel and callous treatment of animals is typically entangled with other anti-social behaviors that make our communities less safe.
“Our furry friends are not just companions but also provide services for disabled individuals, law enforcement, and military veterans,” said Congressman Zeldin. “I am proud to have co-sponsored the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act to criminalize animal cruelty, which was signed into law last year.”
