Animal Welfare

The way we treat animals reflects the values that we hold and has a large impact on the livability and vitality of our communities. Earl is a strong advocate for the protection of wild and domestic animals and is recognized as one of the foremost advocates for animal welfare in Congress. He also works to protect the habitat of threatened and endangered species.

Earl’s support for animal rights has earned him a 100 percent rating from the Humane Society in 2018.  He co-chairs the bipartisan Congressional Animal Protection Caucus (CAPC) along with Rep. Buchanan (R-FL).
