Ke$ha’s Year of the Animal
Members of Congress return today from a two-week recess, and they have a message waiting for them from global pop icon and dedicated animal advocate Ke$ha. The mega-star was in the nation’s capital recently, and she recorded a video calling on Congress to make animal protection a top priority. You can watch Ke$ha’s video here.
In 2013, lawmakers will consider a number of important animal protection issues, such as making it a crime to attend and bring children to dogfights and cockfights, phasing out the use of chimpanzees in invasive experiments, addressing the criminal abuse of Tennessee walking horses, and improving the treatment of egg-laying hens. Some bills have already been introduced this year—to crack down on animal fighting, puppy mills, and horse slaughter—and others are expected to be introduced soon.
You can join Ke$ha and help make 2013 the year of the animal. Take action and contact your members of Congress today.
