Biden Signs Five Animal Protection Measures into Law

“Reducing the numbers of animals used in testing, shutting down commercial cub petting operations, halting the use of performance-enhancing drugs in horse racing, and working to combat the massacre of sharks for their fins are good policies for the United States,” said Wayne Pacelle, president at the Center for a Humane Economy. “These laws, individually and collectively, help make our nation more humane when it comes to our treatment of animals.”

“We applaud President Biden, the White House, and the 117th Congress for enacting the most comprehensive legislative victories for animals of any Congress in history,” said Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action and an eight-time world champion equestrian. “These new policies will revolutionize the pharmaceutical world, end the ridiculous practices of cub petting and shark finning, and better protect our iconic American equines from doping and long-term abuses that have plagued the equine world for half a century.”
