Congressional Animal Protection Caucus helps celebrate shelter animals and rescue groups

WHAT: The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) yesterday joined the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus in hosting “Paws for Love,” an animal adoption event to honor shelter animals and rescue organizations across the country.

“Paws for Celebration invites Republicans and Democrats to come together to celebrate the millions of lovable homeless dogs and cats currently waiting to be adopted,” said Nancy Perry, senior vice president of ASPCA Government Relations. “Animal welfare is a bi-partisan issue, and we stand united in our appreciation of the vital services provided by the thousands of community animal shelters nationwide.”
