Advocate for Animals

The MSPCA’s legislative and public policy work is essential to bring about long-term change for animals. We work locally and nationally to improve animal protection laws and regulations. This work is sustained through our volunteer Animal Action Team members who write letters, make phone calls, attend lobby days at the State House and meet with legislators to help improve the lives of animals.
