Lobby Day 2015

Wednesday, May 13

What is Lobby Day?

Humane Lobby Day is an event sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States in the Massachusetts state capital. Citizen animal advocates like you gather to learn and practice lobbying for animal protection laws at the state level. This full-day event includes a lobbying workshop and an overview of relevant bills in the MA state legislature.

Local animal welfare organizations including the Animal Rescue League of Boston also participate in this exciting day. We will have representatives of our organizations at the Massachusetts Humane Lobby Day on May 13. They will share important information with Massachusetts state legislators regarding the ARL’s work to increase awareness for important animal welfare, safety, and health issues.

If you would like to participate in Humane Lobby Day 2015, please visit The Humane Society of the United States website to learn more or to register as a volunteer.

What is the ARL’s Legislative Agenda?

In January, the Massachusetts General Court began its 2015-2016 session. The ARL will continue to support legislation that enhances and improves protections for animals, and to oppose reforms that endanger the welfare of animals in Massachusetts.

We will keep you updated on the status of legislation impacting animal welfare in Massachusetts. Check our social media channels and email alerts and action items for information about how you can help as different pieces of legislation progress through the General Court.
