The Animal Welfare Huddle is committed to the well being and humane treatment of animals. We believe all living creatures should be treated with compassion as a great benefit to the animal and to the person. The WISE Animal Welfare Huddle supports the legislative agenda of the Humane Society and Maryland Votes for Animals. If you would like to join our huddle, please email MarylandWISEwomen@gmail.com.
2020 Legislative Priorities for WISE Animal Welfare Huddle
Ban on Cosmetics Testing on Animals (SB 729) – This bill would prevent companies from selling cosmetics that have been newly tested on animals. More info: https://www.wbal.com/article/431438/3/bill-to-be-introduced-in-annapolis-would-ban-animal-testing-of-cosmetics
Ban on Wildlife Killing Contests (HB 863) – This bill would prohibit the random killing of mammals in wildlife killing contests, where the sole purpose of the event is to kill the largest number of animals possible, often for cash or guns. The bodies of these animals are usually left or discarded, leaving their young to starve. More information: http://www.projectcoyote.org/endkillingcontests/
