Washington, D.C. – Congressman Colin Allred (TX-32) today announced he earned a 100 from the Humane Society Legislative Fund for his voting record on animal rights, according to the organization’s 2019 legislative scorecard.

“How we treat animals is a reflection of who we are and as a dog owner for most of my life, I’m proud of how far this country has come in our work to protect animals from exploitation or cruelty,” Allred said. “ I am honored to earn a 100 from the Humane Society Legislative Fund because treating animals with dignity and kindness is a bipartisan issue. I look forward to working with my colleagues to ensure our laws reflect these values.”

Allred has cosponsored several bills related to animal safety and welfare in this Congress. This includes the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act, and the Shark Fin Sales Elimination Act, both of which passed the House, as well as the Welfare of Our Friends (WOOF) Act, the PREPARED Act and the Big Cat Public Safety Act.  

The House scorecard highlights measures taken by Congress to address issues such as protecting endangered species and wildlife, ending animal cruelty, big game hunting and funding for programs to aid animals in natural disasters. Allred was one of six members of the Texas delegation who received a 100 score.
