Colorado Voters for Animals

The mission of Colorado Voters for Animals is to protect animals through public policy and to support candidates who are committed to animal protection.
Unlike rescues, sanctuaries, and shelters that deal with the aftermath of animal cruelty and neglect, Colorado Voters for Animals focuses on the root cause by identifying and working with lawmakers to introduce and pass sensible animal welfare and protection laws. Past efforts have included prohibiting wild animals (lions, tigers, elephants, etc.) from being used for entertainment, e.g., circuses, legislation that allows judges to prohibit convicted animal abusers from owning animals for a specified period of time, and expanding restraining orders to include pets, to name a few of the organization's accomplishments.
