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

Annual Lobby Day for Animals

Early each year, hundreds of advocates spend the day at the Virginia Capitol and ask their legislators to push for stronger animal protection laws in the Commonwealth.
