Urge Utah legislators to vote NO on House Bill 476.

UT: Protect humane progress for Utah pets!

UPDATE, MARCH 7, 2022: Thank you for taking action! Utah House Bill 476 failed to advance.


Utah has made a lot of progress towards the humane treatment of animals. Unfortunately, that progress is being threatened by Utah House Bill 476.

House Bill 476 would prevent cities and counties from enacting ordinances that protect animals against cruelty and abuse.

HB 476 would, for instance, overturn all existing ordinances in Utah that currently prevent the sale of pets sourced from out-of-state puppy and kitten mills. If this bill were to pass, decades of work towards the humane protection of pets and animals would be undone.

TAKE ACTION: Protect Utah pets! Urge your state legislators to vote NO on HB 476.
