What is the Working Animal Protection Act?
The Working Animal Protection Act, or WAPA, would prohibit an outright ban on any legal animal enterprise utilizing working animals in ranching, service, entertainment, transportation, exhibition, and education. These proposed bills would effectively stop the overwhelming number of bills being pushed by animal extremism that ban carriage horses, race and rodeo animals, exotic animal exhibitions like those seen at Sea World, and circuses.

It is important to know that these bills would not affect animal welfare laws that are already in place. It would also not protect any illegal animal enterprises. In short, these bills would simply protect law-abiding citizens from having their livelihoods taken away by those trying to push the animal rights agenda forward.

Expanding WAPA To Every State
If you believe the Working Animal Protection Act is needed in your state, we urge you to contact your representatives to propose this type of legislation there. This act gives power back to animal owners and animal enthusiasts who believe that owning, utilizing and exhibiting animals is an important part of our American traditions.
