UVSA is a proud sponsor of 2019’s Pet Night on Capitol Hill which provides an opportunity for members to meet with legislators and staff to discuss issues of concern to the animal care community.

Hosted by the Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) and the Pet Leadership Council (PLC), Pet Night brings the power of pets to Capitol Hill, delivering the message to our elected representatives that pets are important for human health and quality of life. Pet Night convenes elected representatives, industry leaders, the veterinary community, animal welfare advocates and research organizations to learn about the importance of pet ownership in America and the growing scientific evidence that pet ownership leads to improved wellbeing for both people and animals.
