CVA's 2023 Legislative Priorities


The 2023 session of the CT General Assembly begins on January 4.  CT Votes for Animals' Board of Directors established the following as its priorities for the upcoming session.    

  • Expand Desmond’s Law to include all animals

  • Promote non-lethal methods for Peaceful Co-Existence with CT’s Black Bears and stop any efforts for a bear hunt in CT

  • Ban the sale of inhumane and commercially bred dogs, cats and rabbits from CT pet shops.

  • Close CT’s statutory loophole so Greyhound or live dog racing never returns to CT. 

  • Stop the use of second generation rodenticides to protect birds of prey and other wildlife.  

  • Ban the use of wild and exotic animals in circuses and traveling acts
