Creating Change for the Better

Get Involved

Become an NAVC advocate and give our community of pet lovers a voice!

Every day, policymakers at the local, state, and federal level make decisions that could impact the veterinarian community, pets and the people that love them. It’s vital that we monitor and respond to these policies by sharing our feedback and experiences. That’s why NAVC is thrilled to introduce our new advocacy initiative!

What a great initiative! Veterinary team, animals advocates, pets lovers forming one team to defend and protect animals is a dream come true for me.

When you sign-up to become an advocate, you’ll receive emails with updates on proposed legislation, rules, and regulations impacting pet health. Often these emails will include a call-to-action like signing a petition, emailing policymakers, tweeting representatives, making phone calls, and more. You’ll also have exclusive access to advocacy webinars, trainings, and in-person meetings with government officials.

Sign-up to become an NAVC advocate then keep an eye on your inbox for your first opportunity to take action.

Ask Congress to pass the One Health Act

The growth of international travel and trade has increased the spread of zoonotic diseases (diseases passed from animals to humans), resulting in significant human and economic losses.

The One Health Act is an important first step in confronting the spread of zoonotic diseases. Ask Congress to pass this important legislation.

Take Action Now – Support the PAWS Act

The Puppies Assisting Wounded Service members (PAWS) Act seeks to reduce veteran suicides and ensure the well-being of veterans who have already exhausted all other PTSD treatment options by connecting them with service dogs as a form of nontraditional PTSD therapy.

Pet lovers like us must come together and support veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much and are suffering as a result. Act now to bring the healing power of pets to veterans who need them most.
