 New website makes it easier to contact Congress on issues

Posted Nov. 29, 2017

The AVMA has launched a new and improved AVMA Congressional Advocacy Network website at to help the veterinary community quickly contact Congress on issues important to the veterinary profession.

The new AVMA CAN website has improved navigation and usability to make it even easier to identify key legislative issues affecting veterinary medicine, quickly personalize and send letters to members of Congress, and look up legislators' contact information. The site also allows veterinarians to share their story with the AVMA on key issues so the Association can provide personal examples of the impact of legislation on constituents. In addition, the site is more mobile-friendly.

More than 30,000 veterinarians, veterinary students, and friends of the veterinary community have joined AVMA CAN to stay abreast of legislative issues that impact veterinary medicine. A sign-up link appears at the top of the CAN website.
