His record on dramatically reducing euthanizing unwanted animals and raising adoption numbers, made San Antonio an exemplary city for animal care & compassion.😻 https://t.co/SPNqpUscC9 Julián Castro 6 hours ago:   Monday Aug 19 - 8:25pm RT @Alyssa_Milano: I LOVE this candidate.

🐴 End the slaughter of horses for human food
🐴 Ban doping
🐴 End "soring," the abuse of horses to affect their gait Julián Castro 11 hours ago:   Monday Aug 19 - 3:54pm Family farms need our support. Animal welfare is linked to sustainable farming practices and climate change.
I would strengthen animal welfare and transparency standards on factory farms, ban cosmetic testing on animals, and support independent family farms. Julián Castro 11 hours ago:   Monday Aug 19 - 3:54pm As president, I would advance animal welfare across the country. We would end the practice of euthanizing healthy domestic dogs and cats in shelters.
Instead, we'd invest in a national program to spay and neuter animals. And animal cruelty would become a federal crime. Julián Castro 11 hours ago:   Monday Aug 19 - 3:54pm Today we're announcing a new policy: PAW (Protecting Animals and Wildlife). It's about pets, farm animals, wild animals, and endangered species. They're our friends and our inspiration, and we ought to treat them with respect.
