The Colorado Legislative Animal Welfare (CLAW) Caucus dates back to 2011, and was modeled after the Congressional Friends of Animals (CFA) Caucus, now the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus (CAPC), a federal bipartisan organization committed to raising awareness of animal welfare issues in Congress. CLAW is a nonpartisan caucus that serves to educate and improve communication among legislators and the public, bringing together those who are interested in animal issues, both inside and outside of government.
CLAW has grown to the largest caucus at the Capitol, which speaks to the importance that legislators and the public place on animal protection issues in our state.
Caucus Chairs: Sens. Joann Ginal & Larry Liston, Reps. Monica Duran, Matt Soper
