Animal Welfare Advocate

Our Vision: Animals are a major part of many people's families. In Maryland, we need to ensure that our pets and wildlife are being cared for in appropriate manner at shelters, pet stores, and at home. 

How We Get There: As State Delegate, Christian Miele authored and passed major animal welfare reform legislation, the Animal Shelter Standards Act, that improved the level of care at every taxpayer funded shelter in Maryland. Christian also proudly supported the ban on the use of Puppy Mills. 

As State Senator, Christian plans to introduce legislation to create a registry of convicted animal abusers, so that adoption agencies and pet stores have the ability to screen potential customers.
