Heavy chains, embedded collars, cold winter nights, brutal summer heat, days without food or water, open wounds that go untreated, and no help in sight. This is life for thousands of chained dogs. Texas has no enforceable law to prevent this cruelty and neglect. But with your help, we can pass a humane tethering bill that will ban heavy chains, mandate minimum tether length and proper collars, and require adequate shelter, food, and water.
Your holiday gift can make a world of difference for tethered dogs in Texas by helping THLN pass a statewide ban on inhumane tethering in the next legislative session.
Quick Summary: Soring is the intentional infliction of pain on the hooves and legs of certain show horses done solely to exaggerate their gait in order to win prizes and money.

In 1975, the Texas Humane Legislation Network was started by a small group of individuals with a dream as big as the Lone Star State itself: to make the humane treatment of animals the law. Whether they be companion animals, working animals, animals used in entertainment, exotic animals or wildlife, we at THLN believe all animals deserve protection from abuse and cruelty. This year, as we look back on 40 years of service to Texas animals, and celebrate dozens of legislative victories that have touched many thousands of lives, we’re also looking to the future. Join us - Donate - Volunteer - Advocate with Us - and Together, we can Break the Chain of Cruelty and make Texas more humane!
