    Protecting Texas animals through advocacy, education and legislation

Why We're Different

We at the Texas Humane Legislation Network - a 501c4 - are working to stop abuse before it starts. While thousands of caring citizens spend countless hours rescuing dogs from heavy chains - without strong laws in place, abusers can continue to replace the animal at the end of the chain just broken. We advocate for strong, enforceable laws that will prohibit cruel acts against animals and give law enforcement and prosecutors the tools they need to bring justice in the courtroom.

Our IRS status as a 501c4 allows us to be different.  While there are *thousands* of 501c3s in Texas formed to help animals, they are *VERY* limited in how much they can lobby, and are outright prohibited from participating in any partisan activities. THLN is the *ONLY* state-based non-profit that can lobby for animals in the capitol and ensure animals are considered at the ballot box.  This means we can serve as the strongest voice at the capitol-- not just for the animals but for shelters, rescues and all the citizens who work to help them too.
