Also and this is the most important do lo cost spay and neuter programs as well as vaccination venues. Really important for our animals to be cared for. Also establish feeding for lo money households so they don’t have to dump their beloved animals. It can happen…we have done it in the Denver area and beyond. Please contact Eileen Lambert@pet pantry Co….She has changed the world in our state. Colorado. I am sure she would love the challenge. Lots of corporations wanting to help…Please engage.
PETITION: TELL LEGISLATURE DOGS DESERVE ADEQUATE SHELTER
Every year we receive hundreds of calls and emails about dogs left outside suffering in the extreme Texas weather. We know law enforcement, the media, and everyday Texans are sometimes helpless to do anything when they see a dog succumbing to a heat stroke.
That’s partly because every jurisdiction in Texas handles these cases different. Why? Because we do not have a single definition of “adequate shelter” that everyone can use.
If the horror stories of animals freezing to death or dying in the Texas heat haunt you, you can do something NOW.
Sign our petition: tell Texas legislators dogs deserve adequate shelter.
Passing our tethering bill next session will allow us to include a statewide definition of "adequate shelter" as a minimum standard of shelter that all pet owners should have to meet. Once we have this definition in place, local law enforcement and animal control officers will be able to act swiftly.
Please help us change the fate of Texas animals. They can’t afford to wait.
