  • Shelby did a presentation at the Canton, TX Rotary Club yesterday. Canton has the misfortune of having Dog Alley in the city. We did this presentation to hopefully open the eyes of our city and county leaders on how to make the county of Van Zandt known for animal welfare instead of animal abuse. Animal welfare will take the combined efforts of everyone to improve this situation.

    This page is for our supporters to share the story of how animals have touched their lives and inspired them to use their voice to speak for the voiceless. For comments, concerns or questions for The Network, please use our Contact Us page.

  • SIGN OUR PETITION: Tell Texas Legislators Dogs Deserve Adequate Shelter

    Jack.jpg

    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 differently. 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.

    Please help us change the fate of Texas animals. They can’t afford to wait.

    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.
