Ive been a member for years and 100% support your efforts here in Texas. I live in Fredericksburg. A new business has moved into the area that is widely known for abusing elephants. They have recently moved here from CA because of the bull hook ban in CA. Now they are located here in Stonewall with 5 elephants that they are showing on their property and allowing rides and people contact with these elephants. They call themselves now “The Preserve”. How can we stop them here in Texas? Have Truck Will Travel LLC is the company name. Owned by Gary & Kari Johnson family. There are many videos and articles on the net about them. ADI, PAWS and other known groups have fought them while they were in CA. Now it is Texas turn to pass a bull hook ban in our great state. I look forward to your reply.I have attached a video made by ADI concerning the treatment of elephants.

SIGN OUR PETITION: Tell Texas Legislators 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 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.
