Shelby Bobosky

  • Lubbock Area Public Meeting

    The Texas Humane Legislation Network cordially invites you to a gathering to discuss the 2019 legislative session and how you can get political for animals. Many animal welfare bills have already been filed to advance the humane treatment of animals this session and THLN will be prioritizing bills to fix our broken statute regulating dog shelter and restraint and crack down on predatory practices at pet stores.  

    Shelby Bobosky, Esq., Board President, will present an introduction to THLN and take an in depth look at the bills relating to our companion animals and how you can effectuate change for thousands of animals this session.

    This event is open to the public, but we do ask that you RSVP for a ticket so we can ensure seats and refreshments for all.

  • Thank you Rep. Moody for not giving up on strenthening the Texas animal cruelty law. It was a tough fight and we appreciate you! Texas needs
    more legislators like you that understand the link between animal cruelty and human violence and by protecting the animals, we are protecting humans as well. We look forward to working with you next session!


    Jack.jpgEvery 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.

    Sign and share our petition today.

    While we are a non-profit registered with the IRS, our tax exemption status is a 501c4, not a 501c3, thus our expenses are tax deductible, but our income is not.  This means we can’t offer a tax deduction for donations.
