  • The Veto Heard 'Round the State: A Look at How Texas Animals Fared During the 87th Legislative Session and Working Together for the Animals

    Unity For A Solution hosts special guests, Shelby Bobosky, Executive Director, and Stacy Sutton Kerby, Director of Government Relations for the Texas Humane Legislation Network for a fun and informative evening to discuss how Texas animals fared during the 87th Legislative Session. There will be a joint presentation taking a deeper look at the bills brought this session, what bills passed and failed and how those laws will change the landscape for animal control, animal shelters, rescuers, and courthouses. We will also examine the veto heard 'round the state, the difficulty in passing animal welfare legislation, and the importance of organizations coming together to effectuate change for thousands of animals through the passage of one law.

  • I’m concerned about the new “safe outdoor” bill missing the item on tethering during hurricanes and tropical storms. Will this be allowed with the new bill? Will there be a provision for this?

    IMPORTANT: IF YOU ARE TRYING TO REPORT A NEGLECT OR ABUSE SITUATION, CONTACT YOUR LOCAL HUMANE SOCIETY, LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY, OR LOCAL ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER - DO NOT LEAVE A MESSAGE FOR A THLN MEMBER AS WE ARE A LEGISLATIVE ORGANIZATION, NOT AN ENFORCEMENT AGENCY.

    THLN's purpose is to pass effective legislation for the animals in the Texas Legislature.  We do not have the resources to deal directly with animal cruelty or adoption issues, but we can recommend several organizations that do.
