Upcoming Events

We are very committed to protecting the health and safety of our supporters. After all, we can’t take care of Texas animals if we don’t first take care of ourselves! With that in mind, we are keeping a close eye on coronavirus updates and making daily decisions about whether or not to proceed with planned meetings and events. If we do postpone or cancel a planned event, we will post a notice on our facebook page, our website, and our twitter account. We will also personally notify the people who signed up via RSVP.

    Sessions will address trending legal issues such as service dogs, animal cruelty cases, dangerous dogs and local laws related to hold times for animals at the shelter. Attendees will also learn what laws passed at the Austin Capitol in 2019 and how to help advance local animal laws. The day will end with an Ask an Animal Lawyer presentation.
