Dogs chained up in the recent cold should tell Texans all they need to know about the need to reform tethering laws. It is time to put dog abusers behind bars!
I just got off the phone with the Bill King for Houston (Mayor) campaign. I had the good fortune of speaking with Sonya (a big-time animal rights activist) and raised the issue of helping to prepare a position paper (a one-pager) that lays out Bill’s views.
Based on what I have read, Bill seems very much in alignment with the reforms being advocated for by animal rights activists across Texas. Concerned activists simply need to let Houston voters know about Bill’s views relative to other Mayoral candidates.
Does THLN have any model legislation available with supporting documents that may be used – by whatever candidates – to state their positions clearly regarding animal rights?
Thank you for all you do!
