  • What are your top animal protection priorities for 2018?

    Thank you for participating in this 10 question survey! Many of these animal welfare issues were addressed in legislation that failed in the 2017 Texas session, and others represent areas of concern consistently reported by our stakeholders, partners and chapters. We know this is not a comprehensive list of all areas of crises for animals, and we welcome your feedback.

  • The Tethering Story

    As midnight approached on May 23, 2017, our chance to pass a bill that would have banned the inhumane tethering of dogs in Texas came to a dramatic conclusion.

    Which legislators ran out the clock and blocked compassionate, common-sense legislation? Watch our video to find out. 

    Cruelly chained dogs will have to wait two more years, but we are acting now.
