Dave and Rita Cross


  • Laura, My name is Rita Cross, President of “Citizen Advocates for Animals”(CAFA) in Lakeway, TX. We have been fighting the City officials for a long while to end the cruel deer trapping program. We have made some good progress and hope that the recent trapping will be the last in Lakeway.


    Our May meeting is the 19th at the Library in Lakeway at 3:00 PM. We are aware of all the good you do for animals. When I was with “All Things Wild” a few years ago, we had a speaker from THLN and learned a whole lot from her. Would there be someone who would be willing to present a program for our CAFA group at this May meeting?


    Thanks for your consideration and look forward to hearing form you!

    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 fine organizations who do.

    SIGN OUR PETITION: Tell Texas Legislators Dogs Deserve Adequate Shelter

    Jack.jpg

    Every 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 differently. 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.

    Please help us change the fate of Texas animals. They can’t afford to wait.

    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.
