SB 762, our bill to strengthen our felony cruelty statute in Texas, has passed the Senate thanks to your calls and emails! The bill is now awaiting a hearing date for the House floor - but we just have seven days until the deadline!
You can find your State Representative at this link.
Unfortunately perpetrators of animal torture and abuse in our state are often given a slap on the wrist. The FBI now tracks animal cruelty offenses and the link between animal cruelty and domestic violence is well documented. The last time the Texas Animal Cruelty Statute was revised was in 2007 -- and the time to strengthen the law is now!
When animals are safe from harm, communities are safer. Thank you for speaking for the voiceless!
