We at the Texas Humane Legislation Network - a 501c4 - are working to stop abuse before it starts. While thousands of caring citizens spend countless hours rescuing dogs from heavy chains - without strong laws in place, abusers can continue to replace the animal at the end of the chain just broken. The mission of the Texas Humane Legislation Network is to promote the humane treatment of animals through legislation, education and advocacy.
Our IRS status as a 501c4 allows us to be different. While there are *thousands* of 501c3s in Texas formed to help animals, they are *VERY* limited in how much they can lobby, and are outright prohibited from participating in any partisan activities.
