Let's energize and organize for the animals:
This year's workshop sessions will cover animal legislation updates at the state and federal levels, advocacy skills training, and panel discussions featuring a diverse group of animal welfare experts.
Our "Break the Chain" Gala keynote speaker will be Phil Arkow, internationally acclaimed lecturer, author and educator, who will address the link between animal cruelty and violence toward humans.
And, because it's also an evening of celebration, we have special guest appearances lined up by some very special four-legged friends!
Don't miss this opportunity to celebrate THLN's 40 years of advocacy for the animals, learn new advocacy skills, and make new friends within the animal protection community. We hope to see you there!
THLN has drafted a bill it will lobby to pass into law in the 2015 Texas lawmaking session. The bill will ban tethering of dogs via heavy chains. It will also require that dogs have proper (and dry) shelter, easy access to food and water, a minimum tether length, a properly-fitted and comfortable collar, and swiveling tether hinges on each end of the tether to prevent entanglement. Lastly, the bill will grant law enforcement and animal control officers the ability to issue citations, fines, and ultimately remove the animal if the infractions are not corrected.
