The Texas legislative session ends soon, and TIME IS RUNNING OUT for SB 295 to move forward. We will lose the fight for Texas dogs to have adequate shelter and humane restraints if SB 295 isn’t voted out of the House Calendars committee in the next 3 days.  

Texas dogs need you to speak up loudly to your Representative and because time is so sort, we are asking you to deliver your message through every possible channel. If you have called before, please call again! If you have emailed before, please email again! 

We need to deliver this message:

“The dogs of Texas are running out of time. As your constituent, I’m asking you to please help us get SB 295 out of Calendars Committee and to the House floor today.”

With so many bills running out of time, elected officials are hearing from lots of people around the clock. But we need them to hear from us! Here are some examples of how to break through the noise and reach your representative:

  • By Phone:  Please go here and put in your address.  Hit enter and you will click on your Texas State House Representative to find their phone number in the Austin Capitol office (512 area code).  Identify yourself as a constituent and ask them to please support and speak up for SB295.
  • On Twitter: Find your Texas State House Representative’s Twitter handle here and send them a tweet asking them to please  support and speak up for SB295 and help get it out of the Calendars Committee (feel free to include a picture of a dog on a chain or without shelter!)
  • On Facebook: Please go to your Texas State House Representative’s page and first “Like” the page if you haven’t already.  Then, if the page allows it, post a message asking them to please support and speak up for SB295 and add a brief personal message.
  • On NextDoor: Post a message about SB295 letting people know they need to contact their Texas State House Representative in Austin and post this link:  https://www.thln.org/contact-legislator

Messages are most effective if you are brief, to the point and respectful. 

Thank you! We know you’ve heard from us a lot, but your help has never been more important. The deadline is quickly approaching.

Thank you for all you do for the animals of Texas –

It would have been a good idea to link the bill to this article.
