Texas Humane Legislation Network


Anyone who has been reading this blog for awhile knows the story of Davy. If you don't know it, you need to read it. I became an activist after Davy was bloodlessly mutilated. At that time, I didn't even know about the THLN. Since 2001 when I testified to the Texas Senate and House committees I have been a supporter of THLN. They do amazing work, and have helped get many wonderful bills passed in Texas to stop animal cruelty, canned hunts, cock and dog fighting, horse slaughter for human consumption and many other important legislative changes. But there is still so much to be done!

If you live in Texas, please get involved. Many of their meetings are held in Austin, but this one is here in the DFW Metroplex. You can bet I'll be there!

Texas is a model for the rest of the nation! Other states need to adopt something like this!
