Texas House Bill 135

Texas House Bill 135

A bill to support! Texas HB135 puts a halt to radical animal rights groups misleading legislators with their “traveling animal act” and “animal performance” bans. Across the country, we have seen these bans proposed at both local and state levels. Some states have already passed these superfluous laws. Instead of enforcing current animal welfare and cruelty […]

It applies to any animal which can be sold as a pet, so basically all […]

ACTION ALERT: New Hampshire HB688

UPDATE 2/27/19: HB688 has been “laid on table.” The bill may be voted on someday, but for now, the bill has been set aside (or tabled). If the session ends and the bill has not been taken off the table, the bill dies. Utterly irrational and completely overreaching! This is easily one of the greatest examples […]
