Contact TX legislators to legalize rescuing from Pounds & Shelters: HB2981

Ask Your Representative to Help Improve Texas Pounds and Shelters!

I have good news. A bill that would help save animals in Texas pounds and shelters is on its way to a vote in the Texas House of Representatives. HB 2981 would prohibit pounds and shelters in counties of at least 75,000 people from killing animals when rescue groups are willing to save them.

Reach out to your State Representative today and urge him or her to support HB 2981 to save animals’ lives in Texas.

HB 2981 fosters cooperation between publicly funded pounds and shelters and private rescue organizations. Before killing an animal, shelters will be required to post notice of their intention to “euthanize” the animal and give private organizations the opportunity to take the animal.

This bill will save the lives of many cats and dogs in shelters, and as a result, save tax dollars that would otherwise be spent “euthanizing” animals. HB 2981 is a win-win bill for Texas’ taxpayers and for animals. It would result in countless cats and dogs being adopted into loving homes instead of being killed in shelters.

Take action today. Urge your State Representative to support HB 2981.

Sincerely,   Becky Robinson

P.S. Please forward this to your compassionate friends and family in Texas. Together, we can create life-saving change for animals!
