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.
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.
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!

in Austin (central TX-area): Sat., Oct. 19 horse-training challenge with $5,000 in prize money. To participate &/or $pon$or the Challenge: http://cts.vresp.com/c/?BluebonnetEquineHuma/ee8b373108/0fff0c10e5/3efd1e7080 under “Challenge” or Info@BluebonnetHorseExpo.com or 888-542-5163. Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society (BEHS) launched the first Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge in 2009 to introduce the public to rescue horses while showcasing the horses’ talents. “Far too often people look down on rescue horses, seeing them as unwanted or useless,” says BEHS Executive Director Dr. Jennifer Williams. “Our goal with the Challenge is to prove that assumption false, & our horses & the Training Challenge participants have made us proud each year! Some of our Challenge horses have gone on to be kids’ horses, competitive trail & endurance horses, & show horses.” The Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge (the Challenge) is a training competition open to anyone in Texas or a surrounding state who is willing to become an approved foster home for Bluebonnet. It includes five divisions: Professional Trainer, Foster Home/Amateur Showing Under Saddle, Foster Home/Amateur Showing in Hand, Youth, & Senior Foster Home/Amateur Showing in Hand (new for this year). Contestants spend three months (July-October) working with a horse from the rescue & then demonstrate the horse’s skills in a freestyle competition & over an obstacle course at the Bluebonnet Horse Expo on Sat., October 19 in Austin, Texas. In addition to the new Senior Foster Horse/Amateur division, this year’s event offers several other improvements including increased prize money, extra points for those horses shown under saddle, & a Difficulty Score which is used to rate the horse’s behavior or training prior to the beginning of the Challenge (so that the judges can better rate each horse’s progress). Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society is accepting applications for participants until July 1 for the 2013 Rescue Horse Training Challenge. Each participant will be assigned a horse in July & will pick up his or her horse around July 15. The organization is also seeking $pon$or$ in order to offer even more competitive award$ to participants. $pons$or$hip benefits include complimentary admission, advertising privileges, vendor space & more.
