Here in Texas, the state legislature meets every other year for six months. This is the only time to pass a law, otherwise Texas citizens and their animals have to wait an additional two years in order to try again. While our 501-c4 THLN will be back at the Capitol in 2021 with the Adequate Shelter & Restraint bill, you can help chained dogs in your municipality NOW. Our Tethering Toolkit is a great way to start making positive changes for the chained dogs in your neighborhood.

Cruelly chained dogs will have to wait two more years, but we are acting now.
