Help us fight for strengthening the punishments for animal cruelty in Texas.
Please sign the online Petition and let your voice be heard.
Since it was published on 9/20/13, over 16,000 people have already signed. We need to gather as many signatures as we possibly can! If you’re in Texas, you can also write your Senator and Representative. Every effort must be made to put harsh penalties in place in Texas Penal Code 42.09 for those who choose to abuse/neglect animals. Below are a few comments from those who have already signed:
June of San Antonio says, “As a horse owner, there is never an excuse to starve or neglect an animal. Surrendering an animal or having the animal confiscated, should keep these people from ever owning another horse, and charges of cruelty should have teeth, rather than a slap on the wrist.
Dondi of San Antonio says, “The cruelty is beyond imagination. The resources needed to rescue and restore are stretched to the breaking point. The ones on the front line are pouring their hearts, souls and dollars into this. We need the law to do it’s job. Texas is better than this!”
Jill of Magnolia says, “I see this more often than I’d like too. It’s disgusting and there is no reason for it. Tougher punishment is the only way to help insure that these people aren’t allowed to just get a new herd and starve them as well. Because that’s what they do.”
Dawn of Goliad says, “Until there are strong punishments for these criminal acts, abuse will continue!!! We are the animals only voice!!!”
These are just a few of the hundreds of comments we are receiving on the Petition and not only from Texas, they are from all over the US and the world. By adding your signature you are voicing your opinion to the Governor and the Senators and Representatives in Texas who are receiving this Petition.
Let’s do it – sign it yourself and then ask friends and family to do the same.
