The Texas Humane Legislation Network (THLN.org) held an evening conference at the South Texas School of Law on Wednesday, June 29, 2016. With representation and volunteers in multiple Texas cities, especially metropolitan, the conference drew an attendance of approximately 100 for the Houston event.
On the issue of animal rights, several advocates spoke to their issue specialty and concentration. A Harris County Constable addressed briefed the audience as a first responder assigned to animal cruelty cases in the field.
Laura Donahue, Executive Director of THLN, was the featured presenter. Donahue’s presentation focused on past achievements of the organization, and a very aggressive agenda for the upcoming 2017 Texas legislative session. Although primarily aligned with Democrat legislators, Donahue believes that bi-partisan support can be achieved on new laws for animal protection.
Conservatives have to ask if new laws are called for? Do the current laws on the books adequately protect Texas animals? Or, is there a real need to expand law enforcement powers to protect animals?
