Need to get the word out on this and try to get it killed. OPPOSE HB 2562 By Sheets, Laubenberg, Farrar
Relating to “Care,” and Sheltering for ALL dogs
THIS IS NOT A TETHERING LAW AS CLAIMED,
BUT A “BACK DOOR” ATTEMPT TO AMEND OUR TEXAS ANIMAL CRUELTY LAW
By Humane Society of U.S. and Texas Humane Legislation Network (their Texas partner)
Who held a joint “Texas Lobby Day” with ASPCA at the Capitol! HB 2562 amends existing law regarding tethering and adds provisions for ALL “unattended” outside dogs, including those that are not tethered. “Unattended” is not defined by any length of time. This bill goes far beyond any reasonable requirements for proper care of dogs and shows a lack of animal expertise.
Texas Penal Code 42.092 Cruelty to Nonlivestock Animals, Section (a) (7) already defines “Necessary food, water, care, or shelter:” as including food, water, care, or shelter provided to the extent required to maintain the animal in a state of good health. This is a very reasonable definition instead of the onerous regulations proposed below in HB 2562:
Unfortunately many times laws are written from the urban dog owner’s perspective without taking into consideration low income dog owners and many working dog breeds or farm dogs. HB 2562 is full of room for abusive enforcement and harassment by “animal rights” extremists, whose goal is to end all use of animals.
IN THIS HB 2562 FURTHER MANDATES NO PLASTIC OR METAL BARRELS IN SECTION 1 CHAPTER D
NO DOGS LEFT OUT SIDE UNATTENDED YOU MUST ABTAIN A STATE LICENSE TO TRAIN YOUR OWN DOG FOR ANY ACTIVITY. THIS IS JUST FEW PIT FALLS IN THIS HB 2562 DO NOT HAVE TIME TO COVER THE ENTIRE BILL THIS IS A VERY BAD BILL IF YOU LIVE IN THE STATE OF TEXAS PLEASE CALL YOUR HOUSE OF REPRESEATIVES TODAY AND ASK HIM TO VOTE NO TO HB2562 DO IT TODAY THIS BILL HAS BEEN PUT ON THE FAST TRACK THEY ARE TRYING TO RUN IT THROUGH FAST


IF THIS IS PASSED IT WILL TAKE EFFECT SEPTEMBER 1 2015.

I have got a couple of lawyers going through these changes, as well as my self. Will have it picked apart in a day or two.  Not everything in these proposed  changes is bad for us. I will have a list of proposed changes that need to be made as well who to contact, if anyone is interested.

Thanks Paul T

This bill covers dog houses in addition to many other things.  PLASTIC BARREL DOG HOUSES WILL BE AGAINST THE LAW IF THIS PASSES.
