Please Support HB 921

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a resident of Texas, I ask you to please support House Bill 921. If enacted into law, this bill would improve oversight of animal shelters and help ensure these facilities are properly caring for animals.

If passed into law, HB 921 would require animal shelters to maintain records of all animals who enter their facilities and to share the records on their websites.

When oversight of animal shelters and other facilities is strengthened, we help to ensure the humane treatment of animals in their care. Likewise, when shelters are transparent, the public and policymakers like you know that tax dollars are being used to support effective policies that improve the lives of animals. Transparency also helps shelters increase adoption rates, attract volunteers, and gain community support. People want to support a shelter they know is working hard to save lives.

Please support HB 921 and ensure the wellbeing of animals in your state.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
